WHAT WE OFFER

We provide meaningful and engaging work & support the free exchange of ideas. From the first day on the job, you will be encouraged to expand your knowledge. This includes getting familiar with our working environment, with a focus on assimilating as much know-how as possible. Within the dedicated 3 months, you will take part in an internal project, which you will code from scratch, with the support of a dedicated mentor.

The project will be part of a complex ecosystem, where communication must be ensured via APIs. It will be a sandbox inspired by a real-world scenario, designed to familiarize you with some of the core technologies and processes we use here at Sparktech, and will act as a hands-on tutorial for real-world projects.

  • You will be working on a project designed to be very similar to our usual work.

  • It’s the proper environment to discover continuous learning opportunities in your everyday activity.
  • You’ll have the chance to add your own voice, your particular mix of flavors to our innovative team.
  • You’ll have the opportunity to connect with passionate people in our open and friendly environment.
  • If you give your best and reach great results, we offer the possibility to continue working with us.

We aim to make you feel like you belong in our team. To this end, we intend to work out a hybrid working plan (meaning partly from home, and partly from the office). The schedule is flexible, and we are interested in finding the solution that works best for both parties.
