#SPIRECULTURE

At Spire, we believe that innovation is a team effort and success occurs across cultures, markets, and even space. Our dynamic teams create groundbreaking data solutions that revolutionize markets and we do it every day with eagerness and hard work.

 

We are global

We use our data to solve worldwide problems. The diverse viewpoints, skills, and experiences of our globally distributed team drive our growth. Our technology covers the entire planet, and our market is the entire world. Whether it’s Kansas or Kuala Lumpur, we meet our customers and partners wherever they are.

We are unbounded

We are paradigm-free — consistently raising the bar of performance for ourselves and the measure of excellence for our clients. We approach every challenge head-on, and with vigor, ready to surface the unknown unknowns that hinder progress. For us, nothing is impossible.

We are faster

We ferociously tackle customer problems and move with a sense of urgency. We deliver the right result now, and constantly iterate to improve. We achieve in a week what used to take years. The world is moving faster, and our customers must respond and make decisions more quickly. The stakes could not be higher, and there isn’t a moment to lose.

We are reliable

Our customers trust us for their critical business decisions, and our teammates trust us to deliver the results they need, on time, every time. Whether it’s predicting the position of a ship or the path of a hurricane, we are accountable for our results and consistently deliver excellence.

We are relentless

We embrace the truth that exceptional outcomes are not possible without exceptional effort, and that tenacity is more valuable than just talent. We strive to deliver a superior customer experience, even and especially when that means countless hours of mundane, unglamorous labor.

We are collaborative

Our collective success or failure rests with our ability to work effectively, with courtesy and professionalism, with our customers, our team, partners, regulators, and competitors. We always know our customer, asking questions to understand and learn from them, reading between the lines, and working proactively to deliver the right result for them.

Employee spotlight

“At Spire I’ve had incredible opportunities to work on amazing data solutions and solve complex problems. It’s not always easy, but it is rewarding. Having a satellite in space that I was able to name is pretty cool, too.”

  • Glasgow

    It’s hard to talk about Spire’s Glasgow office culture without mentioning a pop down to the pub for a pint. The team is incredibly close-knit and it helps that Spire rents a large townhouse, in addition to the office, for the constant flow of visiting team members.

  • Boulder

    Nestled under the Flatirons is Spire’s weather team in Boulder. Its quiet and reserved nature is a nice contrast to the open layout of the San Francisco office. Team members often enjoy the local hiking and skiing the area has to offer.

  • San Francisco

    San Francisco is where it all began for Spire. This office has some of the best social lunch runs in the company. It’s not uncommon for Spire to cause a small flashmob at the local grocery store deli or brewery (well dressed in lemur onesies, of course).
