About Detroit Labs

Detroit Labs was founded in 2011 and has built some of the most popular apps for iPhone and Android. We’re always taking on new projects in mobile and opportunities in emerging technologies. And our passion for people and teams extends to our Apprenticeship program, through which we educate and help guide the careers of the next generation of software developers, and our OnSite business unit which extends our expertise, skill, and passion outside of our office to our client sites. Detroit Labs has over 100 employees, has been profitable and has responsibly grown every year of our existence, and has offices in Detroit and Ann Arbor.

We’re passionate about building technology like mobile apps. We’re devoted to building great teams, too. We’re ambitious, friendly, dedicated, and we’re hiring!

Interested in our OnSite program, where you’ll be integrated with a client team and become a piece of the development of their software and teams? Learn more and apply for OnSite.

Join our team

Be Autonomous

In other words, we’re free of kings and micromanagers. Our team members are self-directed and own their projects. We trust everyone to get their work done, no matter how they choose to get there.

Build Diverse Projects

We’ve created beautiful apps for clients ranging from small startups to Fortune 50 companies--many of them local to Detroit. You get to work with emerging technologies to solve a variety of challenging problems.

Work With Top-notch People

If it hasn’t been said already: we value our people. Detroit Labs is filled with the smartest, most self-motivated, creative individuals, so that you never stop learning and building. Great people make for a great culture.

Be the Change

Established only in 2011, Detroit Labs is still a young company. We care deeply about the caliber of people we bring on because each one helps shape who we are. You influence the direction we take.

Do Great Things

We develop mobile apps, but we’re also makers (and builders, authors, artists, and hackers). On any given day, you could be building a robot in our hardware lab, or huddled over an app that’ll be touched by thousands of users. We take joy in constant creation.


Detroit Labs sponsors qualified applicants for work visas. You will have to provide documentation that establishes your identity and work authorization upon acceptance of an offer and also for reverification purposes, if required.
