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. We’ve posted this publicly to promote a culture of transparency and clarity.

Our handbook is open sourced on GitHub to track the changes we’ve made to these policies over time. We’ve given it a flexible license so other companies can benefit from our research and work.

If you have any questions or comments, we’d love to answer them, so feel free to reach out.
