I originally applied to NI because of the training and certification they provided. I was able to sit all of the LabVIEW courses and pass the Developer exam before I graduated University.
Initially, in my career, I supported customers through Applications Engineering and taught LabVIEW courses. More recently I consult with customers on how to overcome their engineering challenges and find solutions involving NI hardware and software.
If you are eager to learn, hardworking and like to work with people, there is plenty of career progression at NI. I communicate openly with my manager about where I want to be and the kind of work I want to do, then we make a plan to get there.
The best thing about working for NI for me is the variety of customers and industries we work with. I can be talking to engineers working on testing of RF products in the morning and then researchers looking into machine learning in the afternoon.
If you want to work with customers in a variety of industries and build your technical expertise while building strong customers facing skills and business acumen then NI is a great place to work.
