Senior Hardware Engineer (Cambridge/remotely from UK)

UK Design Centre · Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
Department UK Design Centre
Employment Type Full-Time

Codasip was founded on a simple belief – that we could bring together the brilliance of microprocessor architects and software engineers and capture it in tools that made design simpler, faster, and less expensive. STUDIO was born in 2014 with the mission of democratizing processor design. We are succeeding. At the same time RISC-V was gaining traction, so it was natural for Codasip to embrace it as an Open Instruction Set Architecture (ISA).


Codasip is expanding in the UK. We are looking for Hardware Engineers at all levels to build out our team and help deliver and expand our product roadmap. The role can be based in either our Bristol or Cambridge offices, or remotely within the United Kingdom.
