Rogind Electronic Services (RES) is a software and systems engineering company based in Silicon Valley.
RES was founded by myself, Erik Rogind, to provide consulting, custom solutions and product development services both locally and beyond. In many ways the RES history and story is as colorful as that of Silicon Valley. An inspection of the RES client list and solutions hints at this color.
My work with diverse products and industries has a unifying theme of incorporating accessible state of the art technologies and methodologies into innovative products that ship on time.
Specialties include Defense Electronics, Communication Middleware / Stacks / Protocols, Real Time Control and Embedded Systems, Multi-tier systems, and database driven applictions.
I am able to work with your organization - on site or off site - as a project architect, project leader, member of an engineering team or as creator of an independent team scaled to the scope of the product design task.
I will bring full Software Development Life Cycle practices to your project.
Prior to starting RES, Erik worked for Watkins Johnson in Palo Alto, CA
Education: B.S. Computer Engineering, University of Michigan
Security Clearance: recently lapsed US DOD Secret
