Meet The Guru
Resource Guru was born when two people, working in a digital agency, were grappling with a problem that didn’t seem to have any decent solutions. 8 years on, we have a leading productivity app that is changing the way teams manage time across the globe. We have some incredible customers including NASA, Ikea, Publicis, Accenture, Red Hat, KPMG, Pirelli, M&C Saatchi, VMware, Ogilvy, PwC, Virgin Media and the NHS. They all trust Resource Guru to handle one of their most precious assets – their people’s time.
We are a small, remote team with employees in the UK, Europe and South Africa. This means you would be free to work from anywhere with a good internet connection and a 4 hour time overlap with GMT business hours. We live in Slack, have daily video standups and some of us like to meet up occasionally to work together from coworking spaces. We’re a friendly team and like to think of ourselves as a family 🙂
