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. Our first beneficiary was Greater Richmond SCAN - a non-profit that raises awareness and funds to prevent child abuse and neglect in our area. We donated $6000 in our first year and plan to make this an annual event!
  • Team Appreciation Days: Team and Account Leaders are encouraged to host social and team building events throughout the year. We've had teams participate in a "learning retreat" at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, rent a pontoon boat for the afternoon, and receive Amazon Echo's at their end of year team celebration. All of these examples showcase our desire to acknowledge, reward and recognize the hard work and dedication of our team.
  • The Rolling Stone: The Rolling Stone is SingleStone’s internal newsletter and sister publication to our internal blog, Simply Put. Our newsletter is published monthly and includes a high-level financial update in addition to other useful and celebratory information related to our firm, our teams and our employees. 
  • 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.
  • Financial Wellness Lunch & Learns: In partnership with a Certified Financial Planner (CFP), we hosted a series of "lunch & learns" to provide our team with access to helpful information on a variety of financial topics. Topics vary each quarter and include workshops on - “Saving for College”, “Life Planning,” “Funding your Retirement” and “Cash Flow Management.” Employees are also able to ask questions and get personal advice after each session. 
  • The Sales Gong: When we close a deal or win a new piece of work, we sound the gong. We clap, we cheer and we ask the “ringer” to do a victory lap. We love celebrating the accomplishments of our team!

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, UX Designers, Cloud Architects, Full-Stack Software Developers, Sitecore Developers and Salesforce Developers. 

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.
