Our Culture at RTS Labs

At RTS Labs, you will find a hard-working but casual workplace with no crap, few meetings, and a get-it done philosophy.

There are no closed doors, and no scheduled office hours. Instead, we are a self-managed and self motivated team that always looks for new chances to improve our efficiency.

We work hard for our clients and for ourselves, and that means we expect a lot out of our employees.

We are a tightly knit team


Although our team works hard to bring custom solutions to the clients we serve, it isn’t always work at RTS Labs. We believe that a team that works hard together should play together as well. When we aren’t buried in our work, we:

  • Take walks around the pond together
  • Have lunch together
  • Gather at places around town for team building fun
  • Celebrate project launches and successes
  • Enjoy monthly lightning talks
  • Eat donuts on Fridays as part of an ongoing mission to find the best donuts in town


Our common principles and values in the workplace guide the discussion and interaction with our company, our people and our clients. Those principles are:

  • Leading through learning & teaching
  • Mutual Respect
  • Honest Communication
Our Principles and Values
We promote positive culture at RTSLabs


RTS Labs is a flat organization with an open office layout that promotes creativity,  collaboration, and communication. Our CEO doesn’t even have an office.  Our culture thrives off of:

  • Leading by example
    We’ve found that we’re more efficient when we remove the barriers of hierarchy. Everyone at RTS has a chance to be a leader, take charge on a project, or add valuable insight to the projects they are on currently.
  • Celebrating our employees
    Our employees are our biggest asset, so we make sure they know it by celebrating birthdays, milestone events, and project successes.
  • Dependability
    Working in a flat structured environment means that dependability is crucial. We are a self-managed and self-motivated team, so we must truly depend on one another to complete work for our clients.
  • Sincere camaraderie
    Our open office space allows great conversation and collaboration with our developers, allowing us to quickly solve problems and learn from our colleagues.
