๐Ÿงข Sparkmate > Google ?

Sparkmate is a place where passionate tech people can thrive and do what they love: build new things. Traditional consulting companies, engineering firms and agencies often lack the diligence to provide a hands-on approach to solving problems.

Here, engineers can learn more than anywhere else and they own their projects from A to Z. It's a place where creativity, diversity, and excellence are valued. We all work on new missions every 5 weeks (there's no time to get bored). ๐Ÿ˜‰

Imagine a place:

  • With a convenient homelike atmosphere and new friends around the corner
  • Where there is a flat hierarchy with as little layers as possible
  • Where people have fun doing what they love

Join us to live exciting moments and build crazy things!
