I also enjoy the challenge of staying on the cutting edge of technology

Ultra Electronics gave me the opportunity to change the path of my career yet still be able to call upon my past years of experiences. It is great to be part of a company that is growing and prospering even while so many other companies are downsizing and failing.

I enjoy working here because of the people and the ability to come together as a team to accomplish our goals. It is an opportunity to give our troops only the best and to help them stay out of harm’s way. I also enjoy the challenge of staying on the cutting edge of technology…
