What I Do Currently I am serving as the technical lead and embedded software developer for a project. Each day is different. One day I might be working with a contractor to develop requirements. The next day I might be benchmarking code. On another day I will be reading technical specifications to find the right component to work with our system. One of the biggest tasks I do on a daily basis is to recruit information from my team members in order to make the best possible technical decision for the project and the team. This means I need to be able to speak to many different disciplines of engineers and do my own independent research.
