SparkCognition Benefits Overview

SparkCognition offers a combination of benefits + perks that align with our brand and culture. This includes: competitive medical benefits, employer HSA contribution, employer-paid STD & Life Insurance/AD&D, 401k match, 4+ weeks of PTO, and parental leave.

We offer a dynamic workforce policy that is focused on the individual needs of our employees. Through this, we allow each employee to flex their work schedule as needed for important life events, while at the same time ensuring that the organization is supporting collaboration, communication, and a sense of being a part of a team. This also helps ensure we come together in support of those important components of our culture. We didn't just want to launch a hybrid work environment – we wanted to focus on *how* we work not on *where* we work.
