"Clearwire was a large, self-sufficient and well-funded lean startup telecom/broadband ISP that offered opportunities among some of the best in the wireless engineering community. Clearwire's work environment itself was located just outside downtown Bellevue, WA and offered the best of convenience and a human-focused setting off the beaten path. The facilities, extreme variety of food options for such a small organization, and casual atmosphere made this one of the absolute best places to work."

The Q.A. personnel were ridiculously critical on us as well."
