Employee Handbook

Hello!

This employee handbook is designed to answer questions that current and prospective employees may have about our employment policies, benefits, perks, hiring process, office policies, etc. The content within applies to Sparksuite and its subsidiaries. Weʼve posted this publicly to promote a culture of transparency and clarity.

Weʼve also open sourced this on GitHub to allow others to contribute and to track the changes weʼve made to these policies over time. Weʼve given it a flexible license so other companies can benefit from our research and work.

If you would like to make a contribution, pull requests on GitHub are encouraged! Weʼd also love to answer any questions or comments you may have, so feel free to reach out.
