What Sets Skyhook Apart
• We’re building a better Internet. We are mission-driven to make the Internet (and the world) a better place by pushing the limits of website performance. We’re working hard to build sites that are more creative, higher converting, better ranking, easier to maintain, and more fun to build.
• Family-friendly, flexible environment. Most of us have families, and that means a clean environment, flexible work hours, and supportive coworkers.
• Open vacation policy. We don’t track PTO, and as long as the work is getting done, we’re extremely generous with our time off approvals. We also shut the office down on/around major holidays, including the entire week between Christmas and New Year’s.
• Health insurance. We provide all employees with competitive health insurance and access to health/dental/vision plans for the employee and their family.
• 401k. We match up to 4% of employee contributions to our 401k plan.
• Profit-sharing. When performance targets are met, we share a significant percentage of the profits our company generates with all employees each quarter.
• Hardware & software. We’ll supply you with top-of-the-line creative hardware and software when you start, and we’ll buy you new stuff every three years.
• Exciting projects & clients. We’re selective in our business development processes, actively seeking clients and projects that meet our standards for culture, size/impact, and challenge.
• Team & culture. We’ve worked hard to carefully select managers and team members who are smart, thoughtful, and action-oriented. You will love your coworkers.
