About the company

Linkfluence first started as a passion project between four students with an ambitious goal: to understand and “map” the social web. Today, Linkfluence is a leading AI-enabled consumer insights company that turns social data into valuable insights for global brands. Our hybrid combination of AI and human expertise is what sets us apart from other social listening players in the industry.

We serve over 500 clients worldwide across all industries, from global brands like LVMH, Nike, and Ralph Lauren, to Danone, Pernod Ricard, and Porsche.

In 2021, Linkfluence was acquired by Meltwater, a leading global provider of media intelligence and social analytics. This important achievement and milestone further highlights Linkfluence’s core mission and vision. This also represents a huge opportunity for growth for the company and for Linkfluencers.

Meltwater’s Artificial Intelligence department is composed of several teams grouped under a single entity called Fairhair.ai, an open data science platform.

Our team is young, diverse, ambitious, and growing rapidly. We have 180 people of over 20 different nationalities spread across our offices in Paris, London, San Francisco, New York, Düsseldorf, Shanghai, and Singapore.
