Skimlinks is an award-winning, mature tech startup headquartered in London and an office in San Francisco. We are known for having disrupted the online content monetization space and have become leaders in the industry. We deliver tools, technology and services that allow online publishers (blogs/ websites/ forums) to earn some serious cash from their content. We work with nearly 40,000 online publishers globally (Conde Nast, Hearst, AOL, Gawker..)and make their lives easier by automating their affiliate marketing activities.


Our engineering department is headquartered in London. We are a small, dynamic, language agnostic team that drives over 20 billion API requests a month across 1.5 million active websites. We program in functional, non-functional, SQL, No-SQL and our infrastructure is globally load-balanced across 6 different AWS zones. That makes for a challenging, big-data driven environment! We are continuously tackling cutting-edge technical conundrums and are innovating and learning every step of the way.

Our engineers work across a tech stack that includes: Python, Clojure, PHP, Go, Javascript, Java, MySQL, Backbone.js, Requirejs, Highcharts, Hadoop (Pig + Hive), AWS, Clojure, DynamoDB, MongoDB, Redis and Ruby.

What it's like to work at Skimlinks? Lots of companies talk about culture, we talk about Skimlove - the core values that we look for in each and every hire we make. We believe a good company is full of good people: ethical, caring, sincere, passionate, with loads of personality and a sense of humour. We welcome creativity and quirkiness. We want people who question the status quo and look for innovative ways to solve problems. We appreciate input and ideas from all of our colleagues.

Some of the benefits of working with Skimlinks ? Our annual festive season get-away/ mystery tour (recent trips include Rotterdam and Ljubljana). Our summer party. Our monthly birthday extravaganzas...Any excuse for a party really! Skimbledon, our annual ping-pong tournament (we have a sound-proofed table tennis room in the office to minimize the disruption!). There are also weekly poker showdowns, regular local football league games, pub quiz teams...We are a pretty competitive crew! There are daily battles amongst team members to wrestle control of the music selection on Spotify. Monthly free massages and a regular nail service in-office (Manlycures for the guys are on offer!) We host meet-ups, brown bag lunches, product demos and have dedicated training time set aside for each and every team member (Skimovation time) There is also the office beer fridge, catered lunches and regular office trips to the local pubs to wind down after a busy week.
