Why did you choose to work at Teradyne?

Because of the people and the culture.

What is most challenging about your job?
Time to market is one of the most crucial factors of success in our business. Meeting incredibly tight deadlines and fast paced new product introductions is the most challenging and the most exciting part of my job.

What do you find most rewarding about your job?
Nothing in my job is more exciting than seeing a new product being loaded into a truck and leaving the factory for the first time.           

How do you think the people at Teradyne differ from those you might find in other companies?
Teradyners are very loyal people and they are respectful of one another.

How you view the corporate culture?
It is a relatively flat organization and everyone's opinion matters. I like the fact that discussions and thoughts from everyone and anyone are respected and valued.
