I have been working at Digital Map Products full-time (More than a year)
I have worked for Digital Map Products (DMP) for over two years and recently completed graduate school. The benefits, in terms of medical, dental, and vision, are good and very important to me because of my growing family. The salary is comparable with other technology companies. DMP is on the technological edge of Geographic Information Science in the form of Cloud or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platforms in the form of LandVision and GovClarity. The company has made great strides in the growing field Geospatial and Landscape Analysis by incorporating remote sensing tools, which now allow the observation of land cover change over time. Traditionally, these advances have been done at academic institutions in association with private corporations or government entities. However, this is taking place at DMP on a daily basis - kudos to our engineering. Moreover, DMP has, to an extent, democratized GIS and geography by allowing users with little technical knowhow to use it and apply the tools it offers to solve every day challenges. DMP is medium size, stable and growing. This combination offers many learning opportunities, which has stimulated my professional growth.
Like in other technological companies, certain scalable complex workflows need to be reassessed. Change is often difficult and challenging.
Advice to Management
DMP is full of smart people, allow them to contribute in the form of product innovation. Set your standards to no less than the most demanding of users. Listen to our existing LandVision/Govclarity customers and assure them we are here because of them. Lastly, take the engineering hat off and always practice the “intuitive test” by asking “Is this feature or that tool intuitive and easy to use?”
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Digital Map Products (Irvine, CA) in August 2015.
After emailing my resume and cover letter to the director of talent acquisition, I received a call 2 days later. The phone interview consisted of 1 or 2 technical questions and some questions regarding my familiarity with certain technologies. Then I was sent an email test with 2 questions that I needed to send back in 20 minutes. There was 1 programming question and 1 logic question. Overall, it was a very pleasant phone interview. A few days later I was called and asked to do an onsite interview at their office in Irvine. From what I saw, the office was nice. It seemed like everyone was fairly open with one another and it created a very welcoming atmosphere. I was greeted by the head engineer of one of their software teams and was given an 8 question written test that consisted of various programming problems and technical questions, and I was given 1 hour to complete it. The questions were fairly basic, but not trivial. The coding examples are written in Java, but you can use whatever language you feel comfortable with. He offered more time if it was necessary, which was very nice. After the test we sat down and talked a little more about my background and skills regarding the position. He told me more about the company and what kind of products they actually develop and the technologies used to develop them. He seemed like a great guy and was very easy to talk to, and definitely knew his stuff. Overall, for my first interview experience it was great. Seemed like a great environment with great people over at Digital Map Products.
