Development engineer

What does a typical working day look like?
As one of the first people in the office, I start by raising the blinds on the windows and switching on the lights. I then check my emails and see what tasks I have to do that day. I take part in meetings as and when I am required, work on programming or carry out measurements and tests on our devices. During the breaks, I enjoy chatting with my colleagues or having lunch together.

If you had to express yourself in an emoji, which one would you choose for your current job?

What advice would you give to a younger colleague who is just starting out in the industry?
It’s best to complete one task at a time.

What’s the most exciting part of your job?
I find the variety of tasks in my job particularly exciting.
