Dojo

Since launching in 2019 to address business owners’ pain points across the UK, we’ve seen incredible growth as a scaling fintech, welcoming over 126,000 customers and growing the Dojo team to 1,200+ people across five locations. In that time, we’ve also introduced Dojo Virtual Queues & Bookings and the Dojo restaurant finder app, formerly known as WalkUp and loved by 1,700 restaurants and 800,000 diners.

Today, we work towards our mission to empower businesses to thrive in the Experience Economy by creating the tools and technology that turn transactions into meaningful relationships. For our business customers, that means fast funding, the fastest payments, smart integrations, and efficient virtual queues & bookings - all with instant insight across the board. For diners, that means getting seated at their favourite restaurants in just a couple of taps on the Dojo app. Whether it’s for busy business owners or hungry diners, every Dojo product is built to address real customer pain points by our dedicated teams in London, Bristol, Hull and Belfast.

Working at Dojo

We empower businesses to thrive in the experience economy. That means we have to constantly think about – and ultimately solve – complex problems for our customers.

We champion individuality and inclusivity. Because we believe having different points of view is how we generate our best solutions – our most creative ideas – and how we get the best outcomes for our customers.

We don't wait to be told – we get stuff done and then own our mistakes. We don't have it all figured out, but we know being relentless in our pursuit of better is the only way we'll achieve real change. Confidence with ambiguity is an essential trait at Dojo.

To create genuine change, we had to challenge what was possible and step into the unknown. To move fast and make good later. This risk-taking mentality fuels our thinking and actions to this day and is the engine behind our new products and services.
