Website Codasip


We believe Codasip is the most innovative processor solutions company. We take pride in designing and developing cutting-edge, high-performance, and energy-efficient CPU cores from scratch, and our own automated proprietary tools to fully customize them. We give our customers a unique competitive advantage by empowering their system-on-chip developers to build the most innovative products.

Our processor cores are based on the RISC-V open architecture. The potential for customizing RISC-V is unlocked with the Codasip Custom Compute approach: our unique architecture description language, CodAL, and the powerful automated processor design tool, Codasip Studio. These are at the heart of our unique and groundbreaking RISC-V processor solutions.

Founded in 2014, we’ve grown into a thriving and talented global community. Our IP engineering teams work from offices spread across Europe, including our first and largest design center in the beautiful city of Brno, Czechia. Across Europe, we already have design teams in Cambridge, Bristol, Munich, Villeneuve-Loubet, Barcelona, Thessaloniki, Heraklion and Athens. The Codasip team is also based close to its customers, which means we have dedicated sales and application engineers in the USA, Japan, Korea, and China.

Codasip is a private company backed by well-funded EU grants. Our products are already making a real impact, with billions of devices already in the market powered by our processor IP and tools.

What you’ll do

We’re looking for an experienced Embedded Software Engineer to join our Embedded Software team and be part of realizing a whole new paradigm in semiconductors and microprocessor design.

The role will be within our Labs organization, where we work on cutting edge technologies and prepare them for rapid commercialization.

The scope of the work is broad, varied, and technically challenging.

  • Develop and customize firmware, OS/RTOS and low-level libraries to support Codasip’s standard and customized embedded CPU cores. As well as supporting our standard RISC-V cores, this work can involve enhancing Linux to work with custom RISC-V extensions, such as our CHERI security technology, or even completely new processor architectures developed using our Studio EDA tool
  • Support the processor design teams with software expertise to guide their microarchitectural design and optimization
  • Explore novel compute architectures and technologies
  • Work with the team to develop our Yocto-based Linux distribution
  • Work with other internal teams to enhance Codasip’s Studio EDA tool and improve software developer support and integration
  • Support silicon bring-up and verification/validation of Codasip IP
  • Test software
  • Write documentation

The role demands flexibility and lateral thinking. You’ll work on both short-term customer-driven projects, as well as longer-term strategic Codasip software products.

As this is a Codasip Labs position, you will also propose ideas for new software technologies and develop these to proof-of-concept and beyond.


What we need:

  • Extensive experience in embedded software development
  • C or C++ programming experience
  • Knowledge of high-level hardware microarchitecture and its effects on software performance
  • A flexible and adaptable attitude to work
  • A desire to learn and also positively influence technical direction
  • The ability to communicate effectively

What we’d love you to have:

  • Experience with RISC-V technologies
  • Experience with writing assembly language
  • Experience with different hardware architectures
  • Knowledge of hardware and software security mechanisms
  • Experience of software innovation
  • Programming experience with Rust


What’s in it for you?

As well as joining a flexible, open and supportive team full of curious, self-motivated and driven engineers who are keen to explore new ways of doing things, you’ll get to work on ultra-modern, cutting edge products and technology. Most of the projects on this team follow the whole development lifecycle, from early prototyping to final production, as well as collaborating with other engineers across the company.
