Principal Engineer
in Goleta, CA

"This was one of my best jobs ever. Working at this University is the best, doing research work? It's for me. I had been told by several management level people in the past I would do very well in a research role, and it was true. I had to multi task and solve complex problems by learning about a system or concept, then applying skills to solving something or integrating with other things, and generate step by step documentation, describe the method of data collection and show the data/results."
