Applied Science

From studying how technology impacts workplace habits to using sensors to monitor how meeting rooms are utilized, researchers at WeWork are uniquely positioned to explore problems at the intersection of the digital and physical environment. Our researchers are based primarily in Palo Alto, San Francisco, and New York, and come from a diverse range of backgrounds, including data science, architecture, psychology, and computer science. We conduct both fundamental and applied research that impacts the environments in which people spend most of their working week.
