We believe

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.


We’re looking for a Hardware Design Engineer to join us to develop RISC-V processors from scratch and follow development CPU:

Prototyping -> Specification -> Implementation -> PPA optimisation

 The job duties consist of but are not limited to:

  • Contribute and responsible for the development of the RISC-V processors and extensions:
    • microarchitecture definition
    • block specification
    • component design
    • design synthesis and analysis of its results
  • Processor development using the proprietary language (CodAL)
  • Ensuring the design meets its PPA targets
  • Working closely with the verification team on verification planning, debugging, and final sign-off
