About Us

DB Gurus was established in 2006 by Jon and Jarrod at their office in Austinmer.

The software house has grown steadily since then and we have completed many projects for over 250 Clients (see portfolio). These clients include large and small organisations spanning a range of industries and sectors.

The projects have been extremely varied too. We have developed Apps, Web based platforms, Microsoft Access applications, performed database conversions, integrations and designed large and complex database projects, some of which have gone over multiple sites and have taken a number of years.

We specialise mainly with Microsoft technologies such as Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server, .NET and C#, Report Writer and Crystal Reports. From an App perspective we use Swift 2 for iOS, and Java for Android.

Our philosophy has always been to provide high quality, professional database solutions that are simple to use and reliable through the use of tight processes, reusable tools and code, with stringent quality assurance.

Our Values


We pride ourselves in being professional in everything we do.


We do our utmost to deliver what we promise in a timely manner.


We always try to treat people with respect, both within and outside of our organisation.
