We're Hiring!

Hurling through space

Helio is made by ZURB. Helio allows you to test prototypes, screens, and design ideas with ease and learn from real people in minutes. You can create feedback loops with your audience, make decisions more quickly, and validate product concepts before investing time into engineering or design.

  • Our robust audiences remove the difficulty and strain of recruiting participants for your tests and surveys.
  • Our test questions make it incredibly easy to collect the right type of feedback from your work.
  • Our realtime-reporting allows you to collect and filter qualitative and quantitative data instantly.

Helio was born from the need to learn from users in a quick and fast way. It was painful to invite people to review design work and have half the people not show up.

Our team possesses the unique ability to see the big picture while being able to dive into the code to make things pixel perfect. We ask questions, roll up our sleeves, and make things happen!

Helio Growth Marketer

Be a part of something AMAZING!

After years of supporting the biggest brands in Silicon Valley and beyond, such as Mozilla, Facebook, and Hulu, we saw a need in the marketplace that has yet to be fully realized. The need for brands to reach people similar to their customers based on behavior and life experience. After three years of development, we released Helio, a customer testing and survey platform that provides access to over 850,000 participants.

Helio allows brands to collect qualitative and quantitative answers from targeted audiences, enabling creative decisions to be made quickly and affordably.
