How long have you been working at Ivaldi? How did it all start?
I started working at Ivaldi almost 4 years ago, in March 2017
Before I joined the team I was working as a mechanical designer for a Mexican start-up company developing electrolysis reactors that generated Hydrogen fuel on demand for the automotive industry.
I joined the Ivaldi team as a Mechanical Designer using my CAD skills, and design experience background. I had worked on the Mobile team, operating SingaporeLMC. Some of the activities I was in charge of were maintenance performance, calibration performance, pitching Ivaldi for WSS clients, field testing, , order fulfillment, and finding potential parts for our digital warehouse.
Currently, I’m the Design Process Owner.
