Our two founding directors first met while working on a joint project, Jen on the technology provider side and Nina on the financial services provider side. It took almost five years of talking about the gap they’d spotted before agreeing to either put the dream to rest or make it happen, and Linktank was born in 2014. Since then we’ve grown from a 3-person consultancy to the place we are today, where we never forget to be humbled by the ability of this small seed to have attracted such incredible people and captured their imaginations, passions and appetites for possibility.

We’re proudly a predominantly female business and we offer a diverse range of skills across the technical and practice landscape of the industry.
