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
20+ years on at DCI, 6 different roles, and 2 new degrees later, Amanda Hamm is still excited to show up to work. Back in 2000, Amanda was in search of a tech career where she could advance her skills, specifically within manufacturing. She took a job at DCI as a Transmitter Assembler and started making her way all the way into different roles in the company, each more interesting than the last. Her most recent move was becoming the first Project Manager in the company - a role that she performed so well that the company decided to build a whole team to support the scientists and engineers. The math is 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, has the freedom to follow her passion, and the opportunity to continue to build a lasting career in the tech industry.
It's More Than a Cultural Fit, It’s Engineering That Matters
The DCI internship program was Daniel Bahr's first exposure to an engineering position, one where he gained practical experience and mentorship from industry experts. The program led to a job offer and the start of his 6-year career as an embedded software engineer. Daniel enjoys being part of a smaller company because of the wide breadth of knowledge sitting around him and the chance to wear different hats. Moreover, it’s the opportunity to have a large stake in important projects because the company does all its 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.
