We're excited to announce that Andrew Dai has joined Flair as our new Director of Hardware Engineering! Andrew comes to Flair from Nest Labs and Tesla. On the blog is an interview with Andrew on joining Flair and building great hardware.
Here's a snippet:
I always make sure to check everything twice—or more! You have to make sure every possible situation works perfectly. Testing to just make sure that the bare-bones function works doesn't cut it, especially with consumer products. These are devices that are going into people’s homes. They’re going to be devices that they see every day. You can’t have a product that will flake out on them and leave them cold in the dead of winter. You have to make something that’s beautiful and reliable. There’s really no other option.
Check out the interview on our blog!
