Why did you decide to become an engineer?
As far back as I can remember, I’ve been drawn to building things and taking them apart. The more parts and components, the better! Unless the components don’t work.
How did you originally hear about Getac?
In another world, I was a bartender for one too many years. That can leave a lot of room for thoughtful conversations with customers and the local police department. One of those conversations tipped me off to the wonderful world of rugged.
What do you most enjoy about your role at Getac?
I really like coming up with solutions to issues and improving systems. If our team can make someone’s job easier so they can focus on the hard stuff – it’s a good day.
How do you work with other teams at Getac?
Teams, Teams, Teams. Thankfully, we have some great tech to make reaching out EASY. Teams!
What is something that has surprised you about working at Getac?
I did not expect how GREAT the culture would be here. Top notch, by far.
What advice do you have for others looking to start a career in engineering?
Be OK with failure and things not working. At the same time, don’t settle for it. It’s an amazing career, but you’re going to need patience! And coffee.
