I worked at WideOrbit full-time (Less than a year)
People: co-workers and customers.
Plenty of room for creative, independent problem solving.
CRM transition was disruptive making work impossible.
Laid off 63 people.
Annual compensation agreements still not ready 2 months into the year.
They'll stick to a 12 month non-compete even if you were laid off after only 3 months.
Advice to Management
Lock me out of the office after the lay off meeting rather than before. ;)

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at WideOrbit (Vancouver, WA) in September 2018.
I was contacted by a recruiter who discussed the position and conducted a technical screening. I was in an area with poor reception which resulted in a couple dropped calls but the recruiter understood and took it in stride.
I then moved on to a video conference, in lieu of an onsite due to travel constraints, with the senior engineer. It was a mix of technical review and a pretty cordial conversation regarding the needs of the team and opportunities for the candidate.
About a day after I received feedback from the recruiter about next steps. Unfortunately I had conducted on-sites with other companies who had already submitted comprehensive offers and had to decline to move forward.
In retrospect, interviewing with WideOrbit was a delight compared to the sometimes tortuous and lengthy processes of other companies. The recruiters were accommodating and genuine. The team and engineers I interviewed with were all down to earth and capable engineers whom I'd welcome the opportunity to work with anyday. The problem domain was interesting and especially compelling given how small and focused the teams were.
