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 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.

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.”
