Workforce Modernization

Improving and Maintaining the Workforce of Today

As a Veteran Owned Small business with decades of DoD and SOF-specific experience across our Senior Leadership and throughout our company workforce, SPATHE Systems inherently understands the role that identifying, integrating, and retaining talented team members plays in creating and sustaining successful organizations. Through our Workforce Modernization Program, we continually explore every possible avenue to identify talent from the defense, commercial and academic industries to improve and maintain the SOF workforce, now and for the future.

As a part of this effort, we have established partnerships with Academic institutions in order to create pathways for talented young people who are trained on the latest cutting-edge innovative technologies to support the SOF community in ways other than direct military service. Our Workforce Modernization program is tailored to the growing need for a diverse workforce, and we invest our resources into several opportunities that help equip these men and women prior to entering the job market.

Internship Programs

We are fully committed to building a stronger and more modernized workforce and that starts with young professionals like you! Our internship programs provide young academia the opportunity to transfer their learned skills into applicable, hands on work supporting the public and private sectors. As part of our workoforce modernization program, Spathe interns work with industry professionals on real projects that satisfy company goals while also broadening their skillsets.

Tailored to your interests and career goals, Spathe will assist all interns with attaining required certifications, clearances, any other required training needed to advance their careers. Our interns leave well equipped with the latest technology trends and are more eligible for more advanced opportunities within their industries.

Academic Partnerships

To support our Workforce Modernization program, we have established partnerships with multiple universities across the Tampa bay to create a pipeline for both students and veterans to grow their careers with real hands-on work supporting the defense industry.

Florida A&M University

Team Spathe partnered with Florida A&M University (FAMU), a historically black university located in Tallahassee, Florida to provide students with internship opportunities throughout our company. We offer FAMU Students the opportunity to support an effort that matters while also garnering a vast variety of skills.

University of Tampa

Our partnership with the University of Tampa provides a flexible internship opportunity for students to gain working knowledge of the internal structure and processes of a DoD-Focused Small Business and to gain practical work experience based on their individual areas of academic study, existing skills, and personal interests.

University of Florida

This strategic collaboration between USF and SPATHE is set to transform the landscape of career development for veteran students enrolled at USF by offering them the unique opportunity to apply their studies with engaging hands-on projects for Spathe. This not only contributes to the advancement of the defense sector but also facilitates the expansion of USF students' careers in alignment with their academic pursuits.
