Who We Are
In 1999, our founder Craig started Groovy Gecko in one tiny room but with one big idea; that the future of video content was live and online. Craig started the company with Eddie Robins, our much missed Technical Director, to help clients get the best out of this new format.
Almost 20 years later, with over 45 years’ experience between our two directors Jake and Craig, we are established within the live streaming industry as the go-to company for some of the biggest ad agencies, brands and social media platforms in the world. We work from our headquarters in London and on location to stream great content to users across the globe from around the world while constantly trying to evolve what the medium can do.
We can offer an end to end solution where we handle everything from connectivity to camera crews or deliver a simple encode and partial page build service. Groovy Gecko keep things simple and won’t blind you with science of the tech, unless you want all the details. We base all of our projects on our own tried and tested software and have a comprehensive process of risk management.
Honesty is at the core of our company and that means analysing the risks involved in your stream, the number of people who may or may not watch and being truthful about our technical team’s range of black t-shirts. We make working together an easy and enjoyable experience and that is why we have so many clients who have been with us for over a decade.
Groovy Gecko comprises of five departments.
Sales and Marketing: This team will be your first point-of-contact regarding initial queries, quotes and all things PR related.
Project Management: The PM team will deal with the logistics of your live stream, making sure everything runs smoothly.
Technical Engineers: This team will be at your event to set up and run the tech throughout your stream, and will be on-hand for any last minute questions.
Development and Coding: We have a dev team comprised mainly of people called Jo(h)n who help to continually push what our platforms can offer. A word of advice when talking to a Jon or John is to always ask for a surname.
Support: The Support team are here to assist with the management of our live streams, and to answer any day-to-day questions from clients who have one of our video platforms.
