We care more about getting research right because we're researchers, too.


Aurelius is the platform we wish we had 20 years ago.

For over 20 years, we've been making and improving digital products and services in companies ranging from Fortune 100s to startups. We get research because we walk in your shoes every day.

Designing and creating digital experiences taught us one very important thing.

Success depends on making the smartest data-driven decisions. But that's only possible if you can go from research to insight to influence faster — and with less hassle.

That's why we made Aurelius for researchers like you.

Your research should drive the most important decisions in your company. But you're not alone if you've ever thought it's just too hard. Too complicated and too time-consuming.

Aurelius is changing that with the tool built by researchers, for researchers.

It's the tool we needed ourselves: a platform to tag, analyze, search and share research all in one place — powerfully, but with none of the complexities that make most tools more work than they're worth.

And we're staying true to that singular purpose by listening to and evolving Aurelius with researchers like you.

Reach out at any time and tell us what you need. We're here to make your research simpler, faster and more streamlined.

Made By Researchers, For Researchers

UX and research is part of who we are. We’ve been working in the space for over 15 years!

We make it a point to give back to and support the UX and research community in several ways like our popular podcast and speaking at several conferences.

You can also keep up with some of our thoughts and writings on UX, research and company updates on our blog.

We're Honored

Tech Crunch

Aurelius was selected as a TC Top Pick at TechCrunch Disrupt 2020

We've also been featured in several publications, like the Forrester report about High Impact Research.

Lean, Mostly Bootstrapped and Proud

Aurelius is a mostly bootstrapped company.

We don’t have a board or committee that dictates what happens with our product or our company.

This is hugely beneficial to you because:

  1. Your feedback directly impacts what we build

  2. We're only successful if you are - we're in this together

  3. You get quick, direct support from the same people who built the product and have been in your shoes doing UX work for a long time

  4. When you support Aurelius, you're supporting real people and real families working hard to help make your job faster and easier
