Skupos is the data hub for the convenience retail industry. Retailers, distributors, and brands all convene on the Skupos platform to create value from previously disparate and hard-to-obtain data.

An Insider's view of Skupos

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Life at Skupos provides employees with a balance of being relaxed and autonomous, but we all work really hard & go above and beyond to get our jobs done. If you need a breather, it's cool to take a break and play some ping pong. There is also a solid sense of camaraderie & collaboration throughout the office that extends across the different teams.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As the Salesforce Admin, I am constantly working with all departments across the company. Collaborating w/ this many people requires that I am easily accessible to both SF & Denver offices. To ensure this happens, I set up weekly meetings w/ each team to discuss their needs, as well as a meeting for everyone to attend so we're all on the same page.

What are some social events your company does?

From our Friday team lunches to happy hour on our patio, Skupeeps are always interacting. We have an annual company retreat, quarterly department outings and tons of karaoke! Each holiday we have our own celebration for anyone to join! My favorite part about Skupos is the constant social interaction with one another and our close family dynamic.
