You are not an average Field Services Engineer…satisfied
with the status quo and same weekly staff meetings. You
love to travel and thrive in situations where you are
the key in making complex system deployments successful.
Client interaction is no problem as you have a
communication style that relates well to both commercial
and government clients.
Digital Signal Corporation (DSC) is not your average
“run of the mill” technology company. With the global
landscape constantly evolving, our company stands out as
an innovator in the facial recognition arena. We can do

processing with biometrics. On top of that, our
technology works on the move….uninhibited by minor
obstacles such as aviator shades and baseball caps.
Together, we can invent, design, and supply solutions to
the commercial industry and government. Yes, it can get
chaotic and high pressured at times with competing
priorities; however, the rewards make it all worthwhile!
