Technology firm, yboo, has smashed growth targets over the last month and as a result have recruited a new project manager, Gabrielle Caves, along with a social media intern, which in turn has resulted in the need for an office expansion.
Gabby will be working on engaging the end user and recording their experiences, as the firm strives to bring their app to 60m smartphone users in the UK.
Gabby previously worked in financial services attracting the attention of millions of consumers to competitive mortgage deals despite each consumer’s unique circumstances.
The firm, which was founded in 2016 by Martyn Gould and Paul Doyle, is also looking to recruit three software developers to join its growing team. The additional recruits have meant that yboo has had to expand its office space in Holmfirth to ensure it can deliver on further growth targets and support its international expansion.
Martyn Gould, founder of yboo, said: “In the last few months we have gone from strength to strength; in addition to our recent investment announcement, we have taken on Gabby – who I’m sure will be a huge asset to the yboo team.
“We have always been committed to bringing job opportunities into the Holme Valley, and with the need to further recruit for software developers and a social media intern, we have expanded our office space in Holmfirth.
“Exceeding our growth plans for this month means that we are on track to pursue our international expansion plans in the Middle East and in Australia over the next year. In addition, we will be launching our B2B portal this month which we anticipate will have a huge impact on UK mobile operators and their propositions”
Yyboo is a mobile phone application that compares SIM only deals from the UK mobile market by measuring consumer usage to match them with the best deal and saves the UK consumer on average £156 per year on their mobile phone bill.
