A bit about us

Old St Labs was born when Co-founders Mark Perera and Alex Short got fed up with how relationships between businesses were managed.

In the age of cloud computing and rapid technological advances, they could not understand how so many inefficiencies existed within business relationships. With consumer products moving forward at the rate of knots why had business tools got stuck in the 90’s? They had to do something about it.

Old Street Labs has evolved into a dynamic team of specialists in technology, innovation, design, marketing, procurement and finance.

Working with our customers, ranging from tech giants to the leading lights of the FTSE 100 and Fortune 500, we are redefining commercial relationships and changing the way people think about enterprise software.

How we work

 

We aspire to create a friendly, highly productive environment where people can get their work done, hone their craft and learn new skills. We've gone to great lengths to develop a transparent and inclusive company culture where your ideas will not only be heard, they'll be acted on.

Old Street Labs has a flat organisational structure. Founders, coders and marketing interns all share the same open planned office space. The flow of ideas between team members is encouraged and facilitated at all levels. Our team tackles challenges collectively and as a result, we achieve a lot in very little time. Perhaps some this can be attributed to the free beer in our office.

 
 

Where we work

Old Street Labs is headquartered on the banks of the River Thames in London, but we operate a truly global team. As well as our offices in London, New York and Montreal, we currently have team members working in San Sebastian and Yorkshire.  We understand that the best talent may not live where we live and that great work doesn't have to take place within the confines of our office. As a response to this, we offer our team members the flexibility to work from where they will be most productive. 

 

Work with us

To ensure we're equipped to meet every challenge our business throws at us, we're building a diverse team of world-class designers, web and mobile developers, marketers, project managers, and quality assurance folks. Below you'll find the roles we're currently hiring for. These job descriptions are by no means final. The nature of our business requires flexibility and the ability to think above all else. We're much more interested in how you process ideas than what's written on your CV.
