Plausible Labs

Plausible Labs consists of developers that care deeply about user experience, and designers that truly understand our target platforms.

Our members have worked on nearly every type of software: servers, operating systems, graphics pipelines, audio processing. You name it, one of us has probably done it. This gives us the ability to support all aspects of your project, from firmware development to web services.

If you are curious how our software co-op is organized, you can take a peek at our bylaws on our website http://www.plausible.coop.
