Otta's take

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Dojo has been around for over ten years, after starting in 2009. In that time they have very much established themselves as a go-to partner for small businesses using card payments, allowing them to take control over the end-to-end payments process.

Their customer first strategy has made them a market leader, meaning they are handling more than £20bn in transactions each year. Since launching Dojo has grown to team of more than 950 and they have opened offices throughout the UK. The company has become profitable, and in the year ahead are looking to grow the team further and expand internationally, including in Ireland, Spain, France, and Italy.

The payments platform sector has become increasingly competitive as more and more entries to the market are trying to find niche spaces to play in. However, Dojo have not only established a foothold but have managed to grow their small business clientele over the years. They have set themselves apart with their customer-first approach, building their product specifically to address the needs of customers and continuing to keep customers at the centre of every decision.
