  1. How did you arrive at Spade?

I decided to transition to part time work and searched the internet to see what was available.  I saw Spade’s posting and applied for the position.  I liked the company size because it provides an opportunity to interact with all employees, vendor and clients and to get totally involved with many aspects of the company.  Second to that is the easy commute the location of the company provides.
