About Teamscope

Origins
Teamscope was born on May 2, 2013, in Santiago, Chile, from a drawing on a table.

The spark was a conversation between Diego, our CEO, and a young emergency medicine doctor. This young doctor shared with Diego the frustrations he faced when collecting research data in a hectic environment, with an old department computer and slow or no internet.

If this doctor was not alone and capturing research data can be such a pain, something needed to be done.
Within a few days from that drawing, Diego and Rodolfo, our CTO, started working on the first prototype of our data collection app.

Since then, we have supported hundreds of research teams.

From Wajir, Kenya...
To Kent, England...and around the world.
We envision a world where professionals across disciplines are inspired to do and love research. Because we need more research to save lives, fight climate change and make our world a better place.

What we stand for

Empathy guides our way.

The easiest way to help our users is put ourselves in their shoes and to build something that before anything else: is simple and easy to use. When help is needed we go all in.

Specific and clear communication.

Proper communication etiquette makes us work more efficiently, get work done faster and build long-lasting relationships with our users. Too much time can be lost in a message which is lost in interpretation, on the contrary, fluid collaboration requires accurate language.

Ownership of results.

The ball is always in our court; we own our work and the results of our team. Our achievements are the results of what we can do as a team, and there is no limit to how far we can strive for our ambitions.

Good humor is our secret sauce.

Humor is what tickles our neurons and gets them fired up and ready for grand challenges. We think that people should feel free to be themselves, bring to work their good and bad jokes and feel relaxed and comfortable.
