About Us 2017-05-22T09:31:53+00:00

Hello there!

We are Yoshki. More than just another technology company.

Our Mission

The concept behind Yoshki was born in 2009 and was originally designed as a tool to assist web developers. However the pioneers behind the Yoshki vision quickly realised that the benefits could be passed on to organisations looking to protect their brand and manage their digital assets more efficiently.

Yoshki’s reach is worldwide and across all industries. Whether a membership association, a popular retail brand or a small university brand protection is vital to consumer confidence.

Yoshki is the growing force in brand protection and online asset management. Our Global Headquarters is located in the heart of Software Valley in Reading, UK and we have regional offices in Birmingham (UK) and remote support staff in Massachusetts (US) and Sydney (AU).

Our Values

01
Go the extra mile

Strive for greatness in everything you do. Go beyond delivering what works to discover what’s best.

02
Do what’s right

What is right isn’t necessarily the same as what is easy. You never hold your pride or career above our customers’ needs. You want to build a company that creates value beyond mere capital. Trust every team member to make tough calls and recognize that they rely on you to do the same.

03
Ownership mentality

From engineering to PR, from a day-one intern to the Board of Directors, everyone can directly contribute to our success. We are collectively building the product and company of our dreams. The journey matters to us as much as the goal.

Executive Leadership Team

The unique qualities that have established Yoshki as the world’s first proactive brand protection and digital asset management tool is the direct result of our team’s deep knowledge and experience of our target markets. Our Executive Leadership Team looks after our global network of staff and run the day-to-day operations of the business.
