A leading core banking platform provider, Yobota is delighted to announce the appointment of Jay Hunt as its Head of Platform.

Jay Hunt brings a wide range of leadership and innovation experience from Tier 1 banks, such as Head of Product Development for Transactional FX at HSBC, as well as product-focused roles at JP Morgan and RBS. Jay has successfully led teams building complex API products for clients across a wide range of industries. Most recently, Jay has been helping clients through consulting.

Jay will play a vital role in Yobota’s growth by overseeing the Platform strategy and project prioritisation to allow its clients to excel. Yobota’s cloud-based, extensible Platform is built to give customers the highest level of flexibility and security. It runs some of the most innovative financial products offered on the UK market, with the Platform’s capabilities and vendor integrations expanding continuously.

Ammar Akhtar, Yobota’s co-founder and CEO, said: “Our mission is to build the next standard of core banking technology, and it’s very exciting to have Jay join our team.

Our Platform is built to enable innovative financial products which address real customer needs and therefore exists within the intersection between the retail and wholesale core banking technology space.

Jay’s experience running high availability, mission-critical platforms within some of the world’s leading banks is a great addition to the capabilities we’ve been building over the past few years.

Jay Hunt added: “I am very happy to join Yobota at this exciting stage, with new clients coming onboard. The Platform has already proven itself not only by running rapidly growing savings and lending businesses, but also shown a great level of flexibility and speed to market when introducing new features.

With the current pandemic, it is clear that now, more than ever, clients require a resilient and scalable Platform for their core banking. Yobota’s cloud-native offering delivers to these requirements way beyond traditional platforms; it’s great to add further expertise and be a part of that momentum and exceed expectations for clients across all tiers.
