Our story

Spartez was founded in 2007 by a group of teammates who dreamt about a place where the passion of people matters, where people care and where customers are in the center. We dreamt about a place where strong values are actually followed by people instead of just being talked about. We believed that a group of engaged people in such a place can make a difference and deliver something valuable together.

Our values

  • Don’t fuck the customer

    Always be honest with customers, they fund you and are your greatest treasure. Care for them, respond promptly and keep them in the loop. They are people just like you.

  • Be the change you seek

    Don't complain. If you don't like something - change it. Implement the change by yourself, drive it or just flag it, propose a better solution and help us improve. Don't ask for permission. Use your common sense and act. Respect and help challengers, be constructive and selfless when opposing a change.

  • Open company, no bullshit

    Assume that everything you do and say is public. Our pay bands, current sales figures, strategies, challenges, everything is available to everyone within the company. All your decisions related to products are public by default, unless they contain customer sensitive data. Whenever you present your point of view - use concrete facts, reports and statistics. All of us at Spartez don’t like to use words like “some”, “most of”, “many”, etc

  • Great place to work

    Be a part of and create an awesome working environment that people truly enjoy working in. Learn from your smart and motivated colleagues and take care of them like you would of family. Focus on delivering customer delight by avoiding or cutting through corporate bullshit, politics and where possible, meetings.

  • Simplicity

    As few rules as possible. Simple is better, though harder to achieve. When faced with a choice, avoid complexity at all costs. When in doubt, KISS!

  • Our core values define our identity. These five principles are at the very foundation of who we are and what we do. Follow us on our social media and see how we live by qualities each day.
