Linnworks empowers brands to sell better by connecting commerce everywhere, so they grow revenues wherever their customers are.
From our founding as a company, our ways of working have grown and evolved.
Fedor Dzjuba and Jegor Possashkov formed a development company, later to be knows as Linn Systems Ltd... Fed is still a Director of the business and can often be found in the Chichester office (we don’t think he has a home).
Fed was selling things on eBay, as you do, and he built himself a program to download order details from eBay for his own use.
Fed started selling the software on eBay, and people started buying it! After a while, customers started asking for features to be added.
So Fed started to add features… and customers asked for more… this was becoming a full-time job… during this time Linn Systems launched its first Linnworks Local product and made its first official sale.
And so it was that Fed and his co-founders moved into a real office space. Linnworks launched Linnworks Anywhere, our first cloud-based product.
The market took to Linnworks, and so did its largest players. Having gone cloud-based, we joined the eBay Accelerated Growth Program and dazzled the masses with our bulk listing tool and Amazon repricing tool. As a result of the growth, the first Linnworks employee joined the team! This marked the start of the growth of the Linnfamily, and we moved into our Chichester and Tallinn offices.
We grew fast in 2013, the team increased to 54 people and 3000 registered customers, becoming recognized as a leader in the field of online selling and Cross Border Trade. We also held our first Linn Academy in a small but mighty way! In those days it was more like a user group, but this planted the seed for bigger things to come.
We branched out to the US.
We held our next level Linn Academy at the Microsoft Head Offices - fancy!
The team expanded to 75, and we celebrated the soft-launch of Linnworks.net - a monumental moment in the history of Linn Systems - as the power of the desktop application is offered in a browser-based system. We held an even bigger and better Linn Academy conference, and it’s now tradition to make them bigger and better each year.
Callum Campbell joined us as our new CEO… exciting times!
We opened our London and Austin offices and buckled down to continue our quiet expansion.
2020 will go down as an extraordinary year in world history due to the global Covid-19 Pandemic. In response Linnworks moved swiftly to a remote operating model and continued to provide our services without skipping a beat. A testament to our team spirit and our customer centricity if ever there was one. The eCommerce market experienced a massive surge, with more people than ever shopping online, and more traders than ever turning to us to get them into the omni-channel marketplace.
