Skookum is a digital innovation and transformation consultancy that helps organizations leverage software and the latest technologies to grow revenue, operate efficiently and deliver breakthrough customer experiences.
Our founders teamed up to focus on a mission, which for them held more promise and purpose: to work alongside innovative clients in growing organizations in order to solve their most pressing and complex digital business challenges. Getting started wasn’t easy, but with fierce resolve, an entrepreneurial spirit and a quest for quality, Skookum was born.
Today, those same principles: relentless motivation to succeed, a deep commitment to clients and grit, unite a team of talented business, design and technology professionals around a strong set of values focused on providing clients what they need.
It’s only fitting that the name “Skookum” by definition means: brave, strong and marked by excellence in quality. It defines our culture and our unrelenting promise to those we work with. We thrive on the challenge to amaze and delight our clients.
