Searching for a job is a pivotal moment, yet it's often so transactional, frustrating, and draining. So we're on a mission to build a job search that brings out the best in candidates so they can find their dream job
We work hard to hire great people and provide the support they need to do some of their life's best work. We're a mission-driven bunch who love helping people find fulfilment
We believe plenty of holiday sets us up for success. We close the office for 3 days at the end of year, allowing the whole company to recharge

Spend £500 to help you grow as an individual. E.g. Audible, news subscriptions, books
Spend £500 to keep healthy. E.g. Gym membership, Headspace, yoga classes
Work from home when you need to. We care about output, not clocked hours
Everyone gets a new laptop when they join us
We love to eat together as a team, so go out regularly for food and socials

Otta was started to make job search less soul crushing. Our main focus is meticulously crafting the best experience for candidates.
Startups are hard, but more enjoyable when working with great people. We are supportive and generous with our time, whether it's giving feedback or brightening up someone's day.
We believe challenge allows us to reach new heights. From personal development to product design, we challenge because we care about each other and Otta’s success.
We like to make a lot happen with a little. Doing this requires an evaluation of return on investment, and discipline to work on the problems that will have the biggest impact.
Speed of iteration typically beats quality of iteration. We move fast when it helps us learn faster - we feel safe taking risks, finding smart shortcuts, or shipping experiments.
Our standards are high, and there are moments where it's worth pushing them further. We're comfortable asking hard questions to explore how to make something exceptional.
