Free to be: A go-getter

Jacob Schuler, research and development engineer, Anuncia Inc.

I’m Jacob Schuler, research and development engineer. Shortly after graduating from Arizona State University, Anuncia hired me as a full-time engineer.

When I graduated from ASU, I already had several job offers from local companies, but ultimately decided to take a job with Anuncia because of the innovative products and inclusive culture that make it a place I want to be a part of to kickstart my career.

“This really is the ideal situation for me. As a young professional, being centrally located to vibrant nightlife, accessible outdoor amenities and affordable housing was crucial to my decision.”

As a Tempe native, I had a strong desire to stay in the region. I realized I made the right choice to stay in Greater Phoenix because of affordability, culture and opportunity.  

Greater Phoenix is the perfect ecosystem for us to continue to build our company and we look forward to becoming further integrated with the expansive biomedical community here in the region.
