I’ve been working at ASSA ABLOY for almost four years. After years of good opportunity to learn and grow I’ve been given the opportunity to continue to grow within the company. HID Global, a sister company, has offered me the chance to come work with their R&D Engineering team on smart card readers.
For me, this is very exciting work. I’ll get the chance to make use of my existing skill-set to help out the team with implementing a number of tools to assist with testing. The team right now is primarily Electrical Engineers and they are missing the skills for OO programming. That happens to be my expertise right now. But what makes this great is that it puts me in a prime spot to start learning and expanding my skills to work in embedded software. Which is my goal for the not too distant future.
I just don’t really get excited about web development anymore. It’s given me a great chance to learn, but when it comes down to it, how many forms over data can I really build and have it be interesting? That’s not to say there isn’t innovation to be made or that there isn’t some really cool stuff happening on the web. Just that it turns out not to be exciting to me.
I’m grateful for the opportunity and glad to have a change of pace. I’ll be moving to the Denver, Colorado area which is beautiful and, if I have to move from Charlotte, it’s a pretty good option.Tags: change, engineering, HID, job
