    I have been working at Owlet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the mission - building products with cool technology that can help save a life is just awesome. Add in some really dedicated genuine people and you have an unbeatable place to work. They are trying to have both a fast paced high efficiency work place while still being family friendly and flexible.

    Cons

    Like all young companies there are still a few kinks to work out like better processes and rapid decisions being made.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the mission as the main focus and try to take in consideration the suggestions from the employees - there are a lot of smart people working here!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Owlet (Lehi, UT).

    Interview

    I had a 1:1 in-person meeting with first the EVP of Product, then about a week later did a group interview with the product management team I'd be working with, and then a 1:1 interview with the CEO. The CEO meets with every candidate at the last stage of the interview process.
