Where will you work?
Bluespark is a distributed company. That’s just a fancy way of saying that you can work from anywhere. The only requirement is that you be available for our standard working hours of 9 AM - 12 PM Central U.S.Time (time zone calculator). Most people work from home—wherever that may be—occasionally traveling to client sites, conferences, or trainings. The majority of our clients are based in the U.S.
Who should apply?
People who want to make a difference in the organization they work. People who are interested in building a company that’s bigger than the four walls of a building—a company that spans the globe and believes that its people are at the core of the value we add to the world. People who want to contribute to their team and the open source community. People who embody curiosity, awareness, resoluteness, and empathy—who are flexible, proactive, and driven.
Compensation & Benefits
Health insurance. We cover 100% of your health insurance or 25% of your family’s insurance.
10 days PTO and 8 Paid Holidays. The time does not transfer from year-to-year because we want you to take ALL of it every year. We believe that happy, well-rested people are the best people to work with.
Work from anywhere. Travel around the world or work from the comfort of your home. You just need a stable Internet connection. Flexible schedule. Our schedules are pretty flexible. Need to run an errand in the middle of the day? Totally cool. We have people who put in their eight hours in a single shot. Others who break it up throughout the day.
Reasonable schedules. It’s sad that we even need to list this as a benefit, but we don’t expect more than 40 hours of work in a week. And we don’t do “crunch times” during projects.
Autonomy. A big part of working at Bluespark is being part of a community of expert practitioners. People who actually enjoy what they're doing. Because of that, we actively nurture a culture of connected autonomy—that is, you are the expert and we trust your expertise. We have systems, methods, processes, and best practices, but these are there to help you do your job better—not be yoke that hold you back from doing great work. As such, break the rules, go off script—and tell us what you learned and what we, as a company, can do to improve. Salary commensurate with location, role, and experience.
