About us

We’re a small 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 two ex-Atlassians, Benjamin Humphrey and Bradley Ayers. We started Dovetail with a belief that deeply understanding one’s customers is the secret ingredient to making great products.

We’re on a mission

Dovetail has grown a lot thanks to our 1,300+ happy customers. We believe that every single organization conducts research of some form. Our mission is to enable teams to make better decisions through deep customer understanding.

What we value

We live these values every day, in everything we do.

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.

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.

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.
