The Mean Hamster fallout: where did the tech firm’s last workers go to find jobs?

This should be, if all goes well, our final post related to Mean Hamster Software, and its recent demise. We wrote about it three weeks ago, highlighting the issues that forced the tech company's CEO, John Swiderski, to shut it down.

Last week we posted that Swiderski struggled to find a decent-paying tech job in the Spokane area. He ended up taking a job with Seattle-based DoubleDown, a virtual casino company.

We asked Swiderski what happened to the eight workers he had in Deer Park. What happened to them?

The answer: one moved to the Tri-Cities, two moved to Oregon, one moved to California, one moved to Seattle for a job.

"For the other three, I am not sure and am checking," Swiderski wrote by email.
