TL;DR 🙂 High-performance CPUs – CodAL – Codasip Studio – RISC-V ISA – European-based company – International teams – Start-up culture

Locations: Cambridge

Department: UK Design Center

Team: CPU Design

Employment Type: Full-Time

Experience: Fresh Graduates

Start Date: Summer/Autumn 2023

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 not just for Senior Hardware Engineers but talented Fresh Graduates to build out our team and help deliver and expand our product roadmap. Moreover, our Senior CPU Design Engineers will perform the role of mentors and support you on every step of your first career steps.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a fast-growing company with a unique position in the industry. If you are proactive, you are not afraid to voice your own opinion, and are looking for a job where you can be creative, we think you will work well with us.
