Why Work at Spartz
Come to work every day and feel like you’re building something important. Your work will be seen and used by millions of people. We don’t have the pressures of investors or client-work, so we’re driven by our own motivation to build something awesome and change the world.
Do what you’re best at. First, we’ll work with you to determine your strengths. Then we’ll make sure you’re spending most of your time on activities that complement your strengths.
Work with people who inspire you to be better. We have very high standards. (We are as selective as the top tech companies.) We often receive hundreds of applications before we fill a position. We believe if your teammates don’t bring out the best in you, you’re probably on the wrong team.
Do what you love to do. You spend most of your waking life at work. It is vital that you do something that enhances yourself, and society, on a higher level. We’ll do whatever we can to match your tasks to your interests.
Choose which projects to work on. We have endless opportunities, so you’ll have discretion to choose projects you’ll be passionate about.
We don’t do red tape or office politics. We won’t tolerate backstabbing, taking credit for the work of others, promoting personal agendas over the common good, foot-dragging, whining, gossiping, complaining, mean-spiritedness, pettiness, self-importance, or egotism. We won’t hire people who do these things. And because we’re a small company, we’re able to avoid red tape and the bureaucracies.
We believe your health and family are more important than your job. We wouldn’t hire you unless we knew you were awesome, so we’re flexible when life throws you curveballs. We know you’ll do great work, even if we need to design a creative work schedule for you.
Everyone contributes ideas. Regardless of what department you’re in, it’s part of your job. We’re helping to write the rules of a blindingly fast-paced industry and innovation is the lifeblood of our business. Ideas are celebrated and innovation is everyone’s job here. We believe there’s a better way to do everything.
New to Chicago? We’ll help you get settled. We can show you around the city, help you find a place to live, and even help you move. And you’ll have a circle of friends on day one.
We’re committed to helping you reach your potential. Personal and professional development is a top priority. This is the ideal environment to start your career and begin building the skills that will allow you to pursue your passion professionally. And we put our money where our mouth is: you’ll have an unlimited budget to spend on learning materials.
