become a gecko.
Groovy Gecko is unique in more ways than one. Our team is full of genuine people who care about what they do and care about each other. We work in a collaborative, open-plan office (pre-covid!), and being a small company, you’ll have a lot of autonomy in your role.
Everyone is very friendly and easy to have a chat with, and you can voice your opinion to anyone, including our CEO who likes to bring his two adorable cocker-spaniels, Panda and PJ, into the office on Wednesdays. We’re known for our innovative tools, progressive ways of working and our relationship with our clients. And although we don’t take ourselves too seriously (where’s the fun in that?), we do take our work and our technology seriously, and are proud to work with the best talent in the industry. We’re all still currently working from home due to Coronavirus, with some employees going into the office occasionally if needed, with the highest safety precautions taken.

This team mostly consists of people named Jo(h)n who write the code and help to continually push what our platforms and interactive tools can do. If you need one of our developers, we recommend you just shout “John” as there’s usually one around at any given time.
Our sales team builds relationships with potential clients while maintaining strong relationships with existing clients and staying on top of new inquiries and budgets without missing a beat! Our marketing manager liaises with our external agencies and looks after all things branding, content, social and events.
Our PM team closely looks after our live streaming events and ensures the rehearsals, equipment, venues, on-site internet connection, travel and anything associated with the upcoming events, are all running smoothly and on-schedule. They are the point of call for our clients and are super organised and effective at communicating with them on a regular basis.
Our engineers set up everything ahead of the event to make sure the equipment is working properly and the live stream runs smoothly. You could say they’re the ‘doers’ of Groovy Gecko – they make the live event happen. They show up on-site, set up our equipment and production, manage our encoding machines, and deal with any technical issues on the spot.
This team is full of IT experts and problem solvers. They respond to all client technical queries and manage our internal campaigns related to our systems and software implementations.
Our accounts team manage all things finance and keep the money rolling in! They’re a lovely bunch who sit in our office dogs’ favourite area in the office, so they’re extremely envied in that respect.
