Interview with our Firmware & Hardware Engineer Daniel Vea

December 2, 2021

In today’s interview, we meet Daniel Vea, Firmware & Hardware engineer at Kamleon, who talks about his background in firmware & hardware and his role at Kamleon.

1- Can you tell us a little bit about your background in firmware & hardware engineering?

I have been working as a hardware and firmware engineer for more than 7 years while being involved in multiple sectors like consumer products, aerospace, power electronics and even without being directly hardware-related, on high-performance computing.

2- What is your role at Kamleon, and how do you see your role evolving in the future?

I’m the hardware and firmware lead at Kamleon, where I’m helping the team on everything that involves the hardware from installations to design aspects, but I’m mostly focused on improving and developing the hardware and the associated firmware to refine and scale up the current demands. It’s important to prepare our system progressively while piloting to ramp up production by simplifying the system and reducing costs before entering into a mass-scale industrialization. 

3- What is the most challenging aspect of your work?

Working on a disruptive product with huge potential in a very hot industry and within a very talented startup is very exciting. As we have limited resources we need to measure very well all the decisions that are made, the product iterations and how we align them with the company strategy.

4- What is the most rewarding about working at a startup?

The most rewarding thing is to see how the new clients, users and potential customers react when they hear about or use our system for the first time! You can feel is a game-changing product when you see their faces. It is a very transformative project and it makes us very excited to work hard and to keep improving it!
