On-site React Development

Computer Lab built on-demand streaming functionality into the iHeartRadio web platform, enabling iHeart to launch their paid subscription service before Pandora. We worked alongside iHeart's web team to scale the existing React application to millions of users.

React Native App

Computer Lab worked with Artforum to develop a native app experience for their artguide feature. We tackled platform constraints to ensure that the app was a polished and essential tool matching the Artforum brand. Download the artguide app on iOS or Android.

CMS/AWS

Screen is a curatorial collective based in New York, Beijing and Berlin. We worked closely with staff to improve the performance and user experience of their bilingual media platform. We reduced site loading speed, simplified content management and delivered an engaging experience to a global audience.

Landing Page

We created an interactive 3D landing page for a marketing data visualization tool launched by Verdes, a creative agency in NYC. The PinPoints build convinced us that React’s declarative components are a great fit for developing 3D user interfaces in the browser.

Great engineering paired with domain expertise.

Healthcare and Biotech

We'll be your partner as you navigate the unique regulatory and technical challenges of the healthcare industry. Our team has years of experience working with industry leaders like Flatiron Health and we're passionate about building better health information systems.

The Arts

For our arts clients, we take care to develop solutions that will be sustainable within the context of their organization. Our involvement in creative internet communities means we have a personal interest in seeing arts projects succeed.

Rapid Prototyping

Computer Lab can rapidly form specialized teams to tackle MVP builds with highly involved technical, data science, or design needs. Our process ensures well-documented, world-class software engineering that will help de-risk your business.
