We partner with founders and senior leaders to build their teams at each stage of their scaling journey.
We’re taking fast-paced organisations on transformational scaling journeys.
Scale without breaking
The Lab17 designs and delivers world class talent acquisition processes to help our partners scale without breaking. Our embedded model puts us in-house with our partners to understand their unique challenges and design tailored solutions.
We are humans
We are humans not employees, and work is a part of life, not separate to it. When we let the two co-exist, we perform at our best. This mindset guides our approach to flexibility, how we work together and the experiences we create as a team.
We support our Labonauts to determine the working arrangements that suit them best, whether from home, a co-working office space or your preferred location. We use a common sense approach to managing timezone expectations and your work hours.
We’re connected by travel
We travel for in person connection, learning and making an impact on the world around us. Our team is spread across a few locations so we make sure to take advantage of opportunities to come together and explore new parts of the world.
We use rituals to drive performance
We coordinate ourselves with weekly rituals to drive high performance and accountability. This ensures we are swimming in the same direction, delivering exceptional results for our partners and developing professionally.
We set you up for success
We will set you up with a laptop, accessories and $750 allowance for your home office setup.
The art and science of what we do.
We are Product Managers of our craft, always seeking to test, measure, validate and iterate. We bring a human approach to our work, adding value by understanding the people and challenges, unique to the organisations we work with.
Teams win championships.
A winning team over a team of winners.
Individual talent can create moments of brilliance but the collective strength of a team can consistently perform the things that matter and overcome individual limitations.
The best today is not the best tomorrow.
We are life-long students – humble, hungry, and curious to grow. We seek recognition from those who matter, and look after ourselves personally to be able to deliver greatness professionally.

- Rising to the occasion

We light the way
Leaders not only keep it human and set the standard, but light the way for others to follow suit. It shows up through things like:

Take the driver’s seat and tell us where you want to go. We offer quarterly learning, coaching and career planning and course fee support to help you get there.
Great work comes from you, not your location. Use our home-office stipend to set up your preferred work location.
