About the company


At One iota we build digital customer experiences for brands. A key part of the company is our MESH platform and set of microservices, which our frontends plug into via a RESTful API interface. We build interactive digital experiences using technology including touchscreens and cameras, and we’re always trying out new technologies such as RFID, frameworks like Flutter, and exploring how we can build upon and improve our apps and services. We also build native apps, so we can connect the omnichannel customer journey, and a set of dashboards and tools our clients can use to manage these experiences. Our clients are leading retailers and brands, both in the UK and internationally, who we form close partnerships with.
