Widen Careers

Our passion for quality, innovation, and making our customers happy leads our successful product lines.

Awesome people want to work with other awesome people.

Widen Enterprises is located in Madison, WI. Just as Madison is praised as one of the best places to live in America, Widen Enterprises is voted as one of the best places to work in Madison. Even our employees think so. See our most recent employee survey (2014) where 100% of employees are proud to work at Widen. Employee satisfaction is our key to successful products. We have an amazingly talented team and we are continuing to grow our teams.

We take collaboration and cutting edge technology to the next level and work in an agile and cubicle-free environment which combines sales, marketing, project managers, testers, and software developers into small project teams “pods.” Group discussions and customer feedback is valued over heavy processes. Creativity is fostered through flexibility, hacker days, frequent employee-led lunch and learns, employees’ sense of humor, and a work-life balance.

Widen Enterprises has been in Madison for over 60 years and is known for its friendly, professional atmosphere and its proven ability to stay on the leading edge of technology. An important part of Widens’ culture is our entire staff commitment to building high-quality and easy-to-use software services while providing excellent customer service and building client relationships.
