Hello, we're Focused Labs

At Focused Labs we take a unique approach to developing high-quality, business focused, software. We believe that digital products can and should be built to evolve with your business. Our approach is structured around delivering products to market fast, testing with real customers, and iterating based on their feedback.

Why Work with Us?

We love to write code, and if you do too, you will love Focused Labs. Everything we do from our sustainable pace to minimal meetings is designed to optimize your time in front of an editor writing software! Focused is truly a place to grow or hone your software craft - you could see 3-5 clients in a year and each one presents things to learn.

An Insider's view of Focused Labs

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I think there's actually a deeper question, what is the balance between work, life, and time to be creative. When you spend all your time hacking away at a backlog you're not learning. At Focused we want you to have creative time, and time with your family/friends. That's why we offer Idea Hours and have a strong culture of 8 hour days, no more!

Austin

CEO

What does your typical day look like?

Focused is an environment where coding is a social exercise and learning is a continuous process. We work together by pairing and speaking openly. We find programming to be a creative process, one that is most effective when fingers are on a keyboard, not a meeting room. By writing code all day, every day, we learn and deliver together.

Luke

Programmer Extraordinaire

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

We have a program called Idea Hours. Idea Hours are accumulated like vacation and can be used to attend conferences, build an app, try a new language, or anything else. If you have an idea and a need a team, use those idea hours to get a few folks working together.
