Mission: Intematix research and development team works to improve not only our phosphors, but their methods of application. In 2011, Intematix introduced ChromaLit remote phosphor leveraging its deep intellectual property in the remote phosphors lighting field. Since then, ChromaLit ...
I worked at Intematix full-time
This is the best place I've worked at so far. I had wonderful coworkers, decent pay, lots of projects to work on, and my boss helped to accommodate family life by allowing a flexible schedule. Not only that, but I had a certain degree of autonomy that I haven't seen allowed to someone at my level in other companies. The company provides a LOT of training opportunities, for which I am forever grateful. QC and Manufacturing teams worked very hard to help the company produce and test material on time for shipments.
Growing pains, just as with most companies. Employee retention was low due to lack of upward mobility.
Advice to Management
Please provide more career growth (upward) mobility to retain trained individuals. By providing responsibility, the necessary authority to do it should follow in time. Focus on intrinsic training & career path planning to reap benefits of improved employee satisfaction and/or retention. Slow down a tiny bit and thoroughly analyze safety, efficiency, yield, etc. and have the processes documented prior to starting a project. Market may be up and down, but organizing things upstream helps immensely to prevent delays that will sway a customer's mind.
I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Intematix (Fremont, CA) in March 2015.
Phone interview followed by a onsite interview. First person had not read my resume at all previous to the interview and read it while we sat in silence for 10 minutes. It was entirely clear that this was a interview for a research role in which you would grind out your day to day existence. They did not want anyone to "spend too much time on failure". They were mainly interested if you had experience in the EXACT down to materials and processing they wanted you to be doing. If you have experience doing the LED phosphors you may be in luck. Also do not be surprised to see random brightly colored powder vials just littering everyone's cubicles and offices. It's very scary from a safety point of view.
