Modeling ourselves after the 1904 World’s Fair, which brought innovation to the region, 1904labs is seeking top technical talent in St. Louis to bring innovation and creativity to our clients.

Our clients consist of Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies.

  • Dress Code - we don't have one


While we are in the midst of the Covid pandemic our primary work location is our home offices.  Once this is behind us, we will return to our normal hybrid model of working from the office and from home.  For this reason we still prefer local candidates.  While we would prefer local candidates your current location is not the most important factor; please help us understand why you would like to call St. Louis home if you would be relocating.
