I worked at Openwave Mobility full-time (More than 3 years)
Many former employees Openwave have gone on to create or be part of successful companies, such as Waze, Admob, Zimbra, Google, Android, and so on. The experience of working at Openwave provides a lot of knowledge about the pluses and minuses of the mobile world across the full stack, and especially how hard it is to work with mobile operators.
In the later years post 2008, the company was too sales driven, lost the best technical talent, and lost the ability to innovate and create value that isn't quickly commoditized by the desire of mobile operators for all suppliers to comply with open standards.
Advice to Management
The company many times spoke of the benefit of "incumbency"--being installed in many dozens of the largest mobile operators, but has not taken advantage of that to create new product businesses with long term high profit growth. Perhaps it can still do that.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Openwave Mobility (Redwood City, CA) in June 2015.
Applied online(linkedin) and was contacted by HR after a couple of weeks for initial phone screen. First round was technical phone screen (45 minutes) with two people from the team (one of them was the hiring manager). Second round was take home test (2 days to solve, linked list problem). Third round was skype interview (1:1) with a another team member (mainly about c++ ). Never heard back from them after the third round.
