Reach Labs - Who We Are

Reach Labs is a pioneer in a new frontier of technology. Born out of MIT, incubated in YC, and developed in an "office space" that was the oven of a cookie factory, we are a group of curious, passionate, and creative problem solvers, and we approach our work with vigor and humility. We have recently moved to a beautiful and freshly renovated office, but are taking the startup mentality with us- decisions are made quickly, meetings and politics are kept to a minimum, and everyone here does high visibility work that has considerable influence on our product and company.

As a result, we highly value diversity at our company in not only professional capabilities and experience, but also in personal interests, musical tastes, and walks of life. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Our new office has close access to MacArthur BART, Public and Private Bus Routes, walking access to Emeryville restaurants, gyms and groceries, and ample bike parking and personal storage for employees. We are currently following a flex office use, with onsite and remote employees following CDC health guidelines.
