Guard-Ex is developing a state-of-the-art impairment detection device. The engineers here at Guard-Ex will be responsible for the hardware configuration of the device. You will be continuously updating the device by improving the components, layout and design increased efficiency, speed and function. The engineers will be given the resources, advisory support and flexibility to design the most compact and cost-effective model possible. Once the prototypes are solidified, these engineers will spend much of their time studying existing models in order to detect flaws and inconsistencies as well as pinpoint areas of improvement. They use their technical and applied mathematical skills for troubleshooting. Based on their findings, as well as their creative abilities, they will then devise more advanced computing systems.
