Our services

Cinder’s sibling company, Novus Labs, is a global engineering solutions provider offering proven expertise and resources to support your product development and testing goals.

One day, one of our largest clients asked if we could provide awesome people to test their products onsite, instead of shipping the product to our facilities. Since recruiting was not the core of Novus’ business, something had to change to meet our clients’ needs.

In 2012, Cinder was founded as a sibling company to Novus Labs. In 2015 , we were recognized as the #1 Fastest-Growing Private Company in Oregon by the Portland Business Journal.
