Urban Linker is a recruitment company and head hunter specialised in web careers and present in France and Germany. Established in 2009, the aim of this Parisian start-up is to offer a service adapted to this innovative sector by presenting a fun and jaunty image that makes fun of more traditional methods of recruitment.

Today, Urban Linker has 22 consultants, 338 clients and has helped to make over 1200 recruitments. The consultancy underwent rapid growth in Paris and wanted to open a new office in France’s second city.

After Paris & Berlin, Urban Linker chose to set up in Lyon last January. Aderly helped the company to find premises adapted to its activity, gain information about the Lyon ecosystem and connect with the sector’s other actors.

“The Rhone Alpes area is undergoing exponential development and it is the flagship of French Tech. It has the second highest digital offer in France; the sector is truly booming in the region. Its excellent schools (Centrale, Supinfo, INSA, Epitech…) and its support of the entrepreneurial ecosystem, thanks to a number of incubators and accelerators in the Lyon region, were all aspects that helped Urban Linker decide to set up in the area”, explained  Boris de Chalvron, Director General.

The consultancy’s objective is to accompany the exponential growth of the Lyon-based start-ups that contribute to Lyon’s national and international reach and reputation. To achieve this, they intend to recruit 30 people over the next 3 years.
