For the past two years, supply chain integrity attacks—unauthorized modifications to software packages — have been on the rise, and they can affect all software users.

Roshni Shah

Meet Roshni Shah, Director of Engineering and Professional Services

1. Can you describe what you do in one sentence?

I manage day to day engineering, and help shape the personality / culture of the company – make the team believe in our customer projects as if they are our own, helping deliver them by taking care of the finest detail and ensuring our customers always come back for more collaboration! 🙂

2. What was your very first job?

Er, walking my dog for a little pocket money. : ) On a more serious note, my first job was bringing up Embedded Linux on Pan/Tilt/Zoom Security Surveillance Cameras (helping the company move the product from DSP processor to an Application processor that had an ARM and DSP Core).

3. What led you to your current role?

The love of working with people and establishing (from ground up) a culture that I believe in.

4. What Timesys project are you most excited about?

On a day-to-day basis, I juggle so many customer projects that it’s hard to pick one! But I am most excited to see Timesys be “known” as a go-to company for Embedded Security and Services.

5. What’s a fun fact about you?

We (hubby and I) have been to 26 of 63 National parks in the US, and nature is our happy place.
