Today’s engineers are as likely to work for a startup or small company – whether it’s in the technology industry, medical devices, business services, or other fields – as they are for a major organization. That dynamic is not only changing the nature of the engineer’s career path but the industry as a whole. Now over 30 million business are considered small with less than 500 employees, making up over 99% of all businesses in the US.
The roles of engineers in a startup environment are unlimited but it’s their ability to frame and solve a problem that makes them especially well suited for the industry. Startups afford engineers the opportunity to experience the business-side of an organization while working hands-on with cutting edge technologies in a variety of roles.
