Ruby on Rails Software Developer

About LiveLink

A rapidly growing company, LiveLink's software products now lead the European market of digital photo kiosks and online photo ordering systems. In 2012 we transferred these skills into the greetings card industry as well, and our CardCreator kiosks can produce a personalised card (or gift) instore in around 2 minutes... like Moonpig or Funky Pigeon but the customer takes the finished card/gift away with them. The latest development our team is working on is to bring all these features together into one hybrid kiosk.
