Working here

Our designers and engineers are passionate and engaged collaborators with one another and with our clients and users. Several are also part-time teachers, on the faculty at Parsons, Pratt, Wesleyan, and Yale.

We periodically have open positions for detail-oriented, collaborative, and change-making designers and engineers. If that describes you, send a note. Linked by Air staff combine remote and on-premise work in our Brooklyn office to fit individualized needs.
