Who are The Lab17?

Hey folks!

We’re Nick Ingall and Simon Bernardino – the founders of The Lab17. We’ve worked together over the years at companies such as Spotify, Atlassian, and SafetyCulture, building their teams through significant periods of growth.

We emerged (slightly battle scarred), wondering how we could break the mould of conventional recruitment. How could we help scaling businesses who don’t have the internal ‘people’ capabilities?

Enter, The Lab17!

We’re now a team of Talent experts (the Labonauts), who embed ourselves in growing organisations to build and develop incredible teams. We apply a product lens to how we think and work – we validate, iterate and use data to measure success.

Being human is at the forefront of everything we do – we’re candidate focused, and people obsessed.
