The Wizards Behind the Ding

Team Spotlight: Engineering

It was all a dream… find a way to dispense a sample without a human needed!  Our Engineering Team brought this dream to life and more!

Our team of Engineers is based in St. Joseph, Michigan, and supports four functional areas: R&D, Service, Testing, and Manufacturing.  Over the last 10+ years, they have designed functional and reliable hardware to ensure samples of all sizes make it to shoppers, provide timely service to kiosks when they need a tune-up, and build new kiosks when our networks grow.  Freeoskers tour the Michigan facility during our onboarding process to learn what makes a Freeosk tick.

We asked Steve Koza, Director of Engineering, to share a team accomplishment, he told us the team is proud of keeping the Sam’s Club network up and healthy for almost 9 years and supporting over 300 million scans at Sam’s Club alone!

It’s not all work in Michigan.  The team saves time for fun, too!  They have cookouts each year to kick off summer hours filled with good food, cornhole, euchre, virtual mini-golf, and prizes.  The Engineering Team is also known to brew beer to share with Freeoskers at our holiday parties.  And the team always finds ways to give back to local charities.

Thank you Engineering Team for all you do!
