“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?”

Matt Clarkson, 7 years at Reliable

“I‘ve worked in several other similar companies and Reliable Controls is by far simply the best working experience I have ever had. Technically speaking it‘s a company producing an exciting line of products with a keen focus on environmental sustainability while utilizing cutting edge technology that keeps the organization competitive and the work very interesting and engaging. More importantly though this is a company with the best focus on people I‘ve ever experienced.”

Bryce McCaughey, 1 year at Reliable

“Workplace culture is very important to me. I spend a lot of time at work and I‘d like to think that my co-workers are my friends. 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.”
