About us

We’re a rapidly growing Australian company helping teams worldwide understand their customers, make better decisions, and do great work.

It all started in 2017

Dovetail was started in 2017 by Benjamin Humphrey and Bradley Ayers. They started Dovetail with a belief that deeply understanding one’s customers is the secret ingredient to making great products.

What we value

This is how we talk the talk and walk the walk.

Put the customer first

Seek to understand—and then solve—real customer problems. Earn and keep customer love through transparency, authenticity, and results. Watch competitors, but obsess over customers.

If we do it, we nail it

First impressions matter. Sweat the details, don’t sacrifice on quality, and create an awesome experience at every touchpoint whether it’s support, our interview process, or the product.

Stay humble

Be authentic, humble, and empathetic to others. Remember the human behind the work. Operate collaboratively—rally around problems, and celebrate wins together.

Do the thing

Keep the speed up by taking pragmatic risks. Only agonize over irreversible decisions. Be reliable and follow through. If you say you’ll do something, do it.

Open by default

Trust others and assume good intent. If you need to build context and understanding; ask. Always share information freely.

Creating Dovetail’s values

“We want a set of values to build a shared understanding, and to help keep everyone aligned as we expand. The values need to help us make decisions about what to build, how we scale, and who to hire.”
