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
Every month we interview members of our team, because we love to share their 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.
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.
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
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.
The latest talks
We encourage our team to get out and share all that amazing knowledge as often as possible. Here’s a small selection of recent talks they’ve given.
We work in a competitive industry and that means companies offer some pretty sweet benefits packages. We offer what we believe to be both competitive and generous as our way of showing that we really care about our team.
