Meet Jamie from Software

QUESTION: What is your position at PHYTEC?

Embedded Software Engineer

QUESTION: What made you want to get into your field?

I was part of different robotics clubs in high school and college, including the UW Husky Satellite Lab, where I really liked the combination of technical knowledge and creativity you get to use to solve various problems.

QUESTION: What is your favorite thing about being a woman?

A long life expectancy!

QUESTION: What woman inspires you and why?

Sally Jewell – she also graduated from the UW with an engineering degree, and then became Secretary of the Interior under the Obama Administration for her environmental activism. She was also the CEO of REI, my favorite store!

QUESTION: Are there any assumptions about women that you would like to change and why?

A lot of guys I know assume women are less technologically literate because they’re less likely to play video games and build their own computers at home. Part of the reason why I went into EE was to know more about electronics in general and be even more technologically literate than they are. >:-D

QUESTION: What do you believe will be the biggest challenge for the generation of women behind you?

Probably still achieving gender equality in areas like the Middle East.

QUESTION: What advice would you give a woman who wants to enter the same field as you?

Get into clubs and internships, since that’s where you’ll get the most practical experience.
