David Sam

Mechanical Engineer

David is an engineer who enjoys the variety and speed of work at Whipsaw. He is currently working on many interesting projects such as a retail inventory robot for Bossanova Robotics, which was introduced in 2017 and installed in WalMart. David originally viewed engineering as a discipline of making and implementing, but after being here at Whipsaw he now realizes that good design and engineering are mostly about making a difference in people’s lives.

Prior to joining Whipsaw in 2015, David worked at Orbit Baby/Ergobaby and Hawk Ridge Systems as a Mechanical Engineer. David graduated from San Jose State University with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2009. In his spare time he enjoys travel, cars, hiking, boogy-boarding and break dancing.
