Warning: Mixed gender work place!

LeafLabs is always looking for creative and gutsy people to help us reinvent the smartphone, solve the brain, and tackle new projects.



LeafLabs was founded in 2009 by a group of friends from MIT on the premise that science happens not just in shiny labs, but also on cluttered workbenches in musty basements everywhere.

We're a small, eclectic team with a variety of backgrounds and skill sets, but we all love solving hard problems and building cool stuff. We pride ourselves on our flat organization structure, the ethics and quality of our work, and the intelligence, expertise, and culture of our team. We have worked with companies ranging from Google and Facebook, to small startups, to government organizations like the NIH and DARPA. At LeafLabs you'll have unmatched input and self-determination on your projects and the work that you do. We will never work on destructive military or financial applications, preferring to work on projects and research that directly betters humanity. The working environment at LeafLabs is friendly and flexible, and we strive to support good work/life balance for everyone on our team.

At LeafLabs you will be working as part of a highly collaborative and tightly knit group. Our offices are located at the Industry Lab co-working space in the heart of Inman Square (Cambridge, MA).  Employee growth and education is an important part of LeafLabs culture, whether it is professional development to expand our collective knowledge or an art installation at Firefly. What’s the point of having a company if we can’t do cool stuff?  

If you’re passionate about what we do and think you would be a good fit and would like to apply for the jobs listed below please send a resume + cover letter to jobs@leaflabs.com.

Why Work at LeafLabs?

  • The opportunity to influence cutting edge technology

  • Competitive compensation and benefits 

  • Flexible work hours

  • Community oriented work environment at Industry Lab in Cambridge, MA

  • Unending adventure and excitement

We look forward to hearing from you!
