We’re looking for a Customer Happiness Specialist (English and Spanish speaking) - North America, to play a key role in delivering outstanding customer support across all platforms.

Nice to meet you!

Yoto puts kids in control of an inspiring world of audio.

Our screen-free audio players let kids listen, learn and play at their own pace. All while making sure they’re safe to explore what inspires them.

The award-winning Yoto Player launched in early 2020 and quickly found a home on the world’s play mats, kitchen counters and bedside tables. It was later named one of TIME Magazine’s Top 100 Inventions of 2020. Yoto Mini, our portable player, launched in late 2021 and has accompanied kids on countless adventures. It won a D&AD pencil in 2022. Soon after, in 2023, we launched the 3rd generation of our player – almost instantly earning a place in the Junior Design Awards shortlist.

The Yoto Card Store has more than 700 titles from some of the world's best creators, publishers and labels. We also create Yoto Originals like this one. Oh, and this one too!
