Careers at Skylight
Why Join Skylight
We are a fast growing, venture-backed startup modernizing the home renovation process from design through construction. We are looking for intelligent and driven people who have a passion for participation and execution in an entrepreneurial environment. We move fast, accomplish a lot and every employee has the opportunity to make an impact and help shape the future of an ambitious company!
Skylight places a high value on building a diverse team, and a key goal for us is achieving gender parity and a culturally diverse team. Our company HQ and customers are in the San Francisco Bay area but most of our team is based out of Toronto. We occasionally work together in person, but we primarily work remotely via video conference, which is a big part of how we remain highly productive across the team.
We do not like to brag, but we are very proud of our talented team and how much they have accomplished. Our team truly believes that we are a great place to work so we graciously accept our Great Place to Work certification.

I like working on something that actually touches the real world. The houses we work on today will outlast any piece of software released today.
Everyone is so invested in what we are doing — that sort of passion for our work is infectious and makes me proud to come to work each morning.
At Skylight the culture is outstanding, starting at the top from the executive team and reflected throughout the entire organization. All individuals with different backgrounds, experience levels and skill sets are given autonomy, the opportunity to take on new challenges and the tools to advance in their careers. I am extremely thankful I made the leap from a traditional construction career to such an innovative, technology based company.
Being able to work alongside passionate and smart people, to find and fix problems that relate directly to critical areas of the business, provides a very rewarding environment to work in! I love that I am able to tangibly see how my work helps turn a homeowner’s vision into life!
Working at Skylight is waking up everyday to solve intellectually stimulating problems with the most motivated and smart individuals who truly own their work and empower others to bring their best ideas and self to work.
I love working in this startup environment because I am learning something new everyday. It feels fantastic to be part of a diverse and talented team, and to use technology to revolutionize the customer experience in the home renovation industry. The cherry on top is that I am much more productive in my workday and personal life as a result of being able to work remotely.
