Our awesome SaaS products provide the smartest solutions to common challenges faced in the Higher Education sector and are used by the world's best-known Universities. But to consistently deliver outstanding creativity, technical excellence, and remarkable customer service; that takes something truly special. It takes a high-performance culture built by people who, not only, understand what it means to show true humilityhumanity, and humour, but who also love what they do and most importantly, who care! It’s what we call being a Gecko - and we have a whole team of them!

As we grow, we’re committed to ensuring that Gecko remains an awesome place to work. We want our Geckos to come to work every day, excited to be challenged and create something awesome, in a place where they feel valued, where they have a voice and are where they able build their careers in a fun and supportive environment.

Gecko Life

Connection, creativity and conversation are at the heart of everything we do, which is why we’ve adapted well from office to hybrid working. Whilst we still meet up and can work from the office, we’ve moved to a remote-first approach, meaning our old Gecko traditions and rituals have been swapped out with virtual alternatives – whether that be mobbing on Discord or hosting Company Stand Ups on Zoom or teams meeting in Slack Huddles. The ‘Friday pub’ this happens virtually now (and still in-person); birthday cakes are now birthday cake vouchers; and endless Slack channels replace daily topics such as #ratemyplate or #fit or #fun-n-games (we’re pretty proud of how much we utilise Slack). Randomised virtual coffees each week mean we never lose touch, and we have lots of fun teaching each other online classes such as HIIT, yoga or meditation; online group journaling and even cooking classes!

But that's not all - see what our team think about working at Gecko, below...
