Good small company with good technology and good people
Engineer (Current Employee) – Greenbelt, MD – December 15, 2015
The thing I enjoy most about Orbit Logic is that truly challenging work that everyone always seeks in an environment with just the right amount of process (not too much or too little). Web, mobile, onboard spacecraft apps for all the latest space stuff.
The management is very technical and keeps hands on as needed, but not too much in the way. Approachable and knowledgeable enough to help with any problem and understanding of the challenges of software development.
Work hours are pretty flexible. Some people work early or late to avoid traffic or handle family schedules. People can work from home as needed, but generally it feels like everyone is in the office, which makes for a good level of buzz.
Each team/project has a weekly internal and customer facing meeting. That's just enough to feel involved, but not overburdened with meetings.
There is definitely a strong feeling that every person's contribution matters. With that, there can be pressure to continuously perform super well, but with the caliber of employees at Orbit Logic this is usually not a problem. It also means that there is little "management" needed - definitely not the right company for someone whose goal is to grow through ranks of management structure. The subject matter has a lot of intricate physical and computational algorithms, so everyone is really smart.
