Why did you choose to work at Taoglas?
Taoglas is in the top niche of the wireless technology. Although it is an antenna company, the work we develop here impacts so many other aspects of wireless technology. This is why being at Taoglas is always a joy.
My first contact with Taoglas was as a consultant for a customer project being developed. I, on behalf of Taoglas, helped the customer solve their EMC and RSE issues allowing them to pass all certifications. After that, Taoglas offered me a full-time position here in San Diego.
How has Taoglas supported you in your career?
Taoglas has been very supportive of my personal growth and development which allowed me to become a more professional and prepared engineer tackling more complex and challenging projects. Thanks to Taoglas, I have learned vastly more about the wireless technology business. I have had the chance to participate in courses, training sessions, forums, trade shows, and all sorts of other events that are part of this growth.
