About Us

We believe that now is a critical time to address the sustainability and affordability of the spaces we depend on to live, work, and play. Solving these challenges at a global scale requires better tools for the people creating our spaces. Outer Labs brings modern human-centric design together with the latest technology to radically improve the way real estate, architecture, and construction professionals make decisions. 

Some questions we find ourselves asking: ​How can we help an architect explore a thousand ideas in the time it currently takes to explore one? How can software help us optimize the quality of spaces for humans while reducing the cost and resources required to build?​ How do encourage reusable solutions that can be manufactured more sustainably and efficiently? 

Answers to these questions require expertise in design and engineering that comes from every level of our company. This is why we’ve invested deeply in building a culture that empowers its employees to do great work and directly shape the future of its products. We want smart, creative, and intent individuals to be part of our core team. Are you in?
