Hardware is Hard.
…Finding Niche HW Engineering Experts to Quickly Provide Guidance Shouldn’t Be.
What can save your physical product development team the most time and money often comes down to early, high-level guidance on really specific topics.
That knowledge often isn’t found in a book or online search. It’s in the heads of those who gained practical experience in specific niches of engineering.
These highly-specialized pros can be hard to find or unavailable for full-time employment.
You may even be missing multiple key talents in your hardware development team!
Luckily, we know a bunch of these Odd Engineers.
AND you can quickly obtain easy access to their advice.

Tasked with doing something outside your lane? Need technical insights related to an industry you never worked in before?
Or, are you leading a team that involves an engineering discipline that’s foreign to you?
Don’t fly blind!
Quickly ask one of our experts those questions that might take you countless hours otherwise to research. Get tailored info broken down to your level.
At some point in every engineer’s career, we get asked to do something that’s within our discipline but in a niche we never touched before.
Can you figure it out on your own?
Of course, you can!
But, could talking with someone who’s an expert in that specific thing get you on the right track faster?
Our sources say, “yes”.
Go ahead. Ask us all the things your colleagues think you know already.
Consultations with experts aren’t just for those who are unfamiliar with a niche. They’re great for those who already know “The Thing”!
This is especially true for those of us who are solo freelancers or who work within a larger company where we are the only nerd of our breed.
Need to speak with someone who understands your dialect of nerd? Need to bounce ideas off a like-minded brain? Our engineers are great at helping you brainstorm and think about your puzzles from different angles.
Want to learn from someone doing the thing you want to do one day?
You’re welcome to make an appointment whether you’re a student, an aspiring Odd Engineer, or if you’re thinking about making a leap from one engineering discipline to another.
Depending on the expert you pick you might also be able to learn about entrepreneurship within an industry specialty.
Learn about their regrets and also top tips that can help you on your specific career path.
