Company

ON Lab started in 2013 after one of the founders decided to pursue a career change. Three individuals that shared (and share to this day) the same vision of what work is and what work means set sail to start their own company.

It all started with an idea. Not an idea of a product or a service, but of a team. In our first meeting as a team, we drafted our constitution. On a big sheet of paper, in silence, each of us drew symbols that represented what we wanted and what we didn’t want. All sorts of things came up: from giving talks, to traveling, to having a big team of people working with us, to making big loads of money, to solving problems that matter, and much more. That was years ago. And of course, things change. Context changes, our lives change, and our priorities and desires change.

So years later we drafted our second version of our constitution. Our WHY. We tried to express with words the reason we put so much energy into this company. We came up with this:

“We believe in the pursuit of happiness, by creating a dream team that creates with passion, purpose and joy, beautiful software.”

We are doing this to be happy and fulfilled by the work we do. Yes, we want to make money. But that’s not the reason we’ve been working hard to create our own company. We’re in the tech business. We are capable people. We could be making good money somewhere else, getting our salaries deposited to our bank accounts the same day every month. We are here because work takes up, usually, one-third of the time of an adult’s life. Work shapes us. So we want to shape our work, too; we want to be the designers of our lives to a greater extent. And have a great time doing it.

Some two years went by until we realized that our WHY was not fully expressing the totality of the reason why ON Lab exists. So we changed it.

“We believe in the pursuit of happiness through the construction of freedom, by building a team that creates with passion, joy and intelligence brilliant solutions to challenges that matter.”

It’s a bit longer than the first one. But this change reflects a very important part of our identity: the “freedom” part. ON Lab is not about 9-to-5, 30-minute lunch breaks and “there’s no other way”. ON Lab is about objectives and accomplishing those objectives in freedom. In freedom of space. In freedom of the HOW. And applying this concept from the small things to the big things. From a task in a project to the company itself.

If you share our beliefs, we’d love to work with you.

– The founders.

"Working with Nico & Rafael at ON Lab has absolutely been my best experience collaborating with developers. They're always a pleasure to work with - sharp, thoughtful, and responsive. They take the time to explain everything and really want our system to work well, without ever confusing any of my team or making us feel like we can't understand their work; this has been incredibly refreshing for us as a company. I would recommend them to anybody!"

"Choosing ON Lab to create my website was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Nico is an incredible developer who worked with me every step of the way to help me create a website that is even better than what I had in mind. I am incredibly pleased with the final product. Beyond being impressed with the actual work that ON Lab did for me, I was and continue to be impressed with the customer service that Nico offers. Any time I have a question, problem, or want to make a change to the site, Nico has me taken care of within 24 hours. It is rare to find people who are as technically gifted as Nico who are also good at communicating and dealing with people. Nico is the whole package. If you are debating whether or not do work with ON Lab, I urge you to do it. I would recommend them to anyone. As a matter of fact, I have been recommending them to everyone, including my own parents who also decided to have ON Lab do their site and are just as pleased with them as I am. I am confident that there is nobody who develops websites better than ON Lab and would give them 11/10, five stars. Thank you Nico, thank you ON Lab, y'all rock!!"

Shopify

We’ve been helping Shopify owners do more with their online storefront. From offering product customizations to improving UX to building tailored online try-ons, we’ve acquired knowledge and experience in this fast-growing e-commerce platform.

Now we’re developing apps that offer out-of-the-box features that integrate all the experience we’ve acquired over the years. But we want to grow our portfolio of apps faster– that’s why we’re offering a great deal. We will develop an app for you at no cost.

Your app

If you have an idea for an app that could elevate your work, boost performance, simplify a process, improve usability, or just make things prettier, let us know. We’ll work with you on building it for free.

We only ask for one thing: your app should be able to help other people too.

Submit a proposal

Send us a short description of your app idea, including a clear statement of what problem it solves. If you’ve tried other apps in an attempt to solve the same problem, let us know which apps those were and why they didn’t work for you.

"We've worked with the ON Lab team to create enriched experiences in different events we organize. They allowed us to give life to our ideas, and create initiatives through the use of technology with tools we didn't believe it was passible to apply to cultural and brand events."

FAQ

What’s the best way to contact you?

Definitely email. Send us an email at on-lab@on-lab.com or use the contact form and we’ll get back to you.

How much does a website cost?

The cost of developing a website varies a lot depending on what needs to be built, so we prefer discussing ideas and needs either face-to-face or through videochat. That way we can better understand what needs to be built so we can provide you with a clear estimate.

Do you partner up with entrepreneurs to work on projects?

We do. But is not something we do too often. We keep a balance between the projects we work as a provider and the projects we work as partners. If you think you’re onto something interesting and you’re looking for tech acceleration, contact us and we can discuss it.

Can I trust you with my ideas?

As a company, we encourage our customers to discuss all ideas freely with other people. We believe (as do many others) that execution is what it’s all really about. But we respect opinions. So we can promise not to mention your idea to others, and we are open to signing an NDA with you if needed.
