What we offer at labworks.io
We believe in creating a great place to work where people are genuinely excited to come into work.
We believe in investing in people and helping them to grow and develop new skills.
We believe in having a compassionate and welcoming company culture where everybody is free to be themselves.
We believe in making sure our team are fairly rewarded for their work.
We believe that voice is going to be huge and that we provide an unrivalled opportunity to get early experience in this field.
We’re a small start-up and whilst there’s a lot of work to be done, we make sure that we keep a good work-life balance.
We are based in a shared workspace in Farringdon, London and would expect you to be able to work from the office most of the time, but working from home sometimes is also encouraged and working hours can be flexible.
