YouTeam at the LeadDev Conference: Introducing i1, the Future of Developer Vetting

The annual LeadDev London Conference, known for being a key gathering of tech industry management, was a significant platform for our company this year. We firmly believe in fostering a culture that emphasizes the sharing of knowledge, exchanging ideas, and advancing the tech community; hence, we took great pride in sponsoring this event that resonates with these values.

With a turnout exceeding 1,000 participants, the LeadDev stands as a beacon for engineering managers globally. Our company was honored to be represented by a big delegation, led by none other than our Founder, Yurij Riphyak, and our COO, Rita Bodnarchuk.

Across two exhilarating days, we dove deep into conversations with engineering managers from diverse sectors. It was an enriching experience to exchange insights with representatives from iconic brands like Skyscanner, Tesco, Zara, American Express, Adobe, BBC, Booking, Bloomberg, Spotify, Alaska Airlines, among others.
