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. Drawing from the customer experiences and insights of 24 years in business, WebLinc has developed an in-house ecommerce platform, Workarea, that unites commerce, content and insights in one application.

As the team balances their traditional agency model with an emerging product focus (which includes the cloud-based order management system, OrderBot, in addition to Workarea), hiring is at top of mind.

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, but 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 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 neighborhood's unofficial tech cafeteria, National Mechanics - also dubbed WebLinc's "fourth office". The restaurant is located just downstairs from WebLinc's S3rd Street office in the historic and striking Mechanics National Bank building. 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; the company has developed a cadre of relationships with six service partners, who implement Workarea for customers, expanding the platform's reach. 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.
