About Us

So you want to know about us?! How flattering. Let's start from the beginning.

Once upon a time, advertising was about the Mad Men and the Media Agencies: the creative and the commercial. Advertisers needed smart strategies, great relationships with media owners, and buying power.

Then digital came along, with its trillions of data points and real-time media buying. Advertising became a science overnight, and buying power made way for brain power.

What was needed was a solid understanding of experimentation and data.

That’s when Brainlabs was born. We were on a mission to make marketing more scientific. 

We started with our first hypothesis: instead of teaching traditional marketers how to do regression analysis or coding, it would be better to hire mathematicians, scientists, programmers and teach them how to do this new kind of marketing.

This hypothesis proved to be a success, delivering remarkable results for our clients. There is no secret sauce behind these results: we follow the scientific method to test, learn, and deliver commercial impact.

We’ve grown from one to 250 people in eight years, placing us 1st in the Deloitte Tech Track and 4th in the FT1000: a list of Europe’s fastest-growing companies compiled by the Financial Times.

And we’ve been having a heck of a lot of fun on the journey so far. We’ve held nine company-wide Mario Kart tournaments to date, learned a company Haka, and won bundles of awards across the globe (including the Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2019, Best Large PPC Agency on both sides of the pond, and the Sunday Times Best Places to Work 2018).

We’re only just getting started. Our business model is built to support clients in any way they need: as an agency, a tech provider, or a consultancy. We call this our ‘do the stuff clients can’t do better themselves’ approach. It seems to be quite popular.

Add to that further global expansion plans, and you can see why we’re so excited for the future. So whoever you might be, thanks for reading all about Brainlabs and please join us on this journey by getting in touch:
