Our building—built in 1923—has a unique industrial, open feel made comfortable with countless comfy couches and beautiful greenery. When they’re not working, you can find fellow team members playing pool, enjoying the rooftop view, and exploring this historical city.


About the Job:

With the usual greeting from coworkers, the aroma of bagels getting toasted and coffee brewing, you settle in at your desk to begin the day. Checking the latest email threads for important information from the Taiwan team, you finalize your summary of current issues, solutions and progress for the daily sync meeting. During the sync meeting you receive congratulations from the team because you describe the root cause to a critical issue you’ve and the hardware team has found.

Lunch is ready, it’s time for a break! You relax for a bit while enjoying the catered lunch and conversation with great team mates.

After the recharge of lunch and excited about the progress that’s been made, you dig into the schematic review to support a request from the firmware team to debug a circuit on the new PCB we just received.
