Website Agile Analog

The primary focus will be developing Data Converters and architectures for both ADCs and DACs, Sigma Delta or Nyquist from Audio to GS/s across multiple technologies.

You will be joining a highly experienced, proficient design team and will need to be a solid team player with a practical understanding of the IC design flow as well as having proven experience of taking designs from concept to mass production. These roles would suit someone who has both a systematic approach to circuit design and an innovative approach to problem solving.

What you will be doing

  • Design, definition and implementation of analog blocks and circuits
  • Taking the Technical lead in Analog Block/Macro development, considering design, customer and business requirements to meet specification
  • Investigation and decisions for architectural needs and options in analog circuits
  • Layout of analog circuits, either through direct activities or support to layout engineers
  • Analog Cell/Macro/System Specification, Design, Layout and Physical Verification
  • Behavioural modelling for circuits and circuit architectures
  • Support silicon validation and debugging
  • Support and practice top-down design planning and implementation


  • A systematic, hands-on approach to circuit design
  • Experience in both defining specifications and designing to specification
  • BS/MSEE in a relevant field or equivalent industry experience
  • Experience in design of Data Converters
    • ADC and/or DAC, for Sigma Delta or Nyquist Rate from Audio to GS/s
  • Experience in one or more of the following areas
    • Clock Generation
      • PLL, VCO, XTAL
      • Clock and Data Recovery Circuits.
  • Power Management
    • LDOs and/or SMPS
  • Analog Sensor Interfaces
    • Instrumentation
    • Low Noise
  • Experience in behavioural circuit modelling
  • Experience in all stages from Circuit and System Specification, into simulation, verification all the way to qualification
  • Good communication skills in English

Even better if you have:

  • Macro-level experience: integration, verification and tape-out
  • Programming experience: Python, linux, verilogA, verilogAMS, system verilog, C Matlab,
  • Team-lead experience
  • Packaging knowledge (CSP, BGA, etc.)
  • CMOS RF circuit design experience
  • CMOS process & design flow (CAD/PDK) knowledge
  • Knowledge of Cadence design tools and environment and also Mentor Calibre verification suite


What we offer in return:

As well as the opportunity to really play a pivotal part in our success, :

  • A friendly, supportive and inclusive working environment
  • Professional development, technical and leadership
  • Flexible work hours to fit around your personal commitment
      • We consider individual requirements to work remotely
      • Home set up assistance provided
  • 25 days annual leave with the option to purchase additional days
  • Company share options
  • Professional society membership
  • Private health insurance (including optical and dental cover)
  • Company pension scheme matching to 8% (with a salary sacrifice option)
  • Life Assurance
  • Employee Assistance Programme – free wellbeing and health services
  • Cycle-to-work scheme

If the above role matches your experience, skills and motivations then we would love to hear from you and we can chat about our exciting plans.
