    My First Year as an Application Engineer at RTI

    Now and then I get asked, "What do you do for a living?" to which I reply, "I'm an Application Engineer." Like clockwork I get the standard response, "Ahem...(5-second pause) and what exactly is that? Do you build mobile apps?" Having Application Engineer as a job title might not sound like the easiest job to describe, and it's definitely not.

Real-Time Innovations – Why Work For Us?

The digital world is expanding constantly and increasing in complexity. The usual advancements in processing speed, memory capacity, and industrial design are common in now-essential items such as smartphones and laptops. The next area ready for innovation is in connectivity and how to handle the enormous amounts the data that devices and systems collect and process.
Consumers are more aware of connectivity applications through “Internet of Things” (IoT) devices such as smart thermostats, phone-controlled drones, and digital assistants. In addition, the IoT has an industrial side (IIoT) where complicated systems need to be reliable and robust for hospital patients, autonomous cars, and vast electrical grids. IIoT is also making waves in industries such as defense, artificial intelligence, and robotics...and those are just the tip of the iceberg.

That’s why we need you.
RTI is growing to push the boundaries of the IIoT. We are a smart, passionate community where your accomplishments are recognized by colleagues and appreciated by our customers. Individually, we are an eclectic mix of cultures, backgrounds, experience, interests, and hobbies. Together, we work to solve problems that affect millions of lives.
If making the world a better place is a goal for you and not just a cliché, RTI is the place to be.

RTI solved customer problems in the following areas:

One of the best examples of our company culture is a week (company-wide) kickoff called CKO. RTI hosts a beginning-of-year combination vision/party/kickoff event with the entire staff. RTI is a unique team and a unique culture. Our "all hands" CKO is a big part of that culture. It helps us employees bond, focus, learn, and celebrate.

What do we do at CKO? Well, first, we'll clarify our vision and execution plans for the upcoming year. RTI has an insanely great opportunity! Realizing our potential takes everyone. We are big enough now to have a significant impact on the world. But we are far too small to go off in different directions. We have guest speakers along with an agenda filled with fun events (ranging from karaoke nights, team bonding events and yacht cruises) for everyone in the company to get to know each other!

All our employees are invited and everyone is critical to our success. We really are, as the saying goes, Working as One.

To learn more about our core values, check it out here: Core Values

A healthy employee makes for a good employee. That’s why medical, dental, vision, life and disability coverage is provided. In addition, we offer an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) – free, confidential counseling to help with personal, family, financial, health or work-related problems. We also have an onsite fitness room open 24/7 so you can work out on your schedule.

We hire stars and reward their efforts by offering competitive salaries and a variety of tools to help ensure a secure financial future. Benefits include 401(k) matching contribution, 401(k) and Roth post-tax options, pre-tax flexible Health and Dependent Care Spending Accounts, profit sharing, merit bonuses and equity participation.

Enjoy your time away from RTI. We offer unlimited paid time off which not only allows employees to take reasonable vacations based on their personal plans each year but also potentially pays you bonuses to use vacation benefit while you are at RTI. Our goal is to support, with both words and money, a trusting culture of results-based performance.

We really love our culture – casual yet professional, an interesting mix of personalities, experience, and interests. We find that a range of employee perks such as well-stocked kitchens, Lunch and Learn trainings, ping pong tournaments, off-site events and holiday celebrations allow us to enjoy time together away from work. One of our most unique attributions is our employee–to–employee rewards program. Employees can give out a voucher worth a certain amount of money which the recipient can redeem for any gift card of their choice! This program encourages us to appreciate, recognize, and reward our co-workers efforts no matter how big or small the task was.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Real-Time Innovations (San Jose, CA) in October 2016.


    The hiring and interview process was very thorough and done very well. I spoke with every one at each level from the accountants (who I'd be working with) to the VP of Operations. All the interviewers were super friendly and I could feel that they really stress the importance of keeping a solid company culture. Each separate interview was about 45 minutes and the whole process took about a normal work day. I remember leaving the interview hoping I would get a call back for a job offer because I loved everything about what RTI was doing.
