Making a Difference
Our mission is to impact the world in a smart and meaningful way through the companies that we build.
Literally steps away from dozens of shops and restaurants, we are located in the heart of Old Town Pasadena, California.
Cool Office Space
No cubicles! Our office is a wide open, airy, and inviting space that inspires a sense of community and respect.
Food + Drink = Energy
A wide selection of free beverages, subsidized lunches, Monday morning bagels, 3pm snacks, and occasional office-wide lunches. We believe good
food makes for happy workers.
Learn new skills, stay current with industry trends, collaborate, and attend interesting and relevant lectures.
Celebrations, contests, and social gatherings are often regarded by employees as some of our most memorable events.
More reasons why working here is different from anywhere else:
- Be one of the first. Enjoy the excitement of getting in on the ground floor.
- It's all about you. We encourage feedback and suggestions from all employees.
- Recharge. Blow off steam in our game room or visit our quiet room for a time out.
- Co-habitating companies. Leverage the talent and expertise from our entire community.
- Green initiatives. Alternative transportation and battery recycling programs, plus more.
"I love being in a work environment that celebrates different professional disciplines and,
frankly, all kinds of brains. Solar engineers working
side-by-side with front-end UX designers, traffic analysts seated next to digital artists."
"It's a workplace but it feels like a family. People are too busy innovating and trying
to change the world to worry about titles. We're a team."
"Idealab's culture is inspiring and energetic. I get a feeling of being part of
something 'big and important' by working here."
"Idealab culture is spirited. Innovative minds work at Idealab.
Idealab people know how to balance work and amusement. On Halloween, holidays and some special
Friday evenings, you can see how cool this place — where intellectual minds work together — can be."
"Interesting people with great skills working on very exciting projects. You never hear what someone else
is working on and say to yourself, 'That sounds boring.'"
"I was surprised by the respect people have for each other's ideas and contributions,
the fun they have collaborating and working together, and the relationships people share in and out of the office."
"If you excel at what you do, want to work hard, be challenged, get recognized for your contributions and be a part
of something meaningful (all while being encouraged to maintain a work/home life balance!), this is the place."
"Idealab is a place where there are no little people. Everyone gets visibility; everyone makes an impact;
and everyone rises with the tides. At the end, we are just a bunch of entrepreneurially-charged people convinced that we can change the world."
"The atmosphere reminds me of college in that I frequently find myself huddled in a room with friends...one person running the white board, another running the projector...as we work together to solve a problem
in the most intelligent and efficient way possible."
"Idealab hosts events like social hours and movie days...it's never a dull moment here!
I love that everyone works elbow to elbow, and that you can meet new people everyday at the coffee machine or the lunch line."
