I worked at eSpark Learning full-time
I worked at eSpark for almost 7 years. Now that I've been gone from the company for 2 months, I miss it almost every day.
The level of impact we have on students is incredible. In light of some pretty terrible things going on in the world right now, I feel proud to have worked at a company doing serious good in the world.
The people on the team are amazing. And fun! I felt personally and professionally supported by the entire team. David and the management team are people of integrity - honest-to-goodness good people driven to close the achievement gap and have an impact on the lives of children across the US.
I grew a ton in my tenure at eSpark. I would recommend eSpark to anyone, especially someone early in their career looking to have an impact and grow a ton.
Throughout the years, I found that people who were most successful at eSpark enjoyed navigating ambiguity and taking on lots of responsibility. The organizational structure is fairly flat. If you are looking for a more traditional corporate, structured, hierarchical environment, eSpark might not be the right place for you.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at eSpark Learning (Chicago, IL) in May 2016.
* interview with one of the engineers
* interview with the HR
* take-home code challenge
* in-office interview
* meet the team on several occasions
* going to school for observations
* office invitation to meet the team
* The HR, Shannon, was the most organized person ever. She was also very responsive and helpful during the interview process.
