GuideSpark is the future of employee communications. Our robust employee communications platform, which includes customized, engaging, and cost-effective videos, allows HR executives to toss out the stacks of pamphlets and eliminate time-consuming seminars, and offers a new way to educate employees on complex HR topics like benefits, health care reform, and compensation programs. The platform is accessible from any device, including mobile, and provides an interactive user experience and deep analytics on user engagement. GuideSpark, named to Forbes “Most Promising Companies” list, serves hundreds of enterprise customers and more than 1 million employees. By transforming the traditional methods of employee communications, GuideSpark significantly increases employee engagement, satisfaction and retention, while decreasing overall HR costs.
GuideSpark, recently named on Forbes‘ list of America’s Most Promising Companies, is a fast growing, well-funded startup that is revolutionizing how employers engage, communicate and train their employees. 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).
As well as our headquarters (located in Silicon Valley, CA) we recently opened a permanent sales office in Boston, MA to meet the market’s growing need for their next-generation employee communications solution, and to better serve our expanding roster of East Coast customers.
We are growing rapidly, and as a result GuideSpark offers employees great opportunities for upward mobility, working across and in different departments and learning new skills.
Our fast-paced, entrepreneurial, and fun culture is driving triple-digit growth and we’re looking for great people to join our team. Check out the roles currently available in the Glassdoor jobs section, or visit the GuideSpark website.

GuideSpark prides itself on recruiting the best people to join our team, and empowering them to make their own decisions. We have built a respectful workplace where people are treated fairly and highly motivated to succeed. We like the best and the brightest here, but we try not to take ourselves too seriously.
We work hard, but we play hard too!
The team loves to burn off steam and have fun together - we have a company softball team (who made the championship round this season!), a running club and impromptu push-up and plank competitions.
But if running around isn't your thing, we also have company celebration parties and picnics, talent shows, cook-offs, outings to sports matches, birthday cakes, staff lunches, fun awards, pie-eating contests, volunteer days (see "Community" tab) and so much more.
Check out more photos on our Glassdoor page below, or follow us on Facebook to see what we've been up to lately.
We are certain that you’d be very happy here — see for yourself:
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.
Acterra Volunteer Day, June 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, May 2014 & Aug 2013
Members of the GuideSpark team had a great time volunteering for Juma Ventures at SF Giants games at AT&T Park this year and in 2013! 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.
GuideSpark is proud of the awards we have received thanks to our rapid growth and great company culture.

Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at GuideSpark.Interview Details
Phone screening, then an online assessment based on the required skills, then a phone interview, then a round of interviews with potential coworkers and supervisors at the office. Mostly behavioral questions, but make sure to be able to describe the position back to them and have watched some of their videos.
Staff was all very nice, but could do a better job of letting candidates know what's going on (hard to get enough from their answers without feeling bothersome with questions).
All contact (other than interviews) was done in email, which I was thankful for (hate waiting by the phone and playing phone tag).Interview QuestionsNo OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
