It’s been a while since we’ve updated here, so I’m checking in on behalf of Joe and all of us at Saleae. To start, I should mention that “all of us” more than doubled this summer. After attending career fairs at schools around the Bay Area, we collected hundreds of resumes and interviewed dozens of candidates to join the team. We originally only intended on hiring graduating seniors, but after meeting so many great undergraduate students, we ended up hiring two summer interns as well. They came on in May and hit the ground running on the Logic software. Allen has since left to start again at UC Berkeley and Charles left us on Friday to finish his last semester at UC Davis. He’ll be rejoining the team upon graduation.
This summer has been devoted to product development. Joe and Jonathan continue to focus on hardware development and board layouts. Meanwhile, our software team has tripled. In addition to the summer interns, we’ve brought on two full-time team members. Chris, another UC Davis alumni, has primarily focused on web development. Aparna, who just finished her masters at UT Dallas, has focused on adding features to the Logic software.
We also brought on Spencer, a high-school sophomore who we met at Maker Faire. He’s been working a few days a week on the enclosure for one of our new products. He’s since left to start school.
Jimmy also joined part-time to do assembly. He’s been working away in the back room and is great to have around.
Having a bigger team has definitely impacted the office atmosphere in a positive way. We continue to grow as a team that gets along and works well together. Overall, we couldn’t really ask for more.
