Nationality: Indian

Balaji Srinivasan

Education: Bachelors of Engineering in Electronics and Communication

How long have you worked in Nordic? Since July 2011.

What is the best thing about working in Nordic? Good Work-Life balance and highly skilled colleagues.

Why did you choose to start in Nordic? I had always wanted to work on the ‘next big thing’ in wireless networks and closer to hardware. And Nordic is the perfect place for that.

Describe a typical day at Nordic? I arrive just a bit earlier than 9:00 am. I grab my espresso, say hello to my colleagues, and get started with my work. My team’s daily stand-up meeting at 9:30 will help me to stay in sync with the others and stay focused on the sprint. My day’s work would typically involve writing (mostly) C code for development and testing of Nordic Bluetooth Stack, doing code reviews, and participating in design discussions. The half hour lunch session at 11:30 will involve conversations on varied non-work-related topics. That’s also the time when I practice my Norwegian skills. In my spare time, I try to keep myself posted with what’s happening on the Nordic Developer Zone, which is a great way to see how customers are using Nordic products.

Education: M. Sc. in Electronics Engineering from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (2011)

How long have you worked in Nordic? Since June 2011.

What is the best thing about working in Nordic? The colleagues and work environment is great. The company has a flat structure, which means that you really feel your work has an influence. You're very welcome to come up with ideas, and can work with what you find interesting.

Why did you choose to start in Nordic? I've always liked microcontrollers, and having a radio peripheral gives the extra touch! One week after starting my master thesis (which I wrote for Nordic) I was certain that this was the place for me.

Describe a typical day at Nordic? Start with a cup of coffee, look at sprint tasks, start designing, help software guys debug a problem, ask one of the Nordic founders for help with the design task, drink more coffee, find out the software guys' problem was a software problem ( ;-) ), run FPGA synthesis of the latest RTL delivery, continue designing and drink more coffee.
