Job Description

About Us

Just as the 1904 World’s Fair brought innovation to St. Louis, 1904labs inspires innovation in new and exciting ways by bridging gaps between the talent community and clients who have cutting edge needs.

We provide our team members with challenging and rewarding work, competitive compensation and the opportunity to openly pursue their own individual startup ideas during the work day. We challenge the conventional norms by encouraging our employees to innovate their own product ideas during collaboration times, separate from our client work.

At 1904labs, we are agile and innovative technologists. Cutting edge technologies don’t scare us, they fuel our fire

  • Innovation Hours - Ten percent (10%) of our work week is set aside to work on our own product ideas in a highly collaborative and supportive environment. The best part: The IP remains your own.  We are a high-growth culture and we know that when we help people focus on personal and professional growth, collectively, we can achieve great things.
