LGS CEO Kevin Kelly recently sat down with NPR's Joe Palca to discuss the evolution of communications and how we're helping to make live high-definition video from Mars a reality: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQwaZ
LGS Innovations has been selected to provide NOAA with a Radio Frequency Interference Monitoring System (RFIMS). RFIMS is a five-year contract to develop, produce, install, and maintain a radio frequency interference monitor system to mitigate the risk of potential interference by commercial wireless carriers sharing the spectrum with NOAA satellite operations. “Spectrum is not a renewable resource. With a limited number of radio frequencies allocated for mobile services and a high demand placed on these frequencies, dynamic spectrum co-use is becoming more important,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of LGS Innovations. “LGS is proud to be a part of the RFIMS program, which will provide spectrum monitoring between NOAA satellite operations and commercial wireless carriers, to identify any potential interference between both services.” http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQjQX

Core Values: Taking PRIDE in Our Work
LGS Innovations strives to accomplish our mission through our dedication to the following core values:
I have been working at LGS Innovations full-time (More than a year)
Great culture, friendly people and important, mission based work.
I love working here, best job I've ever had!
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at LGS Innovations (Westminster, CO).
Process was a bit longer than I would have liked, but otherwise very positive. From the recruiter’s first contact to phone interview was 2 weeks, phone interview to on-site interview was 2 weeks, and the offer took about 3 weeks after that. My process was slightly different; my experience didn’t math the position I applied for, so a new position had to be created. For a candidate matching the expected experience, that would cut down on the last step significantly.
The phone interview was casual but intentional. I talked with both an engineer and manager from the department I was interviewing for. The interview questions lasted about 25 minutes, and I️ had time for questions.
The on-site interview was a little more intense, but the interviewers were very friendly. I️ had three 45 minute technical interviews with two engineers each. There were some “solve this problem on the whiteboard” questions, but they didn’t take up the entire time. I️ had plenty of time to ask the engineers questions about the company culture and workplace questions.
