It certainly appears to qualify, but the attorney for the company would be in the best position to relate past experiences with your prospective employer for similar positions.

A big question would also be if it would pass the labor certification. If there were other qualified applicants for the position, they might apply again during the new required posting and PERM could not go forward.

The requirements for H1B hiring are far less restrictive than for GC filing. No one can make any assurances. You just have to take a chance and hope for the best.
