Our Story

Big Sofa Technologies is a technology-driven consultancy that is passionate about building the next generation of consumer intelligence and data. Through our industry-leading video-technology system, we bring to life authentic human behaviors and experiences for the world’s leading brands.

Our history began with carrying an inflatable sofa around the streets of London and asking people to share their stories, on video, with no predetermined set of questions or responses. Just a conversation about what mattered in their lives.

Since the days of an inflatable sofa, we’ve built technology and innovative approaches that stand at the intersection of data and empathy – illuminating trends, behaviors, experiences and insights that would otherwise go undetected. With our video technology, brands have gained access to data, analytics, and insights at scale which are more authentic and valuable – the next frontier of consumer intelligence.

What we believe

A Real-Life Perspective.

At our core, we exist to highlight true human behavior from the spaces & places it naturally occurs — and our methodologies are developed to highlight the true human experience.

Technology Enhances Reality

When our technology intersects with data from real consumer lives, we open a window into insights that more authentic and valuable than other research methods could ever offer.

Better Data In, Better Insights Out

Authentic video data reveals what people do, not just what they say they do. It means we can illuminate trends, behaviors, and insights that would otherwise go undetected.

Now & Next

We are hellbent on providing the most valuable consumer intelligence platform today. And, we believe that’s impossible to do without thinking about what’s next. We are constantly improving and expanding our system’s capabilities.

Who we are

Integrity Led

Integrity is the defining quality of our people and our work. Whether it’s our contribution to corporate social responsibility and research, or our relationships with our clients and our employees, we strive to act truthfully and authentically. We’re unafraid to meet life with a high standard of ethics.

Self-improvers

We believe in the importance of continuous improvement and pushing the boundaries of the norm. Curiosity is at the forefront of our business and we strive to improve our product, our people, and our technology.

Future Shapers

Innovation is hardwired into our products and our people. As pioneers in video technology and analytics, we are shaping the next frontier of consumer intelligence, putting human experience and behavior at the heart of businesses and brands.

Tech Enthusiasts

We are fascinated by what technology and human endeavor can achieve. We build and improve our technology to aggregate human diversity in a way that uncovers its shared patterns while doing justice to its heterogeneity. We combine the best of human and machine intelligence to deliver new data streams and better solutions to our client’s business needs.
