Upon graduation, Sperling's former professor, Gregg Araki, asked her to work with him on The Living End. The duo would continue their partnership into Araki's next three movies — Totally Fucked Up, The Doom Generation, and Nowhere — which were collective dubbed the "Teen Apocalypse Trilogy". The trilogy has been characterized as "... teen alienation, hazy sexuality and aggression."

Sperling has been credited with helping to launch the New Queer Cinema movement with her films dating as far back as the 1990s.

In 2014, Sperling branched into television, working on the Golden Globe Award-winning series Transparent. She was elevated to executive producer in 2015.
