Innovation Engineer for the CTO office

R&D · *, Bristol, City of
Department R&D
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Experienced

Designing microprocessors is hard, expensive, and takes years.  But does it have to?  No.

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).

We are looking for new members of the CTO office to join our R&D team working on the STUDIO and RISC-V, and be part of realizing a whole new paradigm in semiconductors and microprocessor design.


Role: Innovation Engineer for the CTO office
