Simply put; Skimlinks is a big data technology and product startup, building cool stuff, at scale.

We build highly transactional, high throughput platforms that connect publishers, merchants, and audiences; which allows some of the most popular sites in the world to efficiently and easily monetise their curated journalistic content. We partner with companies like Huffington Post, The New York Times, The Independent and Hearst to diversify their content monetisation strategies; which helps them create more of the journalistic content that we all consume and enjoy, without relying upon additional banner advertising.

We’re also leveraging our massive amount of anonymous behavioural  data to create greenfield data platforms. We employ a diverse array of advanced Machine Learning and Classical Statistical methodologies to interrogate our dizzying amounts of data. Though our platforms, we have a direct view of the browsing and shopping behaviours of over 650 million users; amassing over 1TB of data daily across over a billion incoming events.

On the front-end, We are building beautiful user interfaces on top of a world-class, big data platform. A single page analytics suite to give our merchants and publishers actionable information about campaign performance, user engagement and conversion. We are helping merchants and publisher connect to run more successful campaigns and better monetise content.
