Mission: 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 ...
I have been working at 1904Labs full-time (More than a year)
Innovation Hours (time to work on our own innovation projects, education, volunteer, etc.).
Leadership values the employee as a whole.
EXCELLENT Work/Life Balance
A great balance of Trust & Freedom with Order & Expectations.
Flexible hours and fair work from home policies.
True commitment and support to community involvement.
Working on the latest and greatest tech stacks.
Excellent, fun team culture.
Appreciated "extras": Snacks, 3d Printer, Personal growth budget, Cortex/CIC Benefits, etc.
Employees have influence over culture and policies (team buy-in, within constraints).
Company encourages and provides resources for one's own growth.
Positive/peaceful atmosphere without feeling slow.
Lot's of opportunities to step up and learn something new or practice a technique or skill that is beyond the daily client work (keeps things fresh).
I make a difference / The work I do matters, and is appreciated (meaningful).
1904labs does not (at the time of writing this review) make any of its own products - they are in client services. Therefore:
- Ownership over the product you create varies based on client
- Paid Time Off is on par or slightly better than other client services, but may be less than non-client services
*We are in a fortunate in that we choose to work with clients that share our core work values. Meaning, we get to work with clients who are in alignment with agile principles and are creating/innovating new solutions (i.e. we're not servicing old legacy applications). Therefore, although the work will vary between clients, the style and expectations across client teams is very similar and that works greatly to our benefit.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work! We look forward to maintaining our excellent culture as we continue to grow. Continue hiring great people!
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at 1904Labs (Saint Louis, MO) in December 2017.
1. HR Call, 2. Practice Lead Call, 3. In person interview of 3 stages consisting of a personality assessment ( relaxed Q&A), a presentation of a personal project or a more difficult problem statement given 2 days in advance, and a live coding problem with 45 minutes to solve which varies depending on perceived skill level/need.
