The team behind Guidecentral are based in Dogpatch Labs in Dublin, but the developers originally hail from Argentina and Spain. The team is headed by former Google and Youtube employee Gaston Irigayen. They decided to choose Dublin as the location to develop Guidecentral as the start up industry here is continuously growing. Dublin also serves as a great base for access to the European market whilst still been influenced by changes in the US tech scene, which is majorly important given that 70% of Guidecentral users are based there.
