ECD Engineering Team Expands with Addition of Software Development EngineerSeptember 18, 2023 | ECD
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
ECD announced that Seydina Diop has joined the company’s growing engineering team as a Software Engineer II. This is the second ECD engineering hire in less than a year, as the company has committed to—and is achieving—an accelerated product development roadmap.
Diop, an experienced full-stack software developer who has been writing code since childhood, brings over ten years of experience to the ECD team. He previously worked for an online design goods marketplace where he managed the company’s social media presence and provided technical support, metrics analysis, and troubleshooting to improve the user experience. His unique skill set unites back-end and front-end technical knowledge with artistic presentation, bringing operational robustness and user perspective to his craft.
“I describe myself as having an engineer’s brain with an artist’s eye,” comments Diop. “It’s one thing to understand and be able to develop technically sound code. It’s quite another to marry that skill with artistic conceptualization to ensure the user experience is visually rich, intuitive, and consistent across multiple platforms. That’s what I intend to help deliver for ECD users.”
Initially focused on enhancements to the company’s popular OvenSENTINEL™ continuous reflow soldering monitoring technology, Diop’s future assignments include the development of baking-centric profiling software, portfolio-wide MAP profiling software upgrades, and adding customer-requested features to several popular ECD products.
Micheal Pliska, ECD Director of Engineering, says, “Seydina is a great addition to our team, allowing us to bring key software responsibilities in-house which has tightened the feedback loop and enabled fast implementation. He’s already been instrumental in adding OvenSENTINEL product support for global regions and has begun working on major upgrades to other ECD product lines.”
ECD announced that it has hired Michael Pliska as its new Director of Engineering, supporting all product lines and market sectors.
