Come join us...

Working with Explori

Explori work with events all around the world from our headquarters in London.  Our experienced team specialise in customer feedback for the live events industry.  Research, software development and customer support all happen in house.

Work from our home or yours

Based on feedback from our team, we have decided to keep a blended approach to working, with team members designing their own schedule with a combination of home and office working.  Unless otherwise specified, all these roles allow you to design your own work schedule, but you will need to be available to attend face-to-face meetings in Croydon around four days per month.

Flexible as standard

All roles offer flexible working as standard, with core hours from 10am to 4pm UK time with team members deciding their own start and finish times around this.  All our roles are also available part-time or as non-standard work patterns.

Crazy for the Cronx?

As much as we love our flexible working, we also love our Croydon home - London's most southerly borough.  Our bright, open offices put us at the heart of a new development of restaurants and bars, including a BoxPark, so plenty of opportunity to socialise with the team.  But more importantly, East Croydon station is on our doorstep, with fast frequent links to Victoria, London Bridge, Clapham, Farringdon and services to Surrey, Gatwick and Bedfordshire.

Become a business owner

All of our team have the opportunity to earn share options in Explori and benefit directly from our ambitious growth plans.  We'd love to tell you more when we meet.
