Red Nova Labs Expands Creates More Jobs in Kansas City

Previous Battle of the Brands winner Red Nova Labs has expanded their offices into Denver and created new jobs in Kansas City.

“Kansas City is a fantastic birthplace for startups, and it’s always going to be our home. We’re also  finding Denver developers have a lot of experience growing platforms like ours,” said Adam England, the company’s chief technology officer and veteran of the Kansas City startup scene.

RNL’s new team in the Rocky Mountains is keeping up their startup image with an ultra-modern, contemporary coworking space in the heart of downtown. The expansion was fueled by Red Nova Labs’ technology platform, storEDGE, which has grown rapidly across the United States.

“We have over 3,000 facilities using storEDGE in the United States,” said England. "Our customers love our innovative products. The team at Red Nova Labs never settles for mediocre products, and that relentless focus has helped establish us as leaders in this industry."

With ever-increasing demand for storEDGE services, Red Nova Labs has doubled their software development and engineering team over the last two years. And they aren’t looking to ditch their Kansas City roots anytime soon.

Red Nova Labs’ growth has spurred more hiring for tech jobs in Kansas City. For information on open positions, visit and apply today.

"You can never have too many great programmers, and we are lucky to have some of Kansas City's best at Red Nova Labs," said England. "We are excited for the opportunity to expand and diversify our engineering team, and Denver offers a great technology hub to grow in."
