DeviceLab Ltd. exists as a not-for-profit business to provide device testing facilities to businesses in Scotland, and in particular Edinburgh where we’re currently based.
We’re a non-profit because we believe enough businesses and customers supporting us will create a self-sustaining community resource – a resource that will raise the quality and standard of output by not only our users, but the whole ecosystem of start-ups, agencies and other businesses that are involved in creating mobile web experiences and native apps in our locality.
We operate very much in the spirit of the Open Device Lab movement, however we believe that a cover charge for hire – that can be rebilled to your clients and customers – is the best way to keep our lab facilities up-to-date and world class in an ever-changing landscape of form factors and operating systems.
We ensure that we’re open to all sizes of business, from freelancers up, by offering tiered pricing and free testing access for those working on open source software projects. In terms of business conduct, we will never discriminate on the basis of gender, background, age or sexuality.
We also look forward to our part in assisting the availability of education and pathways into the web industry for folks from all backgrounds and ages in future.
We’re an equal opportunities business, however at present we don’t actually employ anyone!
