We love making videos, so every so often we like to star in them too... 

Life at GuideSpark!






Giving Back

We feel that it’s incredibly important to give back to the community, so the team switches off computers, shuts the doors and heads out to the streets a couple of times each year for GuideSpark Days of Service.

Second Harvest & Boston Food Bank, 2015

Nearly 50 Sparks took time out of their busy work day to give back to the community by volunteering at local food banks, Second Harvest and Greater Boston Food Bank.



RAFT (Resource Area For Teaching), 2015

We also visited our local RAFT center to help pack ducational activity packs for kids in the area. 


Acterra Volunteer Day, 2014

Some members of the GuideSpark team spent their Volunteer Day getting their hands dirty helping Acterra keep the planet healthy at Byrne Preserve in Los Altos. We had some fun in the sun while helping a great cause! 


Juma Ventures Community Day at the Park, 2015, 2014 & 2013

Members of the GuideSpark team have had a great time volunteering for Juma Ventures at SF Giants games at AT&T Park for the last three summers! What a great way to spend the day — bonding with the team and selling ice cream for an amazing cause at the best ballpark in the country. 


Habitat for Humanity, Feb 2013

The team had a blast spending the day with Habitat for Humanity. We split into two groups at different sites and worked together installing doors, building brand new window sills, and caulking walls to help build up homes for low-income families in our community. And we were thrilled to send a check for a little over $1,800 to the SF Bay Area chapter of Habitat for Humanity, as a result of our fundraising efforts.

    I have been working at GuideSpark full-time


    The people who work st GuideSpark are some of the friendliest I've ever met. Nearly everyone will go out of his or her way to help out and support one another's success. Coworkers not only co-exist, but are friends and feel like family. When you work with smart, fun, determined and innovative coworkers, the job seems much better. The company itself is growing and doing well. Things look bright in the future for shareholders, which I think a lot of employees forget. When you look at the big picture, there is hard work involved in growing toward success. The leadership team is experience and qualified. Also just added an unlimited PTO policy, which affirms trust that employees are working hard and should take time off to recharge.


    A lot of people talk about pay and I think this is a legitimate concern. The company is conservative when it comes to pay, but I think that comes from the top down. In order to grow and maintain a secure foundation, there aren't a lot of the "extras" you'll find in the Valley (no game room, massage chair or on-site launder). Working from home would be a HUGE plus in this company, but that doesn't seem to be across the horizon.

    Advice to Management

    I think if employees were given the option to work from home one day a week, it would boost morale and show appreciate and trust that employees are committed to their jobs. I also think that upper management needs to really pay attention and build relationships with the "average joes" of the company and communicate in a way that all employees can relate to - what applies to them and how decisions affect their everyday lives.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GuideSpark (San Francisco, CA) in July 2015.


    Started out with a meet and greet Received an on-site interview. Interviewed with 4 ppl. Two senior level and two employees working the same position I was applying for. I felt like the interview went well. The two current sales employees, to be honest I felt like I was interviewing them. Either way it seems like a good team, but tough atmosphere.
