People matter

We know that our people are fundamental to making us successful. We hire smart, capable people, invest time in developing them, and give them the trust and freedom to do their job right. We don't micro-manage and we do help you grow in the direction you desire.

From organized company social events to friendly banter around the office, we know that having fun is important to working well together.

Authenticity always

We go out of our way to be honest in the way we do business. Both customers and colleagues trust us to be straight with them and to make our decision-making transparent.

Our goal is to be the best in our field. We take the time to make quality solutions without cutting corners. 

Take ownership

We like people who see something that needs doing, and do it. Each of us takes pride in making our products and our company more successful.

Everyone's suggestions are listened to and many of our best ideas have come from employees. Everyone is allowed to challenge the boss - respectfully, of course.

Get things done

We deploy early and often so that our work provides value to customers as quickly as possible.

We look to the long term and and choose solutions that will give benefit immediately but fit into long-term goals. We know we need process, but we keep it to the bare minimum so it doesn't get in our way.

Teamwork

We keep our teams small and each team chooses how to manage their own time, tasks and technology. We have a bias towards agile and lean principles and pick the approach that suits us best.

We build social links within our teams and company-wide. Colleagues get together regularly to play sports or socialize. Building friendships outside the office makes it easier to collaborate at work.

    I have been working at OpenMarket full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    OpenMarket really values their employees and also their business. I've seen the business evolve quickly into an enterprise B2B model and they've done an amazing job. Profitable and stable but not afraid to change. As for employees, they encourage you to have a life outside of work. Just as one example, company events are always during work hours. Compensation has kept up with market and the work is challenging. I have a lot of autonomy. Smart, fun people to work with.

    Cons

    Not a very deep hierarchy so room for advancement is limited, but they're aware of this and give people new challenges and opportunities when they want them. You can change teams or projects, for instance.

    Senior Program Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at OpenMarket (Seattle, WA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Interview process started with two phone screen interviews, followed by an on-site interview with seven people. Each of these was a 1:1 interview, with the exception of one 2:1 interview. Questions ranged from specific experience for handling emergencies to XML and SQL questions. There was also a lot of emphasis on how one would approach programmatic interface design. The entire on-site interview lasted about five hours and involved everyone from developers to the VP. Everyone was friendly, professional, and genuinely interesting to converse with. I was assigned a recruiter contact throughout the process who was very good at providing updates. While he could not specifically explain why I was not selected from the final three candidates but said that I would be considered for future positions. Over all I very much enjoyed the interview process and would consider a future position with OpenMarket.
