A note from Grant

Noah Labhart, on paper at least, in the early part of his career, has all the hallmarks of a classic math and computer science graduate’s path through tech. He interned at places like Hewlett Packard and worked as a developer in the first few years post college before moving into management.

However, for Noah Labhart, there is more to the story than punching the clock working for someone else. After 8 years working in IT management for Alcon Laboratories, Noah made the leap on his own and hasn’t looked back since.

In 2015, he started his own development studio, called Touchtap, which specializes in native mobile application development.  And, as if starting and running one company isn’t enough, in 2016, he co-founded Veryable, an on-demand marketplace for labor in the warehousing space. Never one to sit still, Noah also runs the popular Code Story podcast. It features tech leaders reflecting on their human story in creating world changing, disruptive digital products.

“I got into math and started pursuing it but I really started to enjoy my computer science classes. In coding, I loved the creativity and I started building some websites for myself, throwing pictures up of my family and little bios. I learned html, css, javascript, and really liked it.”

“At the time there was an opportunity to work for Alcon Laboratories. I had a lot of friends that worked there. Great company. Takes really good care of their employees. Pretty good flexibility. So I was like ‘I can do my band during the weekends and have a really great job during the week’. And I worked for Alcon for 8 years.”

“As problems needed to be fixed, we brought on more help. We didn’t try to bite off more than we can chew. That’s how Touchtap grew and we’ve done a similar thing with Veryable. We’ve started with uncsontrained models. We’ve built things as we’ve needed them. And instead of building these intricate systems, we’ve built something, responded to market feedback, and then build it in a new way to meet the needs of the market.”
