Tools make the difference.
Back when I started working at Indesign, there was a lot to be excited about: a group of engineers who shared my love for building high tech things with the latest technologies, countless cool project teams to join, and oh, so much to learn. But one thing stood out in a way that surprised me. The firmware engineering supply cabinet.
As a firmware engineer, I work at the intersection of hardware and software, and one of the fundamental tools in a firmware engineer’s toolbox is the development kit or “dev kit.” A circuit board that’s used to demonstrate the capabilities of an integrated circuit or electronic system.
On my first tour, that supply cabinet was like a treasure trove overflowing with my favorite flavor of nerd candy: dev kits, of all kinds, representing countless technological possibilities for all the cool products I would help design. I couldn’t believe it. The feeling of empowerment was almost overwhelming. All that gear to get the job done, at the ready.
At the time you might have found dev kits with a microcontroller or a digital signal processor, maybe sensors, and maybe some kind of wireless connectivity like WiFi, cellular, or Bluetooth. Today you might find an NVIDIA Jetson dev kit packed with 512 NVIDIA CUDA cores and 64 Tensor cores. Talk about candy!
As the tour continued I was stuck on the supply cabinet. The raw excitement gave way to a humbling assurance: at Indesign, I would have what I need. The physical hardware was easy to recognize, but as time went by I found I was rarely wanting for tools of any kind, hardware or software. I had practically all the software tools I would ever need as well. And oh, we don’t have that? You need it? Let’s talk about getting it.
How is this lavish, get-whatever-you-need mode of operation possible? It’s because of the needs of our employees are not their own. They reflect of the needs of our clients, and at Indesign, client satisfaction is our number one priority. It’s the reason for our past success and continued existence. Our primary objective is to give them what they want, and that means our toolbox is constantly stocked with almost anything necessary to make it possible. And you don’t need a sweet tooth to appreciate that.
