About us 

Idea Drop is a London-based scale-up helping organisations everywhere capture and action the best ideas from their people.

  • Help integrate and improve our internal operations tech stack – we run on Slack, Trello, Pipedrive, Intercom, Jira and others.

  • A real sense of urgency tempered by the ability to keep calm under pressure.
