We are always looking for talented people in the following roles...
Who is Bluespark?
Bluespark is a self-governing organization. We’re a partnership of passionate experts working to build a 21st century business.
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 and 25% of your family’s insurance.
25 Days PTO. 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.
Winter Holiday Shutdown. Bluespark completely shuts down the last week of December. It’s the end of the year, we should enjoy ourselves a bit.
Sick time as needed—does not count against your PTO.
Parental Leave. 12 weeks of maternity, paternity, and adoption leave for new parents broken up as follows: 8 weeks of 100% paid parental leave within 12 months after the birth of the child. You can extend this period with PTO. The last four weeks are a transition period where you work half-time and are paid 50% of your salary. Eligibility begins after 1 year of employment, limited to once per year.
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. 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.
