Mike StittLead Engineer at SpinDance
Mike designs systems and leads teams of embedded software engineers at SpinDance. He is innately curious, a life-long learner, and has been building products and teams for over 25 years. His curiosity, and love of building and learning, has allowed his career to wander from embedded software, to custom micro-coded communication engines, to custom chip design, to circuit board design, to system engineering of aircraft power generation and cooling systems, to mobile application development, to engineering business development, to building great engineering teams, to defining the technical strategy and partnership approach for a big-data, wide-area, gigapixel imaging startup, and more. He has benefited from excellent mentors and coaches and enjoys helping his team members succeed. Mike has a Bachelor of Science in Engineering, specializing in Computer Engineering, from the University of Michigan.
When he is not designing or building, Mike might be playing board games, boating, kayaking, backpacking, coaching soccer, or walking his golden retriever, Scooter; but it is more likely that Mike and his wife are watching their two children play soccer, rugby, or volleyball.
