Our Story

Mobi Lab’s mission is to make technology easy to use for people on the go. Or as we put it – to make robots talk to humans. We are doing it by designing and building complex and innovative digital products that are easy to use.

How it all started

Mobi Lab is a part of the Mobi Solutions Group (est. 2001), founded by five friends (Linnar Viik, Rain Rannu, Lauri Kinkar, Veiko Raime, Veljo Otsason). Mobi Lab was previously the development department in Mobi Solutions. Mobi Lab’s spin-off took place in 2013, led by Veiko, to keep a stronger focus and offer cutting edge business analysis, UI/UX design, mobile software development and testing services to our clients and partners. In 2017, another spin-off took place when Codemagic, CI/CD product developed by our team members, left under Mobi Lab’s roof and began their very own separate successful startup journey.

Mobi Solutions has been developing mobile software and applications since 2004, long before smartphones and apps as we know them today were widely available. The engineers of our team have been successful in launching new projects and spin-offs that have grown to successful global companies.

The most successful of them are Fortumo (acquired by Boku), which offers mobile payment collection solutions worldwide, and Messente - a worldwide SMS messaging and 2FA service provider. In addition, Mobi Solutions is an active seed and early-stage investor investing in new promising technology startups and helping them get the needed boost towards success.

Mobi was the first software company in Estonia to begin developing mobile applications for Android in 2009. Indilo Wireless, which joined Mobi in 2011, was the first in Estonia to start developing for iOS in 2008. By now, Mobi Lab is the biggest mobile-only design and software company in Estonia.

Where we are today

We focus on digital product development for mobile and Unity-based applications for augmented reality environments. We help companies achieve higher ROI by covering the whole mobile application development process, from strategy consultation and research to product support. We apply the agile LeSS (Large-Scale Scrum) framework principles in our development processes.

Mobi Lab’s team includes 40 passionate and open-minded iOS, Android, Flutter and React Native engineers, designers, quality experts and product managers. Many of them have been with Mobi Lab from day one or even before back from the Mobi Solutions days. A great example of not wanting to leave us is our COO, Romain from France, who joined Mobi Solutions back in 2009 as a software engineering intern and has now his second home and family here at Mobi Lab.

For the past years, we have gained a lot of experience collaborating with global companies like Microsoft, Ericsson, Samsung, Bolt, Telia, Cleveron etc. These collaborations have given us experience that most developers can only dream of - working with insanely successful projects and apps used by tens of millions of people every day. The best known are Skype, Text+, IN Pay, Pocopay, MyFitness, Apollo, CollectNet and HOIA (the official COVID-19 contact tracing app for Estonia).
