1) What do you do at Jannatec Technologies?
I am a Product Designer at Jannatec Technologies. I work as part of the R&D team to bring products from concept to reality. My focus is mostly on electronic hardware and embedded software design.
2) What do you find most enjoyable about your job?
I enjoy the creative process that is involved with making something from nothing. Visualizing a new device; how it will look, feel and act, then seeing it come to life is an exhilarating experience.
3) What’s the most important part of your job?
The most important part of my job is to be forward thinking. It is difficult in general to predict the future, but when designing electronics it is crucial. We are all familiar with buying a new electronic device only to have it go obsolete in a week. When our customers buy an electronic device it is an investment in the future. It is a key role of my job to make sure that device will serve the purpose not only for today but also for at least two weeks from now!
4) What’s your workday motto or personal mantra?
My workday motto is ‘focus on the solution, not the problem’. It is important to understand the problem at hand but much more important to solve it.
5) What’s your biggest achievement to date – personal or professional?
Professionally, I would say my biggest achievement is helping to develop our upcoming platform technology. I feel it is something I saw from the ground up and will be making a big impact on the industry.
6) If you could switch jobs with someone else at Jannatec Technologies for a day, who would it be and why?
If I could switch jobs with someone at Jannatec I would like to work in the manufacturing department. I really enjoy doing intricate work and like to work with my hands.
7) What is the one thing you always take to work with you?
An open mind, I think that working in my field requires you to take into account many different ideas and points of view. It is important to treat each one as a potential to grow your knowledge.
