Skimlinks Careers: We're Hiring!

Skimlinks is one of the most well known and fastest growing startups in the UK. Headquartered in London with offices in NYC, we’re 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 and gain a lot of insight into their audiences. We work with publishers across more than 1.5 million websites globally to make their lives easier by automating their affiliate marketing activities.


Our team comes from all corners of the globe and all walks of life, but there is one common thread across all Skimlinkers…
We take pride in everything we do.

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, DynamoDB, MongoDB, Redis and Ruby.
