We can only be as good as our people.

Intellectual curiosity, knowledge-sharing, and constructive critique are the cornerstone of our culture, helping us maintain the confidence of our clients, without losing our independent perspective.

Learning every day

Everyone is a potential teacher

We celebrate our team’s diverse talents and actively encourage them all to learn from each other on a daily basis.

Upskilling, brick by brick

Through fortnightly brownbags, one-on-one mentorship, hosting events, and contributions to open source, we promote knowledge sharing.

A self-defined path

We support everyone’s unique vision of their growth, with a career framework and self development budget (£2000/ €2000 year) for each team member to utilise.

Personal growth at YLD

Insight into what life’s really like at YLD.

A challenging, dynamic workplace

No trivial work

We continuously push ourselves to improve by taking on challenging projects, applying emerging technologies and testing their boundaries.

Define the cutting edge

We’re at the forefront of software engineering and digital product design. We talk about them at conferences, contribute to them in open source and train others in how we do it. And all of these sought-after training programmes are available internally, for free.

Always flexible

We want everyone to grow at YLD and, wherever possible, our team members can switch internal projects to those that could potentially contribute further to their development.

Our work

Creating something we can all be proud of is vital in keeping the team engaged. That’s why we take every opportunity to show off the projects that we’re particularly proud of.

Devoted to the open source community

It’s all about good engineering

We believe in making a better world for absolutely everyone. We’re active contributors to the open source community (check out our Github and StackOverflow) and are proud members of OS foundations.


From running meetups and conferences to publishing open source contributions, we’re always looking for ways to give back and engage with the wider community outside our offices.
