I have been working at Onewire full-time (More than 5 years)
OneWire went through its start-up moment of trying to figure out who it wants to be when it grows up - who are our customers, whats the product, how do we price and market it - and what do we want our culture to be. Not that we still don't have tough decisions every day but we are squarely in early company phase. We've got great clients - the top hedge funds, investment banks and private equity firms pay to use our product ; we've got a core group of people who've been together since the beginning and have successfully added new faces to the team; we are a work hard play hard, high energy, results oriented culture. Now we are positioned for that explosive growth moment. We just need more of the right people to join us to execute the plan. And as I'm in sales and have done start up, early stage tech co's before - the comp potential at OneWire is ridiculous. Even with over 100 great clients, management pays 20% uncapped at quota with the opportunity to go to 30% when over. For a sales person, the earning potential is unreal especially at a firm with brand name clients and a product that works!
The team is lean so you may be required to wear many hats. Self-motivation is key as you may not get the oversight and guidance of a larger firm. The long-term success will be determined on the ability to build out sales, marketing and technology to maintain the growth.
Advice to Management
Hire more of the right people - and do so quickly!
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Onewire (New York, NY) in January 2016.
Sent my resume and cover letter, 1 hour phone interview, in office interview with 5 different people. Nothing out of the ordinary, everyone was very nice. I spoke with the hiring manager and head of sales, as well as two current sales employees.
