Culture at 1904labs

Empowering our teams to achieve autonomy, mastery, and purpose

At 1904labs we know and respect the value of our team members, which is why we’ve created a culture that allows all our employees to thrive, grow and most importantly, feel fulfilled and part of something greater.

An enjoyable working environment for our team and clients

The success and happiness of our team is equally important to us as it is to our clients.

Our mission for all employees is to ensure they understand how valuable they are by ensuring inclusion. We provide a wide range of practices and benefits that let them unlock their creative, technical, and professional potential – including personal passions. For this reason we allow our teams to spend 10% of their time to explore their interests or further develop their professional careers thru innovation time.

Our location in the Cortex district gives our teams and clients the ability to collaborate with other entrepreneurs to help manifest their passions.

Great Working Environment

We work hard and play hard. From snacks in the office and the CIC cafe, to ping pong, foosball, and games in the lounge, we pride ourselves on being a great place to work! Regular speakers plus lunch-and-learn sessions help broaden your horizons. Our team members are not only given the opportunity to participate; they are given a forum to lead these learning sessions as well.

Innovation Hours

Exploring passions makes employees more productive, happier and well rounded – all while fostering individual ideas. That’s why we allow 10% of your time to be devoted to innovation hours. This time can be used to foster individual ideas, personal projects, startup ideas, improve an open source tool or for career advancement self-education. All during traditional working hours.

Career Development

We aren’t just employers – we’re career partners. We help you build your career along the path that fits your passions. We have regular one-on-one sessions and work with you to develop a skills-based track that lets you grow your career along the path to meet your professional objectives.

Competitive Benefits

Life is busy, and work is only one piece of it. That’s why we believe in compensating our employees competitively while offering flexible hours – allowing you to live a productive and healthy life outside of work. We also surround our employees with cutting-edge technology in a collaborative space.
