Robin Meekes

HVAC Software Engineer

About Me

I'm a former military service member turned HVAC software engineer. After serving in the military for nine years, I decided to pursue a bachelor's degree in electrical and electronics engineering with a focus on embedded systems engineering. Since then, I've worked as an embedded software engineer at BDR Thermea and Remeha, where I've developed my skills in controls engineering, low-level software development, and hardware abstraction layers. I'm self-confident, creative in finding solutions, and able to work purposefully within a group. In my free time, I enjoy working on private software projects and testing the limits of AI systems.
