Help us build a career champion

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


bring out your best

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

Benefits at Otta

24 days holiday + 3 EOY holidays (excl. bank holidays)

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

Health insurance

Private medical insurance with AXA. This also includes cash reimbursement for dental and optical costs

Personal development allowance

Spend £500 to help you grow as an individual. E.g. Audible, news subscriptions, books

Wellbeing allowance

Spend £500 to keep healthy. E.g. Gym membership, Headspace, yoga classes

Flexible working

Work from home when you need to. We care about output, not clocked hours

Choose your laptop

Everyone gets a new laptop when they join us

Team lunches and dinners

We love to eat together as a team, so go out regularly for food and socials

Help us decide

We're looking forward to working with our early employees on what matters the most (e.g. enhanced parental leave)


put candidates first

Candidates first

Otta was started to make job search less soul crushing. Our main focus is meticulously crafting the best experience for candidates.

There for each other

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 challenge because we care

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.

What's the return?

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.

What would it take to learn faster?

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.

What could exceptional look like?

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.
