Perks and Programs

We asked SingleStone to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • All Hands in the Community: "All Hands in the Community" describes our firm-wide community service efforts. Since inception in 2016, we've hosted a donation drive for a local homeless organization, sold cookies at a "Cookies for Kids Cancer" bake sale, filled backpacks with school supplies, and launched our first annual charity corn hole tournament.
  • Cornhole for a Cause: One of the awesome ideas that came out of our "All Hands in the Community" initiative was to host a charity corn hole tournament. We saw the event as a great opportunity to raise money and awareness for a local non-profit. This years beneficiary was Sportable - a local non-profit that providing sporting opportunities to those with physical and visual disabilities. Since our first event in 2017, we've raised almost $15,000 for local charities!
  • Cheers to 20 Years: 2017 marked SingleStone's 20th anniversary. To celebrate this milestone event, our Senior Leaders invited our entire team, and a guest, to spend the entire weekend at the Primland resort in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Each guest was invited to a country-western themed welcome dinner, followed by a day full of hiking, ATV riding, tree climbing, golf and spa activities, all compliments of SingleStone. We closed out the weekend with a celebratory dinner where we ate, danced and toasted 20 successful years as a firm. It was a weekend for the record books!
  • SmartDollar Financial Wellness: In late 2017, SingleStone began offering employees, at no cost to them, SmartDollar. SmartDollar gives our employees a step-by-step plan to eliminate debt, save for emergencies, and retire with confidence. This came on the heels of a Financial Wellness Series that we hosted last year. We agree with SmartDollar - happier, healthier employees lead to happier, healthier workplaces.
  • SingleStone in Six: This year we launched "SingleStone in Six," after receiving feedback from our team that they wanted more information on the financial health of our firm. Sent monthly, our CEO summarizes - in six bullets - important financial details with the team. He highlights recent wins, upcoming opportunities and notes changes in our sales pipeline. We also use this communication as a way to regularly share updates on important team and organizational changes.
  • Demo Days: As part of our strategic planning process this year, we saw a need to improve the way we communicated the status of our internal strategic projects. We wanted to provide a forum for our teams to collect feedback and incorporate learnings, something that had been missing in prior years. Prior to launching "Demo Days", internal projects were not visible to anyone other than the individuals directly working on them. To solve for this, we began hosting bi-monthly "Demo Days" which gave project teams an opportunity to report out, demo progress and collect feedback on their strategic projects. We also record the sessions so people can listen at their convenience.
  • Client Spotlights: During our quarterly All Hands Meetings we invite 2-3 project teams to present a Client Spotlight. These spotlights are opportunities for our teams to share lessons learned and celebrate their accomplishments with the broader team. It's also an opportunity for our team to connect better to the work we're doing outside of their current project.
  • Fall Festival: Each Fall we host a family friendly event for all our awesome employees and their families. The festival includes food, drink, crafts, face painting, moon bouncing, hayrides and balloon art. We turn our parking lot into a fall-themed festival of fun which has been a huge hit with our employees and their families!

How to Get Hired

We asked SingleStone for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

We hire for attitude, aptitude and skills, in that order. We look for candidates who are motivated by solving problems, learning new things, and are passionate about serving others. When we’re interviewing, passion is one of the first things that stands out. If a candidate is passionate about what they do, it shows and they want to talk about it. It's also clear that work isn’t just a “job” – it’s something much more meaningful and fulfilling. We also look for people who are naturally collaborative and service-oriented. Serving others is one of our core values and central to our purpose. Lastly, we need our team to be flexible and adaptable. We aren’t a overly structured on purpose - we value agility and innovation and believe in learning "along the way."

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

A unique resume that shows character and individuality always stands out in a crowd, however there are a few other things candidates can do to grab our attention.Take some time when completing the job application. The more information we have, the better prepared we are to find them the right role. Not to mention, it shows us that they're really vested in our process. We even have a few questions that allow candidates to showcase their personality. We want them to be thoughtful and creative with their answers and get to know a bit about them beyond their resume. Send an email or a LinkedIn request and reiterate interest in our firm. We always love talking with potential hires! 

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

We're always in the market for talented people to join our growing team, however the market for technology talent is becoming increasingly more competitive. We're actively recruiting for AWS Engineers, Cloud Architects, Program Managers, Full-Stack Software Developers and Account Managers. 

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

Interested candidates should visit our website to learn more about our values, our team, our clients, and the type of work we do. Reviewing case studies might be a useful way to find out more about how we approach our work and the types of problems we solve.
