Who are we: 

We are yboo. Born separately and now together, following our hearts and building amazing things for millions of humans.

In a nutshell, we work together to help people understand more about the world of mobile phone deals. You can see how the yboo app works here:

Our why:

We believe that consumers should be matched to the best mobile deal for them based on price and signal strength. Zero work, zero faff, quick results, no gimmicks. We also believe that mobile operators should have the opportunity to understand everything about a consumer well before they hit the ‘buy now’ button. Everything we do is focused on this belief, therefore, we have made beautiful products to make our dream come alive.

Our values: 

  • We have strong values based on equality. Every permanent employee owns a part of the company (via future vesting shares), everyone has a voice and everyone is listened to.
  • We don’t do ‘office politics’. We have an open space, with a positive atmosphere and the skills, tools and equipment to help us all deliver great service to yboo customers and partners.
  • We do not tolerate negativity. We work together to make the best use of our skills and we look after each other.
  • We have a policy of developing our own people and promoting from within.
  • We like cups of tea, learning new stuff and running!
