I have been working at LoadSpring Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)
Make no mistake; this is a startup. We are an elite team of individuals pulled together to make ourselves, our departments and our company better. As a small but growing team, we have an opportunity to impact the company and its future. This company thrives on making the impossible possible. To do this, we think outside of the box, execute outside the box and build the unbuildable. Each day presents new and exciting challenges that provide opportunities to stretch ones abilities. As an engineer, these challenges provide ample occasions for expanding ones skillset. Overcoming obstacles can provide great satisfaction and garnering greater depth of understanding of untapped potential that lay within. One department’s bottleneck becomes my opportunity to improve the company through an engineered software solution that adds efficiency and productivity.
As an employee of a startup, we at times need to wear multiple hats. This can necessitate the ambition to work outside of the norms of your daily position responsibilities. For some, this can be a huge positive and others a detraction. Those that need clear black and white guides for their role in the company may find this agile and responsive business model a challenge. Each day is new, different and can provide an ever evolving employee experience that is a direct antithesis to a mundane or ordinary work environment.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at LoadSpring Solutions (Wilmington, MA) in July 2015.
Applied online. Received email confirmation, then another email about 2 days later for a phone interview which lasted about 25 minutes. At the end of the phone interview I was informed that I would receive an email for a personality profile (so lame). 2 days after the phone interview, received email stating they wanted to schedule additional face-to-face interviews and asked what days/times work best. Received email with a tentative day/time and asked to confirm. Arrived at the company at the day/time agreed on. Met with the local EVP, then had 4 other interviews through GoToMeeting and Skype. It was draining and the interviewers all asked the same questions. It was also not at all like I expected considering the job title. From what everyone said it was more like a help desk position where you field calls and open cases to various teams.
