Fun fact: Magnum, P.I. was originally slated to be titled Magnum, C.I. and follow the adventures of a manufacturing manager and his mustache as they 6S slashed their way through LEAN manufacturing methodologies and 80/20 principles, en route to OTIF project completion. His odd couple counterpart, Higgins was to be a Japanese fellow named Gemba Kaizen. Apparently, the concept was too edgy for network suits and they scrapped it for the ol’ ‘sexy Hawaiian private investigator’ trope. Too bad. There is nothing more captivating than top quality manufacturing professionals. We’re hiring several right now.

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.
