To find a long-term Software Engineer (Developer), Test Engineer, Programmer, Analyst, Automation or Controls Engineer position in Greater Seattle Area.


Main Area of Expertise: Using National Instruments LabVIEW for Implementing PC-based systems for Manufacturing, Factory Automation, Motion Control, Human Machine Interfaces, Automated Test & Measurement Equipment / Systems (ATE), Data Acquisition (DAQ), Storing in Database and Reporting (Microsoft SQL Server), communicating with PLCs and Industrial Networking;


Senior Staff Engineer, 2008 – Present

Microvision, Inc., Redmond, WA (

Selected hardware and developed software (in LabVIEW) for various engineering and production test stations for microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and devices based on them: barcode scanners and miniature (a.k.a. “pico”) video projectors, communicating with different off-the-shelf and custom data acquisition and control electronics and instruments, cameras and motion controllers, environmental chambers, etc. via GPIB, serial, PCI, PXI, USB. The test stations deployed to the production lines have been critical to significant volume gains with higher yield, which had a positive impact on top line revenue and gross margin.

Set up and managed a production test Microsoft SQL Server database and designed web-based database reports using SQL Server Reporting Services supporting the company’s ability to make well informed decisions on improving quality and yield.

Controls Engineer, 2000 – 2003

DMC, Inc., Chicago, IL (,

National Instruments Alliance Member, Microsoft Certified Partner

Designed project specifications and developed automated industrial systems using various motion control and data acquisition hardware and software for a diverse clientele including Underwriters Laboratories, Caterpillar, Steris Corp., and others. Project descriptions are available upon request;

Trained new employees.

Teaching/Research Assistant, 1997 - 2000

Department of Physics, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI (

Taught undergraduate physics labs;

Graded student papers;


Developed a control and data acquisition program in LabVIEW for an electron spectrometer system in the WMU Accelerator Laboratory. The project involved controlling and retrieving data from devices on a CAMAC crate as well as GPIB (IEEE-488) instruments connected to the system via a GPIB to CAMAC interface. A computer communicated with the system via a serial (RS-232) port on the crate controller.
