Our values

  • We focus on quality: At Yola, we believe in people, excellence, and delivery. We develop our own product so quality is the key. We have a burning desire for high code quality and architecture.
  • We innovate: We encourage you to suggest changes to the process and the product
    and bring your own ideas to the table.
  • We are fast learners who are looking for engineers who have a critical and open mindset and are not afraid to build fast, fail fast and learn from their mistakes.
  • We have no red tape: You work directly with the decision-makers in the team, meaning there’s very little hierarchy.
  • We work hard not because we are told to, but because
  • we genuinely love what we do and do what we love.
