Hello, we're Sphera
Sphera is the largest global provider of Integrated Risk Management software and information services with a focus on Environmental Health & Safety (EHS), Operational Risk and Product Stewardship. Our Mission: To create a safer, more sustainable and productive world by advancing operational excellence.
Why Work with Us?
We spun off from a parent company and moved our headquarters to Chicago two years ago so we have the feel of a start-up but stability with 3000+ customers in 70+ countries. Additionally, we are in the process of moving many of our on-premise products to the cloud so engineers looking for the challenges that come along with that will do well here.
An Insider's view of Sphera
What’s the vibe like in the office?
One of my favorite parts of working at Sphera is the relaxed, friendly environment. The people here are just good people. Colleagues, including executives, are friendly and approachable. There’s no drama or cliques and everyone is easy to chit chat with. If you’re a nice person and you like to end everyday knowing you’ve done a good job, you’ll fit
Social Marketing Specialist
What does your typical day look like?
Each day I respond to design questions, consult on small self-contained design tasks with small deliverables, collaborate with other teams to ensure internal UX consistency, and make large strides on the main deliverables that will bring Sphera to the forefront of UX excellence in the EHS sector.
What makes someone successful on your team?
Sphera’s marketing team sets the bar high. There’s so much respect for what each person brings to the team, and we encourage creativity and thought leadership. Through cross-team collaboration, we work to design innovative campaigns and solutions. Our commitment to delivering results and having fun while doing it is what drives our success.

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?
We’re in the early stages of building out new office space in Chicago. Part of our design includes an Innovation Lab. We want to make some of the latest technologies available to our engineers, as well as some dedicated time, so they can develop prototype solutions that enable our clients in ways that no one is thinking of yet.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?
Our Team tries to collaborate by aligning on goals and share with the other dev teams to initiate the support from collaborators. We regularly share the summary of our work to create a place where others can easily find this information.
