FRONT END
DEVELOPER

More photos have been taken this decade than in the rest of history! Rapid advances in mobile technology mean
that over a trillion pictures are captured each year. We help the photo industry stay ahead of the game.


LiveLink is looking for talented engineers to work with us to build solutions for some of the world’s biggest brands,
and millions of their customers. Over the last 12 years, we’ve grown a diverse client base that ranges from individual
store owners, through high street chains to massive global corporations. Although we’re based in the UK, our core
clients are also located in Ireland and North America.

What you should join us

  • We love developing technology, utilising Open Source projects as the foundation for our systems
     

  • We have an open, honest and transparent culture
     

  • We empower people to make decisions with impact
     

  • We are open to change in our processes, techniques and skills
     

  • We have a smart, motivated and supportive team
     

  • We value learning, agility and feedback
     

Our team finds creative and innovative ways to solve complex hardware and software problems for our clients. We
keep development cycles fast, adapting as we go along, and investing in a culture of discovery and continual
feedback.

LiveLink is looking for individuals committed to learning more of their trade, and supporting each other’s growth in
the process. We still have a startup-like culture of openness to ideas and opportunities for talent to be put to good
use… plus a market-tested and profitable product line. So we like to think we have the best of both worlds.

 

You will join around 90 of us, based in comfortable, freshly renovated offices located in a conservation area in
Hampshire. Trains to Chichester, Southampton, Brighton and London are a 5 minute walk away, and we are also a 15
minute walk to the sea. We’ve got all the usual suspects; breakout areas, a games room and free on-site employee
parking. And plenty of the more unusual suspects; a sizable garden, fitness suite, a plethora of musical instruments,
modern kitchens, a host of the latest gadgets, opportunities for sporting enthusiasts, copious nerf guns and much
more. Plus a 1Gbps fibre connection… we take our technology very seriously!

 

To make a long story short, we’ve grown a place where we love working, and we think you will too.
