Spiceworks was founded in 2006 with a mission to simplify the IT workday, and we’ve stayed true to that mission ever since. Our marketplace connects the IT industry to help millions of technology buyers and sellers get their jobs done, every day. More specifically, we help tech professionals find, adopt, and manage the latest technologies while also helping tech brands build, market, and support better products and services.

Here’s how we did it.

They went, they listened… they brought tons of coffee. After in-person visits to the unsung IT pros in Austin, our co-founders had a vision: build an easy-to-use software app to simplify the lives of IT pros. Oh, and make it free. After all, if it worked for Google in the consumer world, why not give it a go in the business world? Since then, we've evolved way beyond a software company. Today, we're a global IT marketplace that connects tech buyers and sellers with the resources they need most.

    I have been working at Spiceworks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I’m fairly new so this review is based on my experience so far, but I’m loving Spiceworks! The people are so, so nice and helpful. The perks and benefits are great as well! I’ve had good and really bad jobs in my career and I can tell you that I’m very happy to have joined the SW team. I don’t dread going into the office everyday and feel at peace for the first time in years! Thumbs up so far!

    Cons

    Its pretty structured, but I personally love structure and process. If you’re used to lots of WFH days, may be a change. WFH may vary from department to department. Again, I don’t think this is really a con because it’s still very flexible and the work life balance is fantastic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
