It started with a simple idea.

We wanted to help social benefit organizations leverage technology in order to more effectively deliver on their mission to improve the quality of life for people, families, and communities.

Now, over a decade later, we still deliver on that idea every day.

Mission & Vision

At Sparkrock, we all come to work every day because we are inspired by how our customers
make the world a better place.

We’re a passionate team of die-hard developers, analytical accountants, detail-oriented project managers, caring support analysts, creative marketers, responsive sales reps, food lovers, runners, cyclists, parents, millennials, previous social sector staff, and impact-driven problem solvers dedicated to developing technology, products, and services that enable you to serve more people with less
effort, stress, and expense.

Our backgrounds are diverse, but we’re united by a common mission. We believe when we come together with our customers, we create a "spark" for the greater good.

Leadership Team

Sparkrock was founded in 2003 by Nicola Dickinson and James Faw – and was originally known as Altus Dynamics. Our first customer was the MacArthur Foundation based in Chicago with 150 staff distributing over $200million worth of grants to programs worldwide annually. We now have over 25,000 users on our solution serving over 7 million people through thousands of different programs.

People & Culture

What's it like to be a Sparkie? Aside from being awesome, it's energizing, fun, motivating, and inspiring. We're a group of uber-talented, tech-savvy, purpose driven people - fueled by organic fair-trade coffee and de-stressed by office yoga - who always keep one thing at the core of everything we do: making it easier for our customers to deliver on their mission.

We know that our people are our competitive advantage. We're the best at what we do which means we're selective when it comes to who we hire - we focus on fit and aptitude over years of experience - and pride ourselves on attracting the brightest minds in the industry.

The lifeblood of Sparkrock is our people. As a tight-knit A-player team, we’re devoted to a culture that cultivates, and work that works.
