Company Information

Who are Rubberdesk?

Rubberdesk is the product of lots of hard work and late nights by its founders Jim Groves, CEO and David Dale, CTO.

Prior to Rubberdesk, Jim worked for 20 years in investment banking, in a range of roles that transformed broking from the traditional high touch model to low touch and straight through processing.

Between David’s technical skill and keen eye for design, and Jim’s experience transforming traditional marketplaces they have brought Rubberdesk to life to disrupt the flexible office space market.
