So you could get to know the people you’ll be speaking with should you ever need help with your Sensi™ Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat. You’ve met some people on the creative marketing team, the visionaries behind the messaging, imagery, colors, and personality that help to define the Sensi thermostat brand. And we’ve profiled several members of our development and engineering team, a large and crucial component in ensuring that you have the ultimate home comfort experience. They are the folks behind the scenes tweaking the technology, coding feature upgrades like Keypad Lockout, and working on Sensi thermostat integration into home automation devices, like Wink Smart Home Platform and Amazon Alexa.

Omer was born and raised in Turkey but has been living and working in the U.S. for eight years. He got into development work in high school and once in college, pursued studies in mobile development, specializing in Android. He came with some impressive credentials after cutting his teeth at a famous fruit company. You might know which one.

Omer is skilled in martial arts, including Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu. This avid gamer also loves to cook and enjoys working on some of his numerous inventive side projects. While Omer is one of our resident Android mobile development experts, he’s not content to rest on his laurels.

“I do eventually want to get cross-trained on iOS and I’m currently working on this.”

Describe a typical day at work.

“A typical day at work includes our daily stand up meeting. This is where everyone talks about their accomplishments and the progress we made the previous day. Then we make plans on what to do next, split into pairs and finish up all of the assigned tasks.”

What is your favorite thing about working on the Sensi Team?

“I really appreciate the flexible work environment and all of my fellow team members. I feel like the climate Emerson has cultivated encourages more creative thinking.”

What is your favorite feature on the Sensi thermostat?

“I love them all but I’m really excited about the features we are currently working on. We can’t talk about them just yet, but I can assure you it’s very exciting stuff!”

(We’re not going to press Omer for details about these future developments. Remember those martial artist skills?)
