Csongor Meszaros joined the Silicon Labs Budapest team in April 2015 as an Applications Engineer and is currently the Applications Engineering Manager of Power over Ethernet (PoE) Products. In his role, he is responsible for new product validations, worldwide customer support, and evaluation board design. His team establishes a link between the integrated circuits (IC) design team, marketing team, and customers to help ensure new products meet customer expectations.
Csongor said he is tasked with solving at least one new customer issue nearly every day. Because a single issue can lead to a chain reaction, he and his team must work quickly to resolve any issues that arise. When Csongor is not problem solving, he works on widening our evaluation board (EVB) portfolio, which he said is “a very interesting and challenging responsibility, as it is always nice to compete with the competition, be creative, and provide high quality customer support.”
Csongor enjoys working in the Budapest office because he is surrounded by smart, kind colleagues. While it can be challenging to work in a different location than the company headquarters, he said, “Ensuring strong and concise communication between all members of the teams is essential in order to stay tuned and work effectively.” His favorite thing about working at Silicon Labs is how we share knowledge within the company. He continued, “No matter what problem I face, I can always find a person who is willing to help. This generates a friendly environment where confidence and know-how can easily be built.”
When Csongor is not working on ICs or EVBs, he plays soccer for a local amateur club. His position is midfielder which he compares to his Silicon Labs role. “[As midfielder,] I am responsible for connecting the team members. In a way, this is very similar to my applications engineering role at Silicon Labs: connecting teams and people to ensure the company’s success.”
We’re glad you’re on our team, Csongor. Keep up the great work!
