Laurel’s Mission to Return Time:

We’re a team that is connected by time. Life has taught us its true value and finite nature. We value every minute and are on a mission to return time. And we live and breathe that mission in everything we do — from how we build our product that saves our customers time to how we operate as a company.

Come work with a team that’s intelligent yet humble, visionary yet gets things done. A team that’s only getting started at cracking a problem that affects every person who uses a screen to work.

Come build a company that will stand the test of time as we look to understand time itself.

We all waste a staggering amount of time at work (~33%) because we have no idea where we are spending it. Worse yet, we continue to operate in a factory model that simply does not apply to creative work. Our big bet is that by understanding time, we’ll be able to move away from it as a unit of value. In the future knowledge economy (lawyers, accountants, engineers), contributions will be assessed on value added, not the underlying time spent adding it.

Ambitious mission to say the least, so where are we starting? We have created a new market category called Time Automation that automates the timekeeping process for professionals and allows us to collect time data at scale. Before Laurel, professionals had to manually record every six minutes of their day into antiquated timekeeping software. Not anymore. We are moving away from a world in which humans tell a machine what they did at work, to our version of the world in which the machine tells the human.

We are looking for individuals who share our passion of returning time. Come join us on our journey as we spend time solving time. It will be a long road but if we’re even half right, we’ll change the way work is measured and performed forever.

Our mission is about returning time. To return yours, we’ve gone ahead and provided the answers to the questions we think you should be asking us. For more details, read on.

About Laurel & Roadmap:

Laurel is the first company to apply AI to tracking time.

Company Roadmap:

Phase 1 (today):

  • Applying AI to automate timesheets for professional services. Value is: (1) more money for the firm and (2) less time for the user

Phase 2 (2025):

  • Aggregating time data and moving pro serv industries from selling time → selling outcomes (rewiring the incentive model for 20% of Global GDP)

Phase 3: (2030):

  • Tie outcomes back to the input of time across all digital industries–and leverage our work data set to automate work that does not create leverage


Series B ($55M raised from top-flight investors). Rebuilt platform E2E post Series B raise which launched in Feb 2023. In just 15 months, we’ve gone from $0 → ~$7M ARR on the new platform (including significant ARR from upsells because of the new platform). Customer quote: “Laurel is the product I’ve been hoping for since I started practicing.”
