I have been working at Green Hills Software full-time (More than 10 years)
Interesting, challenging projects with meaningful real world impact, personal ownership of products with substantial autonomy in how to implement and improve their features. Located in downtown Santa Barbara, which has perfect weather nearly year round and great amenities for a small city.
Expensive real estate. Could use larger engineering staff. Frequent side tasks can be a source of distractions from current project.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. I interviewed at Green Hills Software.
Four steps to the process. (1) Phone interview with hiring manager, (2) homework explaining your understanding of the company, it's mission, products, and competitors, (3) power point presentation (remote), and finally (4) an in person interview in Santa Barbara, CA. I felt that some questions were irrelevant and the interview with the CEO was awkward. They seem to stick to an old sales model and not willing to innovate. However, product seems competitive and highly recommended for big deal/major projects, and the position has high earning potential. Very mature company and perfect for a seasoned veteran.
