My naive set up.. 
Adding 
os.environ['SPARK_HOME'] = "/path/to/spark"
sys.path.append("/path/to/spark/python")
on top of my script.
from pyspark import SparkContext
from pyspark import SparkConf
Execution works from within pycharm...

Though my next step is to figure out autocompletion and I bet there are better ways to develop apps for spark..
