We were bored of non-senses engineering jobs, so we built Sparkmate!
We believe in ambitious entrepreneurs to tackle today and tomorrow challenges. We are their (Spark)Mates in this journey, transforming their ideas into outstanding products as quickly as possible.
We are a tribe with a wide range of skills, and we build products in matters of weeks rather than months, from fully digital to fully physical products, including complex IoT.
