John Mole, Senior Hardware Engineer, Systems Integration (Capula)
I joined Capula as a Systems Engineer in March 2008. My previous experience was in electronic circuit board manufacturing and testing. Within a few weeks I was working with a great team commissioning a coal fired power station.
After about 18 months I joined the newly created Central Hardware team as a Hardware Engineer. This involved working on many varied and interesting projects. Then in 2012, I was promoted to the role of Senior Hardware Engineer.
