“The best thing about working as a developer at Reliable Controls is the opportunity to learn and grow. In the 7+ years I have worked here, I have designed and programmed solutions to problems in a wide range of areas ranging from cryptography and network protocols to memory management algorithms and hardware drivers. The firmware team is very supportive and provides a great opportunity to be creative and learn something new. Plus, who can argue with free coffee and hockey games?”

Reliable Controls is one of the most socially active environments I have experienced, from parties, hikes, and camping trips. My first impression on my first day at work was how happy and content all the employees are; did not notice one grumpy person. That says something.”
