Koan began life in 2004, when its founders met and realised that together they could build a profitable business in the rapidly evolving e-commerce sector. With consistent year-on-year growth, we have been able to expand, both in size and scope. Our Bristol-based company is a multi-disciplinary team of talented, passionate people, who all share our core values and drive, and enjoy the research and collaboration required to create world-class digital products.

We are a cooperative, friendly group of people from all backgrounds and areas, and we believe we are stronger as a team than alone.

As well as the little luxuries - decent coffee, fresh fruit, Planet Rock on the Sonos - we also have a vibrant working environment that is based on learning, respect and collaboration. We exist to bring about measurable improvements with the software we curate, and we do this with a commitment to respecting development, culture and the different ways people work best.

Key People

Dave Telford Founder

I have a vision for Koan I really believe in. That's what gets me up every day; that and my two kids climbing on my head

Anna Spratley Marketing Director

My job is all about communication and building relationships, I need to be able to communicate the value of the products and brand to our customers & the relationships with our suppliers is key to running a successful business. The fact I have a lot of fun doing both is not something I take for granted

Melanie De Nervaux Managing Director

Operations is the Cog of the business, if one of the tiny cogs stops working the whole business is affected. I enjoy the challenges this brings and the varied tasks I get involved in. Everything from helping with customer complaints, testing site improvements and organising the warehouse move. Each of these tasks require a different approach and priority, sometimes I feel like I could do with having 4 arms!
