Skift deciphers and defines trends for global CEOs and CMOs across travel, dining, and wellness sectors through a combination of news, research, conferences, and marketing services. Our Core Values:
We launched in August 2012, with the big ambition of becoming the daily homepage of the global travel industry. Our underlying premise was to be fanatically focused on documenting and helping the travel industry understand the changing traveler behavior. From the two founders who launched the company out of their bedrooms to now 60 people on the Skift team in a light-filled New York City office, we have grown into the biggest business intelligence brand in travel.
We raised about $2.5 million from marquee seed investors and venture groups, and three years later we are a multi-product, multi-platform, profitable and fast growing company.

Skift is an immersive, fun learning environment and everything that comes with a fast growing company. But most of us are family people too and have full lives outside of work, so we know, live and actively encourage more work life balance. We are building a humane company that wants the best out of people in the hours they give to the company. So we enjoy a flex holiday-policy, flex-work hours if needed, market-friendly benefits, competitive salary, and most of all, learning with the smartest business information team on the planet.
We live our brand. From the inside out. Skifters reflect the culture and world in which we live. We’re socially conscious, global citizens. We are proud to have a 50/50 gender split and proud that we actively diversify our work environment--race, creed, color, orientation, nationality and lifestyle.
