“I grew up in the Commodore age, playing many games like the Winter and Summer Games until the joystick stopped working. This was my first encounter with IT at roughly the age of 16.”
After completing his degree in microelectronics at the University of Applied Sciences in Brugg/Windisch, Didi took up a position in a telecoms equipment company where he focused mainly on microelectronics. And he stayed there for 16 years! His career path at the company took him from various positions in R&D, from chip design to embedded software, through to network management. Didi then switched directly to ERNI in 2010.
“At the age of around 40, I realised that I needed to advance my career and wanted to gain a different perspective. I joined the team led by Dani Hartmeier and worked as an embedded software engineer for six years. After a few more fairly short assignments in various roles, I now work as a test engineer in an IoT project in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning technology sector,” says Didi.
“I am very keen to deliver good quality, which is why I like to devote the necessary time to a task, based on the saying ‘Haste makes waste’. This is the approach I adopt not only at work but also in my private life.”
