A different approach for better results


The 1904labs difference

Our goal is simple. Be the best outsourced partner to build cloud-based software and data solutions. We achieve this by being a partner that is easy to work with, provides innovative start-up minded people and with the right experience to deliver excellent results in our chosen areas of focus.

We have purposely located ourselves in the CIC@CET building within the Cortex district of St. Louis, a well-established startup ecosystem – incubating a culture that puts startup minds at the forefront of our priorities. We draw on that ecosystem which is flush with expertise, talent, and innovation to address some of the toughest problems companies face.

When it comes to our team members, our goal is simple – we want to be the best, most fulfilling place to work. A place where our people and their opinions are valued, collaboration and teamwork is the norm, and everyone is encouraged to contribute new ideas to make things better. And of course a great work environment with competitive compensation and benefits.


Core Beliefs

As the driving force of everything we do at 1904labs, our Core Beliefs are
mounted in our office as a reminder of why we come in to work everyday. 


Modern, cloud-native software

Today, software must scale in various cloud environments and meet different business requirements. We value modern, cloud-native architectural tools and scalable software. We think software must be built from the beginning with the cloud in mind.

Clients are our cornerstone

We are committed to providing our clients a level of service that exceeds their expectations. As such, we will only provide services in alignment with our areas of expertise. We will deliver all work at the highest level of quality possible.


Our team members and culture are our foundation

Our goal is to hire innovative, courageous, intensely curious and team-minded people. We value people skills and technical skills equally. As such, we are committed to providing each team member with opportunities that will allow them to develop their people and technical skills while working at 1904labs. We will foster a company culture that encourages team members to collaborate effectively with each other and be open to learning from each other.

Human-centered design and agile development

Technology is important, but we recognize that software is created by and for people. We use Human-Centered Design in everything we do to ensure we make the right decisions and create the best designs. We use Agile Development practices such as Scrum, Kanban, and XP when appropriate to deliver intuitive and effective software and data solutions.


Work/life balance

We understand that our team members work so that they can live and not the other way around. We are committed to our team members having an appropriate balance between work and personal commitments. Our goal is to do work for our clients that aligns with our areas of focus and is deliverable with reasonable effort by our team members.
