As a Solutions Engineer, I directly interact with OEM and defense customers. This role provides a view into the many markets and applications where our optics are inside. It is exciting to hear from customers on the cutting edge of technology and to be a part of their work. I transitioned to this position from a product support engineer so I could learn more about custom sales and work more closely with our customers. I have learned a great deal about manufacturing during my time at Edmund Optics and I enjoy sharing that insight with customers to improve the manufacturability of their designs.
