Accelerating research through software


Who we are

Sandbox is Northeastern's student-led software consultancy building software for researchers 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

Be Kind

We see kindness as the first step in building an inclusive, supportive, and productive culture. We believe in giving kind and constructive feedback and don't tolerate brilliant jerks.

Learn Together

We aim to grow as developers by seeking technically challenging and interesting projects. We pair program frequently and stop to teach one another new things, even if it slows us down.

Make an Impact

We build projects that make a real impact on our clients and their work. With a pragmatic attitude towards software development, we're able to deliver solutions that are put into use.

“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.
