I’m doing what I love doing, and it’s mostly play, not work, for me because I enjoy doing it.
The projects are exciting, challenging, and very fulfilling. I am doing what I have always wanted to do, in an industry I have always wanted to work in, with people I enjoy working with.
Multidisciplinary Systems Engineer
The work I do is varied and interesting, and our culture is very open and collaborative. We work on challenging and exciting programs with a unique sense of community and teamwork.
