Helping Enterprises Use Mobile to Transform Their Business
Enterprises choose OpenMarket as their mobile partner for a number of reasons: our domain expertise, service flexibility, demonstrated network performance and reliability, global scale and corporate maturity.
Whether the goal is to optimize communications, improve customer experiences, mobilize operational processes, drive brand awareness or generate new revenue, OpenMarket enables enterprises in any industry to use mobile to directly engage their target audience—and ultimately provide value to their business.
OpenMarket provides a secure and reliable platform with a service commitment to back it up. Our market experience and trusted relationships with mobile operators across the globe enable faster time to market, and ongoing delivery and support for your mobile initiatives.
OpenMarket’s global headquarters are in Seattle, Washington, with regional offices in Detroit, London, Sydney, and Pune (India).
We know that our people are fundamental to making us successful. We hire smart, capable people, invest time in developing them, and give them the trust and freedom to do their job right. We don't micro-manage and we do help you grow in the direction you desire.
From organized company social events to friendly banter around the office, we know that having fun is important to working well together.
We go out of our way to be honest in the way we do business. Both customers and colleagues trust us to be straight with them and to make our decision-making transparent.
Our goal is to be the best in our field. We take the time to make quality solutions without cutting corners.
We like people who see something that needs doing, and do it. Each of us takes pride in making our products and our company more successful.
Everyone's suggestions are listened to and many of our best ideas have come from employees. Everyone is allowed to challenge the boss - respectfully, of course.
We keep our teams small and each team chooses how to manage their own time, tasks and technology. We have a bias towards agile and lean principles and pick the approach that suits us best.
We build social links within our teams and company-wide. Colleagues get together regularly to play sports or socialize. Building friendships outside the office makes it easier to collaborate at work.
I have been working at OpenMarket full-time (More than a year)
Leadership supports the entrepreneurial spirit. Trying and rejiggering isn't frowned upon. As a senior program manager, I have a lot of freedom/independence to enhance my role across teams and have opportunities to reach across teams outside of Engineering and in other locations. As a result, I'm learning a whole lot about our services and technologies.
When I have questions/concerns, regardless of the topic, e.g. security requirements, platform, etc., there is plenty of support from all levels of the organization -- from Product to Engineering to Ops and from devs to PMs to senior directors. Ironically, in a place where folks actually offices with doors, communication happens very fluidly and openly.
The teams and leadership are supportive of work-life balance. There's no clocking in or out, just get your work done and go about living life. (Your pets, kids and/or mental health will appreciate this company.)
Not an ideal work place for someone who needs a lot of specific/explicit directions to get tasks done. Initiative is important for development.
Advice to Management
Maintain transparency and communication channels as the company continues to grow/mature.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at OpenMarket in July 2016.
Overall recruiting and interviewing process was seamless. (Think: Done right!) From the initial contact by the Recruiting Coordinator to the offer, it was exactly a month. Recruiting was communicative and very respectful of my time: follow-ups were done by the dates promised (a rarity), all the interviewers were well briefed and kept on schedule by the Recruiting Coordinator, and the Coordinator was highly responsive to my email questions before AND after the interviews.
When I arrived onsite, I was given information about the company, its benefits and its values. The values emphasized on paper are reinforced by Recruiting and respectfully assessed by the interviewers.
