Mobile Robots & Wearable Tech

Bailey Steinfadt is a longtime Des Moines-based computer and electrical engineer in the ag industry who recently branched out on her own in consulting and contracting for embedded systems before joining the Dojo Five team.

In addition to embedded firmware, Bailey has worked on everything from iOS apps to PLCs. She has written code for vision systems and image processing, automated greenhouses, programmable safety signage, lab management systems, field (the corn kind) data sensors, and data collection systems. In the firmware world, she has most recently been working on a variety of BLE applications but has also worked on mobile robots, wearable tech for safety applications and for fun, and DMX lighting systems.

Working with such a wide range of applications and teams, Bailey has come to value an environment where lifelong learning, excellent communication, and process improvement are seen as foundational and she’s found Dojo Five to be one of the best places to live those values.

"My biggest hobby is collecting hobbies. I still want to be everything.”

She recently started as Product Manager for EmbedOps to work on ways to share those values to Dojo Five’s customers and the wider firmware community.

Bailey is passionate about the maker scene, serving for nearly a decade as a board member and instructor for the Area515 Maker Space in Des Moines.

In her free time, she’s often found doing DIY renovations, building fun and weird projects (like bacon dispensers), crocheting presents for friends and family, or picking up yet another hobby.
