We have a competency/capability hiring model and do not opportunistically bring people into the organization on a project basis. Our process is continuous and passionate bout people. The goal is simple: find the absolute best.


Lab49’s Java projects center around designing and building server-side applications which encapsulate the workflow, processing, and business logic of our clients’ core trading business.

These may be systems to manage the pricing of large portfolios of instruments; service-oriented architectures for building truly decoupled distributed systems, or data grid implementations for large-scale data-intensive applications.
