Careers at SPK and Associates

SPK is always looking for quality individuals seeking a challenging, dynamic and rewarding work experience. We’re proud of our low turnover rate and our ability to retain top talent over years and years.

Our company excels in service quality, so we require a strong work ethic, high attention to quality, and dedication to providing only the best. At the same time, we encourage creative, entrepreneurial thinking and a sense of ownership in our employees. To that end, we share quarterly profits on top of our competitive base salary. This isn’t a “bonus” unrelated to your contribution nor the promise of a future IPO that never comes. Rather, our system directly rewards you for your performance, sharing our success with you every quarter.
