Jordan Yates

Marketing Engineer & Podcaster

I am currently a Marketing Engineer for Knowles Precision Devices, a specialty ceramic capacitor manufacturer. I studied Mechanical Engineering at Texas Tech University where I graduated from in December of 2020. I have previous experience as a Sales Engineer for an automation and controls distributor/integrator that I worked for in my first year out of college. Before that while in college I did a variety of internships and jobs such as working in the reservoir department at an upstream oil and gas company, the marketing specialist for an oil and gas service company, a service/ engineering intern at a centrifugal water pump manufacturer and even as a teaching assistant for the general electrical engineering course in my college. I have tried out many industries and job roles, all of which brought me to where I am today!
