The Viewpoint community buzzes with the energy of growth and success. We celebrate individual achievements, encourage collaboration and work toward common goals.

Intertwined with global functional teams, Viewpoint offers a collaborative culture to make a real difference in the marketplace and grow your career. We have ambitious growth plans worldwide and need a growing team with talented employees to achieve this together. We also know how to have fun. 

We are always looking for innovative and awesome people to join our global team. From our product organization to our sales team, we specialize in building powerful teams that put the employees first in order to both achieve our company goals and employee satisfaction.

How We Support You

Health Care

Medical, Dental, Vision, Prescription: Viewpoint offers two great health plans and one dental plan in order to provide our team members with as much flexibility and choice in their healthcare as possible. Both medical plans are bundled with vision and pharmacy coverage.

Flexible Spending Plans for Medical, Dependent Care, and Transportation Expenses: Regardless of which health plan our team members choose, they also have the option to participate in Viewpoint’s Flexible Spending Account (FSA) programs. These programs offer a tax savings by allowing the opportunity to save money pre-tax for qualified expenses!

Paid Time off and Holidays

Paid Time Off (PTO: includes vacation and sick time): Having sufficient time to rest and recharge is key to a happy and productive workplace. To that end, Viewpoint has developed a PTO program that offers our team flexibility and control when making the decision to take time away from the office for vacation, illness, or anything else life might throw at them.

New employees receive 21 days (168 hours) of PTO per year, prorated in their first year based on hire date. After one year of service, employees are granted 1 additional day (8 hours) of PTO per year each January 1, up to a maximum of 31 days.

Holidays: Holidays are a time for friends, family, and fun. We know those special times with our loved ones are important, so we provide all US employees with 9 scheduled holidays and 2 floating holidays each year, for a total of 11 days.

The Perks

Being a Viewpoint team member has its perks, no matter which location our team members call home. Below is just a glimpse of some of the perks we offer in our US headquarters in Portland, Oregon, but as a company with team members across the US and around the world, we are committed to providing a fair and competitive total rewards program at all levels, in all locations.

Contemporary workspaces. Our Portland headquarters is made up of two state of the art LEED-certified buildings located across the street from each other on the banks of the Willamette River. Meanwhile, our two-building Seattle campus is nestled into a wooded neighborhood just north of the iconic Seattle waterfront, and features a creek that runs through the property.

Strong mind. Strong body. Our Portland office is home an onsite fitness center complete with instructor-led yoga classes, and regular massage opportunities.

Pedal power. Biking to work is encouraged, and we have amenities to support the habit! Bike lockers, a bike repair station, and indoor bike storage are all provided for our cycling commuters.

Ride for free. Viewpoint not only provides our team members with great work environment, but also with a way to get there. Our Portland team can ride the bus, streetcar, or light rail anywhere, anytime with a company-paid annual TriMet pass.

Edible energy. We have onsite markets vending healthy food options, plus we have a variety of fresh fruit available at no cost to our team all week long, in all office locations. We even splurge a little with an additional treat on Fridays!

Part of a community. We are a committed, entrepreneurial, resilient group of people, and as much as we are focused on achieving success, we are also enthusiastic about recognizing our victories. At Viewpoint, we believe in celebrating our team’s accomplishments and enjoying time with our colleagues during our annual holiday parties (each location has one), chili cook-off, and a myriad of other social events throughout the year.

Security and Peace of Mind

Life and Accidental Death/Dismemberment Insurance: Viewpoint provides all employees eligible for benefits with a group term life and ADD policy – at no cost!

Voluntary Life Insurance: Our team members also have the chance to purchase additional voluntary life benefits for themselves, their spouses, and their children.

Disability Insurance: If our employees need to be out of the office for an extended period of time due to illness or injury, our disability benefits will help cover a portion of their salary while they are unable to work.

Employee Assistance Program: The EAP is a free, confidential service that can assist our team members and their family members with challenges that could interfere with day-to-day personal or professional life. This service provides telephone consultation and/or in-person sessions to assist in gaining referral to services such as mental health or substance abuse professionals, legal resources, financial services, and adoption support, just to name a few!

Planning for the Future

401(k) Plan: We want to help our team members save for the golden years. That’s why each Viewpoint employee is automatically enrolled in our 401(k) plan, complete with a healthy employer match.

Educational Assistance: Viewpoint encourages its team to continue learning and growing. When they’re ready to take their careers to the next level, Viewpoint has an educational assistance plan to help them reach their goals!

    I have been working at Viewpoint full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Super accommodating, focused on employee health and welfare. Weekly all hands status meetings optional for all to learn what's new and connect with others. Lots of updates, programs and FAQs to help employees get used to long-term work from home situations. Transparent about numbers and employee's can ask questions anonymously.

    Cons

    I miss the office and interaction with colleagues but have faith that the executives have employees' best interests in allowing and encouraging telecommuting for the near future.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the weekly meetings and occasionally changing up the content. The reviews on the product updates are very helpful.

    Business Systems Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Viewpoint (Portland, OR) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Nearly 4 weeks after submitting my application i was contacted by the recruiter to schedule a phone screening. The conversation went very well in which i could tell that the recruiter could see that i was a VERY strong match for the position and seemed very eager to get me to talk with the hiring manager ASAP.

    The next day i received an email from the hiring manager to schedule a 30 minute phone interview. I had a 30 minute phone interview with the Hiring Manager 2 days after my initial phone screening. That interview also went extremely well and it sounded almost as if the manager was ready to give me an offer over the phone.

     A week later i received an email from the recruiter asking me for my availability to come on site and interview with the rest of the team. I immediately provide my schedule for a 4 day period and responded the same day to the recruiter.

    Another week went by before i FINALLY heard back from not the recruiter but the HR Coordinator who gave a a list of days and times that i had to pick to come on site for an interview. Totally ignoring the days and times i was asked to provide and given the amount of time lapse, the schedule i initially provided became obsolete because it took them a week to respond.

    A week later i came on site and interviewed with the team and felt that it went very well.

    2 weeks went by and i still had not been contacted by anyone even just to let me know what the next steps were nor was i given any time frame in which a decision was going to be made.

    I finally emailed the recruiter on Monday and by Thursday i still had not received a response or heard back from anyone. I sent a second email this time to the HR coordinator and CC the recruiter and finally received a reply in which i was told that the position had been filled by an internal candidate and i was thanked for my "patience".

    I have to say that the overall interviewing process was very poorly handled and the company lacks a high degree of professionalism. The lack of communication and follow up was extremely unprofessional and I have never interviewed with an organized where i was considered as a serious candidate and no one communicated with me in regards to the process and next steps.

    I know the organization is going through a growth spurt but it seems to me that they are not capable of effectively managing that growth in an efficient way which should be a concern for any external candidate.

    Even if i had been offered the position, I would have given some serious consideration into not accepting based off the way the organization handles its interview process, lack of communication and the way it treats its external candidates.

    There is no excuse to not communicate with candidates especially ones that have taken time away from their current jobs to interview with the organization only to be treated by your HR reps like you are insignificant.

    Not only was the communication poor but the whole process took 3 months from application to final decision. Seems like a ridiculously long amount of time for a non- management position.
