Linus Sebastian – Early life and pre YouTube Career
Linus worked as a manager for the (now defunct) Canadian online computer store NCIX. His roles at the company include: full-time sales representative, a high-end systems designer, a product manager, and a category manager. He was also asked by the company to be the host for their products demonstrations channel, which later shut down due to high production costs, and low viewership.
That was when Linus Tech Tips was born; to keep things relatable while giving enough separation from the NCIX brand. Working for a tech retailer Linus had access to a lot of computer hardware. That really gave them a good head start because figuring out how to get the parts to film videos, is a huge problem for most of the small tech creators.
Linus Sebastian – YouTube Career
Linus started making YouTube Videos in 2008. Initially the Linus Tech Tips channel was created to showcase the products that NCIX sold and help their customers get hands on and assembling experience before purchasing the parts online. In 2013, Linus negotiated a deal with NCIX where he got to keep all of Linus Tech Tips’ assets. This was the foundation for Linus Media Group and kickstarted a series of channels thereafter.
Currently Linus Media Group Inc. employs 27 people including Linus as the CEO and his Wife as CFO. Over the years they’ve partnered with, and built very strong relationships with big brands like Intel, Thermaltake, Corsair, Asus, and Dbrand among others.
For example, here’s what Thermaltake has to say about the group in their testimonial: “Leave it to Linus Media Group for the perfect balance of professionalism and off-the-wall ideas that can garner growth, brand exposure, and fun.”
Throughout his career, Linus has partnered and collaborated with other YouTubers as well including Marques Brownlee (MKBHD), and iJustine, among others. He also once stated that iJustine is one of his favourite YouTubers.
