Matt Prewitt
Hardware Engineer

Learn from Experience Insiders working in this field.

What have been the most defining moments along your career path?

Working as an intern for a software company. I learned about the opportunites available to someone with a technical interest/background.

How did you get your big breaks?

I sent in a resume and cover letter and got a request to come in for an interview. I interviewed with each one of the engineers here and then I met with the director of engineering.

What was the best advice you received when you were first starting out in your career?

Keep your options open and do your best.

What have you learned from your experience?

Employees may move from sales to engineering or anywhere within the company, there is no typical career path.

What most excites you about your job right now?

Freedom. There is a lot of creative freedom here. I am allowed to do what I like with little repercussion. The flipside is that sometimes our competitors will release a project and we have to pull a dead line in. But everytime I've worked a weekend it has been necessary.
