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’ve doubled our headcount, going from 20 people to now a team of 40 (and growing by the day). We’re based in the UK and USA, managing 100+ clients across the globe! But having the majority share of the UK market is not enough for us; we want the world! Our next target is to conquer the US and to more than double our revenue year on year. Sounds exciting, right?


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

Having a flexible working week means that our Geckos have the power to dictate their schedule, so we’ll see you in the morning at some point, where the day starts with breakfast; the most important meal of the day. Vital for stimulating the body and mind, we like to provide breakfast for our Geckos to set them up for the working day ahead and get those neurons firing!

Sat at your desk in our colourful and creative New Town office you will work with the latest Apple tech and software products. Want to zone out and really concentrate on something, then grab a beanbag and your Bose noise-cancelling headphones and get stuck in. Or if you want to chill out then why not choose a book from the library and enhance your intellect or if you fancy blowing off some steam then join the ping pong league.

Fancy a coffee? Well, have one from our delicious bean to cup machine! Or maybe you need a little sugar hit from the soft drinks fridge? Hungry? Have a snack? We’re big feeders; whether its fresh fruit or treats or birthday cake, we’ve got something for you (and if we don't then we’ll get it for you). Oh, and we have fortnightly Company lunches… mmm.

Go on, tell me more...

We’re a social bunch, so come Friday, after the working day is done, you’ll always find at least some of us at the local ‘public house’ next door, discussing weekend plans. Unless some of us happen to be working from home that day or it is your birthday, in which case we insist you have the day off!

We’re also very kind Geckos and are strong advocates of good mental health; we’re always on the lookout for new ways in which we can support our people. We are super proud to partner with mental health gym provider, Sanctus, offering our Geckos a Coach who acts as a sounding board for anything they want to talk through; either professionally or personally. We also offer on-site reflexology to try to keep our Geckos as ‘zen’ as possible.   

Speaking of good work-life balance, we truly want our Geckos to be happy, healthy and productive. Therefore, as part of our commitment to providing flexibility for our Geckos in their daily lives, we have adopted a unique ‘pot’ approach made up of 45 days, comprising of:

x28 days holiday entitlement (more can be acquired through salary sacrifice)

x1 day off for your birthday

x4 days gifted during Christmas / New Year

x12 Working from Anywhere days

While we’re still young and therefore keen on building that face-to-face connection and culture, we also want to empower our Geckos with the autonomy and ability to work from anywhere, from their home to a sunny beach resort, twelve (12) days each year. It is our aspiration that by adopting this more relaxed style, it reduces the potential for burnout giving improved work/life balance.

Our Geckos are our biggest asset; we know this. And we care about them! Our talented Geckos are some of the best in the biz and we are firm believers in creating the right culture and environment that inspires and nurtures our talent, allowing our Geckos to grow their careers alongside the Company. We’re big on our Geckos being masters of their fate and as such, we encourage our people to carve out their careers and support them wholeheartedly in their individual personal and professional development goals. We also listen to what our Geckos have to say and are agile enough that we can react instantly and welcome suggestions or recommendations always!

We’re always on the look-out for ambitious people who want to be part of our ongoing success story and can be passionate about making a difference to institutions through our range of products. If this sounds like you then please refer to the 'Join Us' section below for a full list of current vacancies and for details on how to apply. We also welcome speculative applications which can be submitted at any time.
