They will create lasting connections with the core technical team to facilitate solving very complex system level problems.


Strategic Thinking - The Principal Engineer will have the ability to absorb and analyse information effectively to solve the hardest engineering problems. They research effectively to bring solutions and techniques to the table that would not be clear for a more junior engineer.
