Company and Position Introduction

For two decades, Linden Lab has been a pioneer in the creation of virtual worlds and the metaverse.

The company recently expanded to include TiliaPay, a registered money services business and fully licensed money transmitter that powers virtual economies.

Linden Lab is a company of creators, including engineers, artists, musicians, writers, game players and makers. We do things that no one else does, and we aren't afraid to take on complex challenges and create unique solutions.
