This month, we’re highlighting Marius Munder, Senior Staff Applications Engineer. Munder began working at Telegesis in 2002 and officially became a Silicon Labs employee in November 2015 through the Telegesis acquisition. When he is not traveling to the High Wycombe site, he’s based out of his home office near Dortmund, Germany.
Since the acquisition, Munder has enjoyed working with different business units and meeting new people on the Silicon Labs team. Munder says Telegesis’s culture was very similar to Silicon Labs and the main differences were at the project management level “where Telegesis used to have a certain nativity only a startup could afford.” Marius added the acquisition gave him and his coworkers incredible access to new resources in terms of people and information. His favorite thing about working at Silicon Labs is being able to work with a variety of people “allowing [him] to continuously learn and contribute first hand.”
As a member of the Applications Engineering team, Munder interacts with some of Silicon Labs’ largest and most strategic customers. A typical day for Munder involves writing specs, hands on hardware and software work and of course, answering lots of e-mails! Earlier this year, because of his knowledge of the Zigbee stack, Munder was asked to provide customer support during an “extremely pressure packed situation,” said Senior Director of RF Stacks, Bob Power. He added, “Marius brought a tremendous amount of technical expertise, along with a very calm demeanor and provided tremendous value.”
When asked if he could have one wish granted, what would it be and why, Munder said, “1,000 more wishes. No, seriously, I would wish that I didn’t even need that one wish in the first place, because that would mean that everybody on the planet would live in peace and happiness already.”
Marius Munder, we’re proud to recognize you in our June Employee Spotlight. Thank you for everything you do for Silicon Labs!
