Much like a big family, our home base is Melbourne, Australia but our members are spread around the globe. We’ve been fully remote since day one.
Our remote-friendly style means everyone at Sked works in the way that works best for them. Happy days. Happy team. It also means we can meet the needs of our customers across all timezones. Everybody wins!
We want you to have one rad place to create, store, find and use your visual marketing content online — and easily share that work with your team. Our customer and team-centric values, shape the way we communicate, work and build these tools together for you every day.
We’re obsessed with what you go through trying to pull off killer visual marketing campaigns. We listen, think ahead and build what you’ll need in 6 – 12 month’s time.
Best in breed products don’t have to be for a single type of customer – enterprise and small-to-medium business is possible. We’re true originals working on new solutions that help us serve a broad market.
Data and metrics help tell us if we’re doing the right thing but don’t show everything – we listen to what you say to see and respond to the whole picture.
Sked (originally Schedugram) was born out of frustration and necessity. It all started way back in 2013 when founder Hugh Stephens was consulting for an agency, looking at what parts of their work were inefficient and costing way too much time and money.
Hugh found that posting content to Instagram for the agency’s clients was the biggest time waster. They had people sitting logging in and out of phones, emailing photos to themselves, and copy/pasting captions to post – for the entire day.
Why? Because Instagram wouldn’t let users schedule posts to be published automatically. You had to do it all yourself – logging in and out of accounts, carrying multiple phones, and responding to reminders at all hours to post your content.
There had to be a better way. So Hugh came up with an innovative, yet old-school, system that used a pool of phones in Melbourne, Australia to post for you … just like you would by hand. The first version of Sked was built at end of 2013 and launched into beta in January 2014.
Initially, we were just trying to help out our friends and colleagues within the social media industry, but it became obvious that the demand was a lot bigger. Soon we had customers on every continent, ranging in size from small cafés to global brands.
Times change and although we started out as a ‘post it for you’ service, we’ve grown into so much more than that. Now, we’re a full-featured visual Instagram planner and scheduler that helps you share your story through photos and videos so you can engage with your followers and grow your audience. But we’re not done yet…
We want Sked to become your home for visual marketing. We’ve always been different to other platforms because we focus on the visual aspects of creating an attractive Instagram feed, and we have new features in the pipeline that will make Sked even better. We’re talking powerful team collaboration tools and other cool stuff like that.
And not just for Instagram, but also Facebook and Twitter (coming soon), too. Don’t worry, we’re still focused on being the number one Instagram scheduling platform. But we also want to help you run successful visual marketing campaigns across all your social media channels.
Our customers say good things because our team feels great about the work they do. Your goal to nurture deep and lasting connections through social is our goal too.
It shows in everything we do and how our team speaks about working here:
After wearing several hats in the marketing domain for almost a decade, I found my first remote role at Sked. I am constantly amazed by how deeply the entire team cares about our customers and work with them to provide the best possible experience. When I’m not at work, I enjoy pottery, solo travel and helping with animal rescue.
At Sked, I genuinely feel that my work has real impact. Both professionally and socially. Since Day 1, I’ve been encouraged to build and maintain my passion projects whilst having the opportunity to learn new disciplines which further helps our customers solve problems. When I’m not working, you’ll probably find me spending time with family, learning Piano and playing video games.
I work with clients every day and help them save time to do the things they love, this is just one of the many reasons I enjoy working at Sked. It motivates me to see how dedicated our team is to providing the absolutely best customer service, and the best product. When I’m not working, I enjoy playing basketball, watching movies, and working on my car.
I’m working in software development for over a decade and am excited to get to work with these amazing people every day. What we have managed to grow at Sked is rare. Flexible remote work and transparent values, which facilitate everyone’s working habits and help us to deliver the best for our customers every day.
Working with this amazing company and team has been one of the best experiences I’ll be carrying for the rest of my life. It has been a privilege! Each day at work, as imperfect as it could get, we all strive to do our best in order to help achieve the best outcome possible, and when this happens and you see customers happy – now that is priceless! This is one of our core values, taking care of clients the best possible way in a cooperative effort. One of the things I envision for Sked is excellence in what we do and the service we provide but being very happy doing it along the way and not because we are pressured to do so, but because we want to, and the reason for that is because we see one another on the same level. Working with Sked also made it possible to take good care of what is precious to us that matter the most, our family – because basically, that’s what we are at Sked, A Family
At Sked, we are fortunate to belong to a team of extremely diverse individuals who still possess a sense of shared values and genuine camaraderie to deliver an exceptional user experience every day. It is very rare to have this environment when working out of a traditional office, much less so when working remotely! Everyone at Sked is truly passionate about building the best possible product for our users and it’s a privilege to be able to contribute to this vision while also learning a ton of new stuff along the way.
Since joining Sked in April 2015 I have had many opportunities to develop both my sales and customer service skills. Sked gives me the opportunity to get in contact with people from all over the world. I am calling USA, Australia and Asia in the morning, Europe in the afternoon – helping our customers how to make best use of the platform. I have found the company and the people I work with to be amazing. This is a group of very talented, intelligent, dedicated and friendly people. I have worked for some great companies previously, but none of them can match the teamwork environment at Sked.Truly the best!
