We understand the difference between a good workplace and a really great workplace

Become part of the Gecko family

And we don't just mean new "employees"... that's not our style!

We pride ourselves with the fact that we do things a little different; we look for potential friends, fellow problem solvers and outside-the-box thinkers who will be proud to come together to deliver a meaningful solution that enables today's HigherEd institutions to connect with over 6 million students worldwide!

Our platform of market-leading EdTech products are used by HigherEd institutions across the world to improve the way they recruit students, drive efficiencies in inquiry acquisition and increase conversion rates, whether they’re capturing inquiries at recruitment fairs in far-flung corners of the globe, registering attendees on to campus tours, or helping freshmen navigate the new world of higher education, our customers trust us to help deliver a great experience for their students. Oh, and we built our very own (and very clever) ChatBot too - did we mention that?

We're growing fast; in fact, in the last 12 months alone we doubled our headcount, managing 100+ clients across the globe! But having the majority share of the UK market is not enough for us; we want the world (and we want to have fun whilst we're at it).

GECKO LIFE

We like to think we're a little more the the usual clichés... but its still OK to miss them

Gecko life now, is very different to Gecko life at the start of 2020. But like our namesake, we adapt and thrive!

Until March, we were all mostly based in our colourful New Town office, used to seeing one-another every day, sharing stories, solving problems and creating great things together.

We had our lovely treats and perks such as the coolest gadgets, best furniture, free breakfast, fortnightly lunches, reflexology or massage, ping-pong leagues, Sprint burritos, drinks galore, cakes, treats left, right and centre... And we were social, so social. Come Friday, after the working week was done, you’d always find at least some of us at the local ‘public house’ next door, discussing weekend plans. 

Then the dreaded "C" word (coronavirus) began to come a bit too close for our liking so we made the decision to move to a temporary fully remote set-up in order to protect the wellbeing of our Geckos. 

Gecko Life Now

Now we're all working from home and although we miss the face-to-face human connection, we're thriving! 

Our usual Gecko traditions and rituals swapped out with virtual alternatives; Company Stand Ups are now completely virtual; the Friday pub is now also virtual (see picture, right); as is our daily (virtual) lunch room; birthday cakes are now birthday cake vouchers; numerous Slack channels replace daily topics such as #ratemyplate or #fit; and, our mental health Coach also takes all of her sessions virtually too. We've also started doing some new things such as; having randomised virtual coffees each week, something we'd not explored before but is really successful; quiz or games nights; teaching online classes such as HIIT, yoga or meditation; we've learned so much during these past months and we'll admit we are still learning and experimenting. 

We're not certain when we'll go back to the office or what that will look like yet but one thing's for sure, we do love the new commute!
