I have been working at Data I/O full-time (More than a year)
Get to work the full stack - Product Design, Legacy support, Blend new and legacy products, Manufacturing support, International scope, Customer service all in a day. Great work-life balance. Very Flexible.
Despite exciting work, growth is limited.
Advice to Management
Find a way to make better margin so that better than average salary can be paid.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Data I/O (Redmond, WA) in August 2010.
Applied online. HR rep contacted me via telephone and we set up an interview (phone). We discussed my experience and she told me what the position was in detail. It sounded like it was a great opportunity for someone a few years out of college. A very small shop, but a great opportunity for someone to grow and learn quickly with the company as you would be exposed to many new things (wear several "hats").
Reasons for Declining
They were excited about my experience but we mutually agree that the fit was not right. They were looking for a more junior level person with a lower salary requirement.
