About us

Who we are

Lickability is a small software studio in NYC building iOS apps with clients like Meetup, The Atlantic, Aloe Bud, Houseparty, and more. We've also created a few of our own apps, Pinpoint and Accelerator

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 office is open, casual, and comfortable. That means flexible working hours, easy collaboration with teammates, and plenty of space to stretch out and think. It also means access to plenty of coffee, snacks, and drinks—and the occasional pizza for company game nights! Plus, you have the freedom to work from home if you need to. 

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. 

Lickability Fridays are our favorite days of the week. While Monday–Thursday is dedicated to client work, Fridays are for focusing on internal projects. We kick off Lickability Fridays with our weekly Everybody Meeting, followed by team lunch and an afternoon of working on company products like our in-house style guide or a future to-be-announced app. 

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!
