Immersion Corporation – Why Work For Us?


About Haptic Technology

Touch is at the heart of the most powerful experiences. It informs, it excites, and it humanizes—bringing people and brands closer together.

Our TouchSense® technology enables these connections by extending the power of touch to the digital world. With our haptic technology, we’re able to make the actuator inside consumer devices vibrate in highly precise ways. So that users are able to feel the resistance of buttons on a mobile screen—the G-forces applied to a car around an S curve in a game—or the percussion of an explosion in a movie.

Haptics feel great for business too. Brands all over the world are discovering that touch can be a powerful differentiator in phones, wearables, and even cars, enabling richer user experiences and more intuitive interfaces. It’s also delivering tangible results for content creators. Game designers, advertisers, and video providers are using our haptic technology to create highly immersive experiences that improve both engagement and profitability.

    Pros

    Immersion has been very flexible with work/life balance and my work schedule while I finish my last semester of school. There is so much room for career development and I have no doubt that the leadership team cares about my growth within the company. The people are very intelligent and truly believe in Immersion's mission and vision. The work is challenging yet attainable.

    Cons

    I honestly have no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving to reach our goals!

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Immersion Corporation (San Jose, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I have been interviewed by many companies, big ones or small ones and I have to say this is the worst interview experience I ever had. Arrogant interviewer, incorrect skills test and unorganized interview process etc., all these factors make me feel bad about the company. During the interview, one software manger told me that they want to hire the best people but it is difficult to find one. Now I have a feedback to give them: sometimes it may not be candidate's problem, it may be yours and this may explain why you spent more than four months to fill a position but still failed. After I read the company's reviews by other employees in this website, I know it may be true (and why it may be true) that "not recommended if you have other options.”
