About LinkedIn


Regularly lauded as a best place to work, LinkedIn is the world’s largest social network for job-hunters, professionals, and businesses. Founded in 2003 by Reid Hoffman, LinkedIn has been a subsidiary of Microsoft since 2016 and has more than 750 million members in over 200 countries.

Headquartered in Sunnyvale, CA, LinkedIn gets heaps of praise for its benefits and corporate culture—and even the design and comfort of its offices (thirty-three around the world, including São Paulo, London, Dublin, Amsterdam, Graz, Milan, Paris, Munich, Madrid, Stockholm, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Australia, Canada, India, and Dubai). LinkedIn falls on the upper end of the market when it comes to pay, with a higher average salary for its employees.

Free lunches are provided, and the socially conscious company makes sure there are options for those with specific diets, like vegan or halal. Benefits, insurance, and maternity leave plans all get high marks, and LinkedIn invests heavily in its employees’ professional development, including devoting one Friday each month to “InDay,” which includes a speaker series, and a “Hackday” competition, where engineers form teams, work on any project they can come up with, put it together in a day, and present it to the entire organization, including executive management.
