So Who Are We?
We're a small, diverse engineering team seeking to change the Enterprise Communications industry. Have you ever had a bad experience with your HR group? Been unable to find information in a dreary portal? Confused about initiatives your company is undertaking? You're not alone. Most internal communications haven't kept up with the life-changing technology innovations that have occurred in recent years. With our dedicated team of technologists, creatives, and strategists we've set out to modernize employer-to-employee communications. We believe life at work can be better than it is, and we're on a multi-year mission to improve everyone's relationship with their employer.
At GuideSpark we've created a new SaaS offering that enables employers to drive organizational impact by giving employees the right information at the right time, while personalizing and orchestrating that information to achieve the best-possible outcomes. That offering, GuideSpark Communicate Cloud, is rapidly growing in adoption. In a very short time we have built a tremendous roster of A-List clients from Fortune 1000 companies (e.g. Adobe) to fast growing startups (e.g. SurveyMonkey). Our fast-paced, entrepreneurial culture is driving triple digit growth and we're looking for great people to join our team!
As if a successful product wasn't enough, we're fun people, too. We work and play together, everyone is welcome to bring their personality to work to add color and texture to the growing symphony!
