Technology firm yboo has appointed a new project manager and social media intern after exceeding growth targets, and is now looking to expand its office space in West Yorkshire.

The company's mobile phone application compares SIM-based phone deals from the UK mobile market by measuring consumer usage.

Project manager Gabrielle Caves will has joined the company to engage with the end user and record their experiences, as the firm strives to bring their app to 60m smartphone users in the UK.

Caves previously worked in financial services, attracting the attention of consumers to competitive mortgage deals despite each consumer’s unique circumstances.

The company, which was founded in 2016 by Martyn Gould and Paul Doyle, is also looking to recruit three software developers to join their growing team.

"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," said Gould.

"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."
