    Pros

    If you want to work for a company whose clients love their products, this is the place. I've been at places before where you dread taking phone calls with clients because you get an ear-full from them every time, but here, it's different. Clients are actually willing to speak with you, because they love the product. You can actually look forward to client calls, because you get great feedback, and few complaints. On the engineering and product side, the company is great, as well. There is a competent engineering team that cares about the impact they are making on the product. They estimate well and deliver a quality product. If you're looking for a place where you won't inherit a lot of bugs or technical debt, this is a good place for you. The culture is great - no one is over-worked, and co-workers are typically willing to help each other out.

    Cons

    Depending on your preferences, these things could be pros or cons. It's not a typical start-up environment. Don't expect beer 30, alcohol in the fridge, and the company to blow a bunch of money on employee parties or a boat out on Lake Travis. It's also not a long-established company with money they're willing to blow, so when you travel, don't expect to stay at an upscale hotel and to wine and dine clients without a spend limit. The only true con is that it's still a small enough company that there isn't a lot of upward movement opportunity in some roles, because there isn't yet a need at the company for multiple levels of the same role focused on the same discipline.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at AcademicWorks.

    Interview

    Applied for job through company website. Got a response in less than a half hour. Started off with 10 minute phone interview then the next day was asked for a 1 hour in person interview. I got hired the day after the in person interview. Interview process was smooth and exciting! Everyone was super friendly!
