Job Description

Our obsessive focus on geospatial technology makes us a somewhat unique company. In fact, most of our work is with other technology companies. They look to us as expert partners who can lend them expertise that’s not easily found in-house. We listen carefully, are platform-agnostic, and look to afford the most value we can to our clients. To make this possible, each of our staff members has a high degree of autonomy. This allows them to do what they must—instead of being bound to tradition or bureaucracy.

The People and Culture Generalist will be responsible for acting as the first point of contact for employees and external partners for all HR-related inquiries. The People and Culture Generalist will work with the Admin and Operations team in support of Sparkgeo’s HR Operations, focusing on driving a positive employee experience.

Our ideal candidate is organized, self-directed and likes to work collaboratively.
