SparkFun Employees

Join Our Team!

Since 2003, SparkFun has been helping turn ideas into reality – whether you’re creating a smart weather station, exploring the frontier of machine learning, building a robot for school or prototyping your first (or tenth) product.

No matter your vision or skill level, our open source components, resources and online tutorials are designed to broaden access to innovative technology and make the road to a finished project shorter.

How do we do it?

  1. Get emerging tech into the hands of the masses - the more people using it, the more brilliant ideas rise to the surface
  2. Design and manufacture dev boards and ecosystems that support rapid prototyping and save major time
  3. Develop stellar documentation for the products we produce - from tutorials, to sample code, to videos...our GitHub repository is second to none

Our Values
People First

People First

Our people are the driving force that keep the lights turned on, and we value each other as a team and family, not just as individuals. We’re committed to supporting the personal and professional growth for our employees however we can.

SparkFun accountability

Accountability

It’s important to us that everyone at SparkFun knows what we’re working toward – that means regular updates on company goals, progress, and how each person fits into the plan. We trust ourselves and each other to take responsibility for our contribution, while allowing for inevitable shortfalls and course-correction.

SparkFun respect

Respect

We do our daily best to live by the Golden Rule, which means treating everyone we encounter with empathy and kindness. This practice, to us, extends naturally to our environment, and we do our part to respect our excellent planet with comprehensive sustainability, solar power and waste recycling programs.

SparkFun Transparency

Transparency

SparkFun has a long, proud history of sharing as much as possible about what goes on behind our walls. We believe in honest and direct feedback, and have an open door policy – we encourage equal and respectful discussion and questions, regardless of title, at any time.

SparkFun innovation

Quality & Innovation

At SparkFun we have both the privilege and obligation to create cool s**t. We facilitate creative freedom for all employees, make and test products in house, and are always considering ways to make products and processes better. After all, if you’re going to do something, do it well.

Our Culture

It’s in our name - we’re here to have fun. In addition to the thrill we get from playing with electronics every day, we also bring our dogs to work, gather around the office kegs at the end of the day, enjoy the incredible Colorado summers together at Friday BBQs and take turns scaling the climbing wall in our gym. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.
