About Gavurin


Gavurin is a Newcastle upon Tyne based IT consultancy developing integrated software solutions, with a focus on delivering Business Intelligence.

We offer a wide-ranging portfolio of data-related products and services to enable organisations to be truly self-sufficient in the production of easily understood and visually impactful data analysis. Our technical team is comprised of data scientists, software engineers, and mathematicians. Through this combination of skills, Gavurin are able to deliver solutions to clients which not only embrace the strengths of each discipline, but seize opportunities only available to those who can see the full range of the options.

Our software is developed according to established, mature, robust processes which adhere to industry best practices. We are Microsoft Silver Partners, and all of our software developers are Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCP).

As a company, we pride ourselves on our professionalism and proven track record of delivering for some of the world’s largest businesses.

We are members of Dynamo North East which aims to grow the North East IT economy through collaboration, innovation and skills.

Our team is also actively involved in the STEM Ambassador and North East Ambitions programme, helping to promote STEM subjects to the next generation. 



Gavurin was founded in 2007 but its origins can be traced to a ground-breaking piece of economics research that began at Newcastle University in the 1990s. It was here that we decided to be different economists and, instead of building an economic model, we used micro data.


By utilising your data more effectively, you can begin to make better business decisions. Take the first step and get in touch today – we’d love to help.

Jonathan returned to his native North East in early 2018, having spent the previous 10 years with Sainsbury’s where he led a large team of spatial analysts. By gaining first-hand insight, he was able to recognise the value that data can deliver to an organisation. This ensures Jonathan gets the very best out of our people and always deliver the best possible outcome for our clients.

Chief Morale Officer

This is the first company that Marvin has been involved with and although the treats leave something to be desired at times, he is enjoying the challenge of keeping the hard-working team in good mental and physical shape. He is Paul’s companion and they go pretty much everywhere together!


Our Offices

We are based in The Racquets Court – a brand new tech hub in Newcastle city centre.

In 2015 the founders of Gavurin made it their mission to create a space where tech businesses could work together and inspire one another. It had always been challenging to find an office space which could keep up with the work we do. We are now fortunate to work out of the only workspace connected to the Stellium Network.

The renovation work began in early 2018 and was completed by November 2018. The building officially opened in May 2019 and is now home to several businesses and still growing.
