After starting his career at National Instruments supporting, teaching and developing LabVIEW, Robert Mortensen decided he liked using LabVIEW more than making it. So he left NI and worked for integration companies Moore Good Ideas and VPI Engineering while honing his LabVIEW skills and extensive LabVIEW experience and a desire to use his business training, he founded Endigit in 2011. The name Endigit is a compilation of the concepts of engineering and the digital world. It encompasses Robert's vision for a solid company providing quality services and products.

After years of taking second place, Robert is a two time champion (2016 & 2017) in the World's Fastest LabVIEW Programmer challenge held yearly at NIWeek.

Certified Professional Instructor National Instruments

Shawn Walpole started programming with Microsoft Basic on the Apple Macintosh 128k computer in the 1980s and has loved it ever since. He graduated with a Mechanical Engineering BS degree and a Computer Science minor from the University of Utah in 2000. He worked on the LabVIEW R&D team at National Instruments for four years developing LabVIEW before moving to Moore Good Ideas. Shawn was impressed by Endigit's vision and joined the Endigit team in 2014.

Shawn gets job satisfaction out of meeting customer needs. He likes LabVIEW because well-written code is easy to read and because of the power of a development environment that was written for programmers working with real hardware.

Shawn has industry experience programming LabVIEW and C/C++. He has worked with Real Time, FPGA, DAQmx, Motion, TestStand, and Veristand.

Certified LabVIEW Architect National Instruments

Bryan first discovered he was a megageek in a college physics class when he got way too excited about tesla coils (most people figured it out much sooner). Bryan worked as a machinist programming and operating CNC lathes while attending Brigham Young University. He earned a degree in Computer Engineering with a Business Management minor in 2008. After graduation Bryan moved to Austin, Texas to work at National Instruments. He worked as an Applications Engineer in the Engineering Leadership Program for 2 years then spent 1 year in Albuquerque, New Mexico as a Field Sales Engineer. He then moved back home to Utah and worked as District Sales Manager for Natonal Instruments where he managed NI's large accounts in Utah like Hill Air Force Base, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, OrbitalATK and L-3.

At Endigit Bryan is responsible for sales and marketing. As a Certified LabVIEW Architect, he also works as a Systems Engineer doing LabVIEW development.

Bryan enjoys everything about water (boating, swimming, rock skipping, drinking, etc.), riding ATVs, comedy writing, exploring the mountains around his home and dreams of going to space.

Jake has a degree in applied physics from Brigham Young University. During his time at BYU he was involved with computational research that led to the discovery of groundbreaking superalloys and had the opportunity to patent his work. His studies and research focused on scientific computing and materials science. Jake has a diverse background in programming languages including C, C++, Java, Bash, Matlab, Python and is quickly adding LabVIEW to the list.

Jake joined Endigit in the fall of 2017 as our first intern and has since joined us full time as an Associate Systems Engineer.

In his spare time Jake enjoys 3D printing and designing microcontroller based electronics to satisfy his need to tinker and create new things. Jake is an avid table tennis enthusiast.

Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer National Instruments

Blake knew from a young age he wanted to be an engineer. Growing up he was always building something. Taking college physics in high school, he used to come home excited each day and give his mom a physics lesson. Blake graduated from Utah State University with an MS and BS in Mechanical Engineering and an emphasis in Thermal/Fluid Systems. Blake started out working for the US Air Force on process tooling and automated test equipment for aircraft auxiliary power units. On the job he found an interest in electrical systems and started to tinker at home doing small projects.

After being introduced to LabVIEW he found he loved it and was able to secure a job doing fulltime LabVIEW work for the Air Force creating maintenance software to support the A-10 aircraft. Blake joined the Endigit team in 2017 and is excited to have joined such a talented team of people who are all passionate about what they do.

Blake enjoys target shooting, playing guitar, and creating a variety of things.
