Yottaa Company Overview
YOTTAA’s mission is to help eCommerce brands improve shopper experience and increase conversions through websites that load fast and offer engaging functionality.
YOTTAA was founded in 2009 by veteran technologists who saw two trends on a collision course: traditional “websites” were rapidly becoming more complex and sophisticated (and as a result, slow) – and online shoppers were becoming more and more impatient when waiting for slow web pages to load.
In the age of Amazon, everything is fast. In order to effectively compete, retailers must not only have sites that load quickly, they also need to differentiate their brand through distinctive imagery and eCommerce technologies. YOTTAA is purpose-built for improving the performance of today’s sophisticated eCommerce sites.

Here at YOTTAA, our values are the foundation of the company’s culture. Our customer-first mindset is woven into the fabric of the company. From the products we create to the way we run our trials, everything we do is focused on helping our customers achieve success. This mindset aligns our company and helps us continue to work together as one team, even as we experience tremendous growth. Technology is constantly changing, and the nature of bringing innovation to our customers requires us to move fast.
As a small company working in a fast-paced industry, we’ve been able to eliminate overbearing processes that could slow us down. We’re also a scrappy company, so there’s plenty of opportunities for employees to take ownership, grow their careers, and make an impact. At the end of the day, everyone at YOTTAA wants to help our customers make their web presence as awesome as possible.
My favorite part about working with Yottaa customers is the brands – they’re what keeps me motivated. The technology I work with is usually the same, but the brands and people change, and the dynamic between myself and the customer is always different.
I love the people that I work with. I love the challenge every day. I love the opportunity every day to get out there and meet new people. I love the fact that this is vital technology, and all you’ve got to do is find the right people in any company, and there’s a need for this technology.
