About Us

SparkPlug is realigning the economics of the retail and restaurant industries to make every employee an owner. In CPG and service industry verticals like beauty, outdoor gear, and full-service restaurants, customers rely on the product recommendation of point-of-purchase experts up to 92% of the time (be it a beauty consultant, bartender, or a member of the Geek Squad). SparkPlug allows brands to directly reward these key influencers for every sale they generate with cash via gamified commissions, contests, and goals. We drive more revenue for brands, improve employee performance for retailers, and empower frontline workers across the world with fair compensation and economic equality, all based on the sales revenue they generate each day.

We’re a San Francisco, CA-based company hiring for a ground-floor sales team member to help us enter the hyper-growth phase. We’re backed by top VCs and angels like TenOneTen Ventures, the inventors of Google AdSense, Jason Calacanis, and the CEO of Foursquare, and we’re working to revolutionize the future of the nearly 20 trillion-dollar global brick and mortar retail market. We solve problems for some of the most interesting consumer product verticals around, and we need product-obsessed rockstars who can efficiently, creatively, and systematically establish trust with prospective customers to help them reap the incredible benefits of using SparkPlug!
