Company: The Linktree Story

Linktree is the market-leading linking platform that was the first of its kind, creating an entirely new category in tech. Linktree is the identity layer of the internet, allowing users to curate a singular destination housing what’s most important to them, in real time.


With a user base of 13M+, Linktree helps brands, influencers, small businesses, activists and everyday creators carve out their place and reach their full potential online. The world’s biggest influencers and creators from Selena Gomez to Pharrell Williams, as well as big brands like HBO and Facebook are using Linktree to connect their followers to their entire online ecosystem.


The platform averages 30,000 daily sign ups and has over half a billion visits to Linktrees each month. In the past 12 months, Linktree has gained phenomenal momentum growing its user base by 3x with no signs of slowing down. In March 2021, we raised $45 million in Series B funding. The funding will be used to expand headcount globally, develop product features and go towards making Linktree the best possible place to work for our staff!


Role:

We hire with a people-first approach, so more importantly as a human, you will be collaborative, curious, enjoy solving complex problems and have empathy for the growing pains of a rapidly scaling startup.


We are looking for Frontend Software Engineers who are great problem solvers, enjoy collaborating with others (not just engineers) that value well-written and tested code.


There are a lot of things we think are great about working at Linktree but we are biased, so here are the key takeaways that most engineers seemed to want to know:


  • Tech Stack: Primary use React,Typescript, Node.js. The rest of our stack includes Storybook, Elasticsearch, REST APIs, PostgreSQL, GraphQL, AWS (Lambda), Kubernetes, Terraform and Snowflake. Our first build was in PHP so that is our legacy code.

  • We have recently moved our product teams into cross-functional squads, with Engineerings, Designers and Product Managers working closely together on product features.

  • We push a culture of collaboration and strong communication, with a focus on our Senior hires in their ability to coach and mentor others. We have also recently designed career paths with different options for those that want to progress into management and those that prefer to stick to technical excellence and contribution.

Requirements

  • You could come from other SaaS product companies but we are also equally interested in agency backgrounds, ideally with a mix of product and website build experience.

  • An appreciation for building consistently beautiful UI by working with designers to enhance their designs through rich animations and user-friendly interfaces.

  • We’re open to your tech stack but experience in React is highly preferred

  • Strong communication skills, high EQ and collaborative people


Our Culture/Benefits:

Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:

  • We are a family-friendly and flexible work environment with our team with a number of our team working hours around school and home commitments.

  • We have several diversity and inclusion initiatives underway, including a D&I council, training for all staff on neurodiversity, unconscious bias and the incorporation of a transgender inclusion policy.

  • Our team is diverse across age, gender, and race and we are very proud of that.

  • All Linktree staff work either fully remote or a hybrid remote and in-office sometimes and that will continue even when COVID is behind us. Our CTO Mitch Malone is also fully remote so you could be anywhere really.

  • Linktree contributes up to AUD $1,000 (or foreign equivalent) towards the set up of your home work-station for each employee

  • We prioritise our team's mental health, with all employees having free access to Smiling Mind & Uprise, including 1:1 coaching sessions from qualified psychologists or counsellors.
