Founded in 2003, Linode is a leading cloud hosting provider with 400,000 customers worldwide served out of eight global datacenters. Linode invests heavily in its people and has set the bar for excellence in the cloud hosting industry. Our customer service, development, ops, hardware, marketing, and documentation teams are all part of making Linode the most simple, powerful and reliable hosting provider.

About Us

Even if you’ve never heard of Linode, one of the world’s first and largest open source-focused cloud hosting providers, you likely frequent a website or use an application that wouldn’t exist without it.

With a platform that boasts nearly half a million users around the world and growing, it might come as a surprise that Linode is based in Haddonfield, New Jersey — though the company will call Philadelphia home when it moves into its new headquarters on 3rd and Arch Streets later this year.

It wouldn’t be the first surprise Linode has to offer.

Though the company is, by all means, a major tech player, its growth has been organic and its values have not changed. There aren’t many layers between engineers and C-level executives, feedback is always taken seriously and the impact employees have on the company, its customers and the Linode community is visible on a day-to-day basis.

Fostering a supportive environment is a big part of Linode’s company culture and the backbone of the work the company does. The team is passionate about solving problems and helping people, and as a result, professional growth at Linode is bound only by individual ambitions.

As one employee put it, “There’s no ceiling here.”

Linode has never stopped looking for new tech talent, and they’ll continue to look for new teammates as the company and its online community continue to grow.
