About Us

If there’s one street in Philadelphia that inspires creativity and collaboration, it’s N3rd Street in Old City. Home to two out of three WebLinc offices and former property owner Ben Franklin himself, it’s become an industrial campus linking the ecommerce shop to the heart of Philly’s tech community.

WebLinc is growing. On average, WebLinc has three to six open job opportunities each quarter, but maintaining the unique company culture is a top priority. A new buddy system pairs fresh hires with other employees to quickly get acclimated to the organization (and to ensure they don’t get lost in the multitude of Old City lunch options). Bike commuters are a big group at WebLinc; less than nine of its 130 employees in Philadelphia drive to work. When employees do decide to hop in the car, it’s usually to bring their four-legged — sometimes three-legged — friends to work.

There’s also a universal understanding at WebLinc that if you’re looking for something to do after work, there’s likely someone ready to join. You can find staff redeeming discounted perks at the area’s unofficial tech cafeteria, National Mechanics — dubbed WebLinc’s “fourth office” downstairs. It’s used for both business (meetings and interviews sometimes happen here) and pleasure (a round of Quizzo and happy hour, anyone?). Not interested in bar hangs? Join an organized craft night or axe throwing team (yes, that’s a real thing).

As its headcount steadily grows, WebLinc remains a loyal partner to its staff and retail clients. Good partnerships are a must. Each new client gets a dedicated implementation team, and team leads develop that relationship based on open communication and collaboration. Everyone knows their impact on the thriving business, is aware of how the company is performing and enjoys themselves along the way.
