About us

Who we are

Lickability is a small software studio in NYC designing and developing apps for clients like MeetupThe AtlanticAloe BudHouseparty, and more. We've also created a few of our own apps, PinpointAcceleratorScorecard, and Buildwatch.

We pride ourselves on five core values

  1. Simplicity – Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler. Inessential complexity is bad design. 
  2. Craft – Pay attention to every detail. Take extra care even when it goes unnoticed. 
  3. Clarity – Build and explain systems as explicitly as possible. Avoid cleverness. 
  4. Collaboration – Ask for help and offer it. We’re better when we work together. 
  5. Delight – Have fun. Make things that will help people be happier.

Working at Lickability

Our culture

Our culture is open, caring, and comfortable. We're transparent about salaries, company profits, and are always working to create a better workplace. You'll have the freedom of working from home (or anywhere) and taking days off when you need to. We care about each other, and having a healthy work/life balance is an important part of our culture.

We support each other. Our team is focused on helping each other learn and grow. What does this mean in practice? Weekly 1:1 meetings with your manager, an office full of whiteboards, Wednesday morning group learning sessions, and an environment that encourages asking questions. While pair programming with a teammate is always an option, we know it isn't for everyone—so we make sure there are plenty of less-stressful ways to learn and collaborate as well. 

Inclusivity is important to us. Our team, like much of the tech industry, is lacking diversity—we want to do better. So far, our efforts include researching and implementing more inclusive recruiting methods, company-wide diversity and bias training, and sponsoring community conferences like try! Swift—and we're always looking for and considering other ways of promoting inclusivity at our company. We’re actively working on making Lickability a friendly and welcoming place to work for everyone. That could be you!
