Our story

We’re on a mission.

A mission to become first choice in product sampling and employee rewards.

Sampling is one of the best ways of attracting consumers to your brand. Other forms of advertising are great at driving awareness but experiencing a product as it’s meant to be is widely recognised to be superior.

There are many different product sampling options available but they’re often found lacking. Achieving scale would mean sacrificing on targeting and the sampling experience. Delivering a great experience would present scale challenges; either blow your entire marketing budget or fail to give the right experience to enough people.

This is ‘The Sampling Conundrum’ and it’s what we set out to solve.

In late 2015 we got together and created a vision for the future of product sampling. Office drop sampling has been around for years but we saw the potential for doing it properly and giving brands a better way to sample their products, and employers an easy, yet effective way to reward their staff.

We cultivate happy humans

You will be joining an innovative, ambitious team that’s on a mission to become the go-to in product sampling and employee rewards. Your work will be impacting on the lives of millions of people and helping drive positive change in the lifestyles those people lead.

Our values are to:

  • Be great, not just good
  • Make it happen as nothing is impossible
  • Never stop learning
  • Challenge yourself and those around you

We love meeting and speaking with people who live by these values so if you see them in yourself it would be great to hear from you. Email your CV to careers@gemsatwork.com along with a note to say why you would be a great fit and we’ll be in touch.
