Careers at SPK and Associates

SPK is always looking for quality individuals who want to join a vibrant, fun, really smart team of people. With few exceptions, most of our employees stay with us for years and years. We will challenge you, reward you, and treat you as part of our family… and we take that family part seriously.

You will join a company that absolutely excels in the quality of service it provides to customers. You will need to have a strong ethic of delivering high quality work. You will be encouraged to think creatively, entrepreneurially, and treat SPK like you are part owner.

SPK shares its profits every quarter with all our employees. You are directly rewarded for your great work, not just by your salary, but through the distribution of company profits each financial quarter. Unlike a corporation, where your “bonus” is unrelated to your contribution; or a start-up, where you can wait and wait for the IPO that never happens; at SPK, you’ll share in SPK’s success every quarter.
