What it’s like to work for Spud Software

For those who work in software development, there are many jobs available. However, most know it’s not what you do, it’s where you do it.  

Spud Software in Grand Blanc Township specializes in customizable Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. This software helps a business track anything they need from inventory to task management and Spud is at the frontline of developing this software.  

But the pride in the product isn’t the only thing attracting people to work for and stay at Spud. With flexible schedules, a hybrid work model, and a supportive culture, Spud has a reputation for being a great place to work. Just ask Alex Slaughter, assistant to the owner. 

“It’s different than any place I have worked before,” says Slaughter. “It’s a very fun and lively environment with hard workers and you feed off that energy.” 

Slaughter takes advantage of the company’s true flextime schedule which helps her extend her weekend.  

“Instead of the Monday through Friday schedule, I work Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m-6 p.m.,” says Slaughter. “It makes life easier. You feel like you have a true weekend because you can run your errands on Friday then have two days for fun.” 

Connor Scott, a new employee who has been with the company for just over six weeks, came to Spud right out of college. He has found his first job experience to be rewarding so far.  

“Everything is great, the people are welcoming, and I am already learning a ton,” says Scott. “Our motto is ‘work hard, play hard.’ So, during work hours everyone is focused but we do company events once a month such as bowling to bond outside the office.” 

As a front-end developer, Scott has been able to jump into work after his onboarding process with the support of his team. 

“I have had a few people mentor me from my closeknit group,” says Scott. “But Maxwell (Sommer, vice president of Spud Software,) has been great at walking me through each step of the process.”
