Name: John Dickinson
Position: Software Engineer
Joined Philips: February 2012 

I am a software engineer working with the Lumify mobile application team; I’ve been with the company for over five years, and I still find it amazing that the team I work with develops code to run an application meaning medical professionals can see inside people with nothing more than a smartphone.

One of the first things that attracted me to Philips, and to this role in particular, was the opportunity to design, develop and build revolutionary technology that can improve and save lives. When I think about it in those terms, it’s difficult not to feel pride at the work we are doing.

I find the entire coding process fascinating. I’m always looking for innovative methods that will enhance the usability and overall quality of the product, and Philips is very supportive of our team’s efforts.

Working at Philips has been an eye-opening experience for me. Before joining I knew relatively little about ultrasound and I wasn’t entirely aware of the scale of the operation I would be working on. I’m learning and growing professionally every day, and on top of that I get to work with a great team that not only appreciates collaborative effort, but makes me look forward to getting out of bed in the morning.
