A lot of variety in tasks and projects keeps things interesting; good balance of practical and theoretical work.
writing unit tests writing assembler code reading up on signal processing algorithms looking at Simulink models and results
Highly varied between days - includes hands on and exploratory work, detailed work, big-picture opportunities, communication-intensive tasks.
It was great being given a leadership position early on. I am leading new product design and integration for some projects.
Process improvement and development (Business and Engineering inclusive)
I get to do a variety of tasks, such as designing and building prototype circuits and circuit boards, performing lab experiments and testing, and architecting integrated circuits and specifying requirements. I really enjoy the diversity, as you are never bored and you're always learning something new or how to do something better.
