I'm a creative special projects engineer
Seth Wahle , featured in Forbes and BBC for exploiting Android phones using an implanted NFC chip in 2015, has since developed hardware that allows for 4k streaming video, produced a device that detects and eliminates enemy I.E.D.’s, and developed radio communications equipment for the next generation of fighter jets. After recently selling his intellectual property in next-gen I.O.T. based security appliances to McAfee Global Technologies.

Full Time - Radio Frequency Engineer / Special Projects Developer Special Projects Engineer: Develop new products for implementation in military, aerospace, and telecom fields. Design, Manufacture, tune, and test products including robotics, embedded systems, voltage controlled oscillators, synthesizers, and phase locked loops. Coordinate and design auxiliary systems to aid the production of new products. Duties include designing and testing equipment, process engineering, design and implementation of manufacturing automation equipment, PCB development, product stability testing, and the creation of QA standards and policies. Overhauled the production of a new product line, quadrupling unit output within 6 months. This was achieved by engineering a specialized robotic system that removes the requirement for highly skilled personnel in the process of manufacturing the product. Production is expected to increase 24 fold within the next year through the implementation of additional systems. Oakland Park, FL |
