About us

Referential Labs aspires to improve human well-being through software.

We are doing this by:

  • applying research from various fields, including computer science, behavioral economics, psychology, neuroscience;
  • questioning conventional wisdom and our own conjectures by measuring and analyzing results of well-designed experiments.

Today we improve human happiness for those involved in building software, a profession with high turnover rates and high rates of dissatisfaction, by:

  • building effective software delivery pipelines that measurably improve team happiness by reducing stress and turn over;
  • designing distributed systems that have well defined guarantees, failure modes, and operational properties reducing MTTR.
