The Rock Star Award recognizes an organization that has experienced a significant achievement resulting in a positive impact on the region. This year, we are pleased to honor SPARC, LLC. SPARC is a software product development company dedicated to creating engaging, forward-thinking technology while keeping their team members at the core of each project. Client industries come from government and commercial sectors, and commercial software products are developed for executive leadership, human resources, big data analytics and mobile markets.
For two consecutive years, SPARC was named by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing software companies in the U.S., and in 2013 was ranked 14th overall on the Inc. 500 list, and first in both the Software and State of South Carolina categories. SPARC has offices in Charleston, SC and in Washington, DC and is expanding services into Canadian and British markets. Known for their commitment to the culture of the company, SPARC employees enjoy flexible work spaces and an atmosphere that is equal parts high-energy, relaxed and creative.
“Our workspace has collaborative “table times” for each team, free Kuerig/soda/snacks, Nerf guns, company-issued 60″ TVs, dogs, RC cars & copters, and music. You won’t find offices, walls, phones, cubes, or shushing – just engaged team members making awesome things…together.
SPARC’s culture didn’t happen overnight. It’s the result of our long-standing belief that if you do what is right, good things will happen.” -SPARC on their corporate culture
In addition to their commitment to culture, SPARC also has a deep commitment to community. They support many charitable causes in the communities where their employees live, work and play. SPARC Gives, their community outreach program, supports charitable giving to programs that align with their culture and core values. Currently SPARC supports such charities as:
American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge
American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life
Chase After a Cure
Goose Creek Dogs
Lowcountry Food Bank
MDA Muscle Walk
Sea Island Habitat for Humanity
Teacher’s Supply Closet
SPARC’s commitment to culture and community help make our region a thriving location, attractive to both a workforce and families looking to call Charleston their home.
