Pros

Despite being quite a sizable company now, Location Labs has not lost sight of its startup roots - working hard always seems to pay off in troves.

I face complex problems every day, and my project list never seems to get shorter, but I constantly feel encouraged to attempt to achieve the impossible by embracing the challenges. I have never before felt so simultaneously trusted, empowered, and challenged by a job.

Along that thread, I'm impressed at how incredibly supportive the company is of projects and initiatives. Management is happy to lend its support and resources. I have never been told "no" to a good idea - but am almost always asked "But how can we do that better or more efficiently?"

Lastly, my immediate team in particular, but the Location Labs team in general, is filled with talent and character. I have never been surrounded by more capable and dedicated people in my life. We're a winning team and it shows.

Cons

We sometimes still communicate as if only 20 people work here. It's usually not an issue, but on bigger projects, a little more formalized processes would speed things along.

Advice to Management

Keep guiding us through the transition to becoming a larger and larger company. I'm excited to see how Location Labs handles our continued growth.

    Should focus more on formalizing the process.
    Should focus on other product/project also to diversify the company protfolio .

  2. Great people to work with, especially US engineers. Start up environment with good code quality focus.
