Who are

Codec is a cultural intelligence platform. We apply science to culture using AI-driven analysis of thousands of millions of digital content engagements online to group mass audiences into communities, linked by shared leaders, interests, and identity. To help brands move away from mass reach, demographic and product based segmentation.

Our core beliefs are that brands of the future are community driven, culturally relevant and passion led. Post COVID, it’s never been so important for brands to be relevant and empathetic to grow. We help them do this by putting cultural intelligence at their heart.

Brands work with us in three ways:

    • Insights: Bringing existing brand communities to life
    • Drive Growth: Discovering and unlocking new, untapped communities for brands
    • Business transformation: Putting cultural insights at the centre of decisions (NPD, M&A and marketing)

We are lucky to work with leading brand groups including Unilever, L’Oreal, P&G and more.

Since the beginning of the year, we’ve been reframing perceptions of the business and our offering to market, shifting from a platform dependent business, to one that is a strategic partner to CMO’s using our data & platform for a jumping off point for a suite of strategic services. 

We have restructured the team to capitalise on the growth opportunity we have in-market, organising them into two entrepreneurial scrums, each with New Business, Strategy, and Client Services; supported by Marketing, PDT (Product, Design & Technology) and the Leadership team. The re-structure has been successful, and we have won multiple new, transformative accounts. To continue with this success, we now require another member of our Business Development team to sit across both scrums, there will also be opportunities to work with the Leadership team, and interface with PDT.
