In 1993, The Firm became the first of nine John Grisham novels to be adapted to film. But in an alternate universe, Grisham did not go to law school. Instead, he pursued an engineering degree where he developed a penchant for firmware and power conversion systems. Hence, his bestselling novel, The Firm is titled The Firmware Engineer and follows the story of a C / C++ programming expert from the Mountain West, rather than a whistleblowing Southern attorney. Incredibly, both books have been adapted to the big screen with the ubiquitous Tom Cruise in the starring role… In this universe, we’re seeking multiple Firmware Engineers in Salt Lake City to develop next-level consumer electronics.
