Work @ Skimbox
Skimbox is a Boston-based startup spun out of SoftArtisans, a 15 year-old software company. Overarching mission: identify information that is important to our users, and make sure see that's what they see first. Current output: Skimbox Mail, an intelligent inbox tamer. Our recipe for success: supremely talented employees, lean development, boundless pluck, and a close-knit, collaborative environment.
At Skimbox, we welcome all manner of ideas, beliefs, hobbies, diets, and toaster oven preferences. Most of us work from around 10-6, some of us work from 9-5 or 8-4. We like Agile, though we've been to Niagara. Some of us have our own offices, some of us share offices, some of us work in the open office. There are no hammocks, but there is a nap room. Attending conferences and taking classes is encouraged. Amassing new skills is encouraged. Voicing your opinion is encouraged.

You’ll be part of the development team building out our iOS application. You should definitely know your way around the iOS SDK for building a user-focused, smooth, clean, and beautiful UI. There’s slick animations, new types of UI controls, and giant datasets coming in over the cellular network. If this is your cup of a tea, you’ll feel right at home.
Want to figure out what emails people really want to see? Want to teach a computer how to do it? We’re looking for clever folks who can create a self-improving AI to separate the proverbial email wheat from the chaff. This requires knowing how to write performant, scalable, distributed ML logic that operates on very large datasets. Sounds rad? This is for you.
Full Stack Engineer
Is scaling huge systems your game? Do you love cooking up your own chef recipes? How about working directly on our systems and applications while you’re at it? We’re looking for DevOps folks who know how to run distributed systems, scale them, and write a little code too. Is all this in your bag of tricks? Let us know!
We’re looking for someone to feed and walk our infrastructure to help it grow – and occasionally clean up after it until it’s housebroken. If you know web-scale architectures, and doing things manually makes you cringe a little bit inside, you might be a good fit. While we’re looking for someone skilled, the specific skillset isn’t too important. Languages/applications can be learned; what’s most important for us is someone who is proactive, passionate about technology, loves automation, and hates downtime.
