About Labster

At Labster we are dedicated to empowering the next generation of scientists to change the world. Our goal is to develop fully interactive software that makes learning both engaging and effective, and to make it accessible to as many students as possible. We are partnering with major publishers and other EdTech companies and just recently announced our partnership with Google.

We govern ourselves by using a flat-hierarchy system called Holacracy that is focused on roles, collaboration and distributed leadership. We believe in flexible work hours and a good work-life balance, and while we love to achieve great things via concentrated work, it’s incredibly important for us to have happy and engaged team members.

In Bali we are a team of approximately 30 software developers grouped into several circles and sub-circles. Some of the technologies we are currently working on include but are not limited to: VR, building complex game/simulation editing tools and an advanced learning analytics dashboard, as well as scaling our DevOps server architecture to reach millions of students. To achieve our goals, our stack includes C#, Unity3D, Python, AWS etc.
