Every project we work on is new, exciting, and presents its own set of challenges – we like that here at DE.

From internship to many years of full-time employment, DE has provided me with a workplace to grow as an engineer, work face-to-face with customers all around the globe, and create technologies used in all aspects of life.

There are two main things I looked for when searching for a job and that was somewhere with a great team, and a place to grow as an engineer. DE is the epitome of that place. As a consulting engineering firm, we work on projects and applications from every different flavor of the embedded world, and it is our ability to adapt to and master new ideas as a collaborative team that makes this company what it is.

If you like to surround yourself with people who care about their work, like to have fun, and will do what it takes to get the job done, then DE is the place for you.
