Accelerating research through software


Who we are

Sandbox is a student organization at Northeastern University that accelerates research by building custom software applications to enable data collection, visualization, and more. We work closely with researchers across many disciplines to help them best leverage computation in their work.

Why sandbox

For a researcher that wants software built, finding the right student for the job is a challenge. Sandbox works by assembling a team of dedicated, talented students who have the right skill sets to get the job done. We're committed to finishing projects and are determined to leave a real impact.

Our Core Values

Teamwork

We firmly believe that together, we can achieve more. Working in teams allows us to pair program and do thorough code reviews to ensure that we are delivering cleaner and more reliable solutions faster than any one of us could on our own.

Excellence

Our members are hardworking, quick learning programmers and designers. We aim to excel at everything we do, whether it's the software we develop, the relationships we build with clients, or the culture we foster.

Growth

Students that join us become more experienced, discover their interests within computer science, and share their expertise with one another. We embrace each other's mistakes and find strength in asking each other for help.

“The brilliant and diligent engineers of Sandbox are, without exaggeration, indispensable to my research. I came to them with a challenging problem, and they delivered a solution that is twice as professional as I'd hoped, in half the time I'd expected. To any scientists in need of computational expertise: look no further than Sandbox.
