A little flex time
To create the next generation of data leaders, who will develop solutions that will benefit people everywhere.
We are a small but rapidly scaling Data Analytics consultancy business with a core purpose: “To create the next generation of data leaders, who will develop solutions that will benefit people everywhere.” We are experts in industry-leading tools such as Tableau, Alteryx and Snowflake and provide our enterprise-level clients with project teams who deliver bespoke solutions for their complex data problems.
At The Information Lab, the well-being of our employees is one of our top priorities. A good work-life balance, encouraging continuous learning and development, celebrating each other’s successes and supporting each other in everything we undertake underpins everything we do. We work fully remotely and have a diverse team across different countries within European Time Zones.
We are an Irish company, but many of our team are located in the UK and further afield in Europe and South Africa. We are part of the broader Information Lab Group who cover many countries across Europe, with over 400 consultants across different countries who you can collaborate with in our internal network.
Flexible working approach
At The Information Lab, flexibility is in our DNA. We are a fully remote company, and all we ask is that employees are located within European Time Zones (+/- 2 hours of Dublin) and that you have good WiFi.
Being remote-first has enabled us to expand the diversity of our team and we now have people working in Ireland, the UK, Poland and South Africa. We are also happy for people to work temporarily in different locations (e.g. visiting friends and family in a different country) – it has great benefits for your happiness!
We appreciate and understand that some people would prefer to have a space to work which isn't in their home. As such, we are happy to cover the costs of a co-working space near to you.
Now, being remote doesn't mean that we never see each other in person. We run two trips a year where we bring everyone together in Ireland for a few days – it's always great to see many new and old faces!
Scoring against our flexibility index (1 = not at all flexible, 100 = couldn’t be more flexible, 51 is average) using a number of parameters to assess flexibility such as working from home, hours, frequency of travel, benefits, etc.
Scoring against our employee perception index (1 = not seen as flexible, 100 = couldn’t be happier with the flexibility, 51 is average) using a number of more emotional / perception based questions to understand whether employees feel supported and offered what they want. The areas we cover are work-life balance / managerial support / flexible benefits / working environment / and many others.
"The Information Lab is a genuinely great place to work. They are the true definition of an agile flexible company."

Hey! I'm Tom, Head of People at The Information Lab Ireland. I've seen the growth of the team over the past 4 years and it's been a pleasure to be part of. The work which I'm able to do here is incredibly meaningful to me, and I am given the trust and autonomy to get on and do it in the way that works for me and my lifestyle.
At The Information Lab, we believe in hiring and developing experts and letting them thrive in the conditions that work best for them. Being part of a small team means that there is plenty of variety in what we do and loads of opportunities for learning new things, taking on new challenges, and growing into leadership positions. We are all passionate about learning and our weekly show and tell series, where we teach each other from our recent experiences, is a great example of this.
