SALES MANAGER

Linkfluence is hiring!

About

Linkfluence first started as a passion project between four students with an ambitious goal: to understand and “map” the social web. With backgrounds in engineering, artificial intelligence, and sociology, these founders soon realized the potential of this idea and launched a company in 2006 to fulfill this potential. Today, Linkfluence is a leading social media intelligence company that turns social data into valuable insights for global brands.

Our hybrid combination of AI and human expertise is what sets us apart from other social listening players in the industry. We serve over 500 clients worldwide across all industries, from global brands like LVMH, Danone, Carrefour, AirFrance, Pernod Ricard, and agencies like Publicis and Havas.

Our team is young, diverse, and ambitious, and we’re growing rapidly. We have 220 people of over 20 different nationalities spread across our offices in Paris, London, San Francisco, New York, Düsseldorf, Shanghai, and Singapore.
We are a multicultural organization and are committed to a gender-balanced workforce.

If you’re passionate about staying on top of online trends, if your ambition is to help companies serve their customers, if you’re curious about what’s happening in the world and love to listen to others, and if you’re thrilled to be a part of shaping the future of social media intelligence, then we want to hear from you!
