About Dovetail

We help teams understand their customers, make better decisions, and do great work.

Every single product or service organization conducts user research of some form, in order to explore what new products they could build, or to understand what they could improve about existing ones. Our mission is that Dovetail becomes the go-to research platform for these organizations.

With Dovetail, researchers, analysts, designers, and product managers can store user research data in one place, analyze qualitative data to discover patterns and insights, and share research findings with the rest of their organization. We started Dovetail because we believe that deeply understanding one’s customers is the secret ingredient to making great products.

Our culture values responsibility and accountability, trust and openness, efficiency and speed. We’re all about sweating the details on delightful experiences, tackling ambitious technical challenges, and learning twice as fast as anywhere else. We’re extremely customer-focused, regularly talking with customers in-person, via email, or over video. Our company Slack workspace is even shared with over 600 end-users.

Dovetail has been growing rapidly since we first launched in late 2017. We now have hundreds of happy customers worldwide like Arm, BCG, Chargebee, CSIRO Data61, Deliveroo, Deloitte, Harvard, Elsevier, Freshworks, Kayak, Spotify, Thoughtworks, Uniqa, VMware, and many more.
