There’s a Big Plus, and It’s People
Tim Shaw graduated from Berkley with a Ph.D in physics and a focus on the effects of magnetization in steel. With such a specific specialty, it's easy to see why Tim was drawn to the modern infrastructure challenges DCI aims to solve - sending the clearest signal possible from below ground to the surface with signal clogging utilities laced in-between. Excited by the work, he jumped into the DCI deep end, starting out as the “Math and Algorithms Guy'' during a time when the “work on this, and work on it hard” mindset was driving the small team. Nine years on, the team has grown, and Tim is now DCI's head scientist. He loves working side by side with his talented engineers and scientists as they investigate the unsolved, open challenges in the HDD market. These two things; the people and the work are what excites Tim about showing up to the lab every day.
Pioneer of a Lasting Career
Over 20 years at DCI + 6 different roles + 2 new degrees + endless opportunities, all add up to the standout career of DCI’s Product Manager, Amanda Hamm. Starting back in 2000, Amanda was in search of a tech career where she could advance her skills, specifically within manufacturing. Her DCI resume showcases a clear trajectory of job titles: Transmitter Assembler, Equipment Repairs, Technical Writer, all the way up to kicking off a new department in Project Management – just to name a few. When asked about how each new opportunity came to light, Amanda gives a nod to the “DCI Synergy” that things open and fall into place at the right time here at DCI. The math is pretty clear, Amanda is one of the many longtime employees who forged a path within the company where she continues to find meaning in her work, the freedom to follow her passion, and the opportunity to pioneer a lasting career in the tech industry.
It's More Than a Cultural Fit, It’s Engineering That Matters
The DCI internship program was one that Daniel Bahr participated in throughout his collegiate career. His first exposure to an engineering position, where he gained practical experience and mentorship from industry experts. The program led to a job offer right out of college and the start of his 6-year career in embedded software engineering. Daniel mentions, being part of a smaller company gives him a wide breadth of knowledge and the chance to wear different hats. Moreover, it’s the opportunity to have a large stake in large projects because the company does all their hardware and software in-house. He adds, DCI offers “freedom for you to be an individual” and your role as an engineer is more than a headcount. For Daniel, it can’t be understated, it’s the people he works with that keeps him here, but it’s more than a cultural fit, it’s sharing the same drive and motivation to solve problems.
