Who We Are
LiveLink is a tangible, satisfying and profitable product - we supply the e-commerce platform for businesses of various sizes, from small business owners around the UK to the highest-revenue company in the world: Walmart US.
Our technology is not just another CRUD app - it's an interactive canvas-based product builder, it's a complex engine for rendering advanced templates and 3d previews, it's a regular load testing process to keep millions of dollars flowing through the app on the busiest days, it's a fleet of standalone kiosks spread across the UK's stores and much much more. At the moment we maintain dozens of powerful (speaking 80 core 0.5TBRAM) dedicated servers, store petabytes of data and are actively moving all of that to the cloud to let us scale indefinitely (and have some fun in the process).
Great place to live, work and grow - Havant is a relatively small (~45k citizens), but very well connected town. We are based in a big, modern, stand alone building with a private car park and a huge garden (hammocks and BBQ included), just next to the lovely foot/cycling path leading to the harbour (15 minutes walk) and the open sea (30 minutes cycling). There are two big, fully equipped kitchens, where you can enjoy free fruits/biscuits/soda and quality coffee while discussing tech news with your team mate or just relax watching the squirrels playing in the garden. When it comes to entertainment LiveLink didn't stop on table football: our games room offers pool table, air hockey, the VR station (Valve Index for the inquisitive ones), RetroPI console and the pinball table hacked together during one of LiveLink's regular Hackathons. The company encourages to allocate at least a few hours every week on training and has a special Slack channel for financial requests to meet all your needs and keep you efficient and motivated. While at the moment LiveLink doesn't offer fully remote roles, there is no problem with working from home now and then, and the working hours are very flexible. Oh, one more thing - if you’re as lucky as I was, you may also have a chance to pilot the small plane with David, one of the company owners and a big fan of aviation!
Real impact - all employees are not only free to provide feedback, but also actively asked for it. It is impossible to implement every single idea, but our voice is always heard by the open-minded management. All of our small development teams (5 teams of 3-8 people) have a lot of freedom in designing their software, as well as choosing their tools, projects and processes. We are empowered to lead our work into production, with great support from all Tech Teams. Last but not least, there is an appraisal process performed roughly twice a year, which not only gives everyone a chance to provide/receive feedback, but also to get a bonus payment for your contributions.
