WHY WORK AT SPARK44?

Be Honest.” Do you have a voice that you feel deserves to be heard? In other words, are you BOLD? This is an agency where your input will indeed be heard, and valued. But, is that input valuable, original and challenging? In a word, is it BRAVE? And finally, are you willing to be HONEST? We value individuals who are unafraid to question the status quo, who challenge authority and fight for the best idea, even if it means possibly losing an argument. We here at Spark44 are a tight-knit group. We are the best in our business. And we are good people.
