Technology is at the core of our company. Building the hardware, maintaining the network and data centers your content and emails gets delivered on are the big ticket items in this column.

Marketing

We keep our marketing overheard to a strict minimum. Our marketing operates heavily on word of mouth, direct social media outreach and referrals through our Affiliate Program. Our philosophy is unique in that we don't just do marketing solely through paid ads. Rather, we look at entire industries and propose ideas on what we can do for our customers and how to reach new channels organically.

Software

A web services platform requires a lot of software to host, manage, backup and secure data. We develop a lot of the software on our hosting platform in-house. This means proprietary software to give you the very best. There is also some very good software out there that we license and include as part of your service with us.

Profit

Every business requires profit to exist, scale and grow. Everything left over from the other departments goes directly into the profit column. We don't pull any profit out though, we think it's wiser to grow and provide you better service, so we reinvest profit right back into the business. We are relentless in our pursuit to giving you the best and most reliable platform out there for your website, email and online presence.

"Great company and people, sometimes too fast"

Systems Engineer in Toronto, ON

I have been working at Skystra full-time (3-4 years)

Pros

Really amazing company. The work we do, and the team we have.. it blows out everywhere else I've worked in my life. Very few managers, lots of learning, and a team that has each others' backs, Love it

Cons

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the management team at Skystra. I just wish we'd slow down just a bit, take a breather. We're always going at breakneck speeds and if I was a bit younger, maybe I'd like that more, but a little bit more calmness can be refreshing.

Advice to Management

Mentioned it already.. love everyone, love the team, love the company, just let's go a little bit slower on all of our projects and initiatives. I need a breather.

"Best Customer Service Team Ever!"

Customer Service Specialist in Santa Monica, CA

I have been working at Skystra full-time (3-4 years)

Pros

Working in Skystra's customer service team is like re-learning customer service from the ground up, their obsession with excellent proactive service makes it a complete joy to work and speak with customers, people in the team are genuinely happy and customers are too, so it makes everything a wonderful working environment. Being able to work remote gives me a lot of flexibility to balance work and life.

Cons

Because so much of the customer service culture relies on having good judgement, sometimes it's not super clear what course of action should be taken.

Advice to Management

More opportunities to meet members from other departments and also see how our projects allow the company to grow.
