Description

Welcome to 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.

About our UK Design Centres

Our UK design centres in Cambridge in Bristol were set up in early 2022 to develop high performance, low power embedded and application CPU cores from scratch. We are embarking on clean-sheet designs, and need people who can establish high quality working practices as they explore new ground under the guidance of Kalvin Williams, the Senior CPU Design Manager. These projects are highly complex, with usually one person being responsible for owning a portion of the design.

YOUR ROLE:

We’re looking for Senior Hardware Engineers to join us either in our Cambridge or Bristol office. You’ll interact and collaborate with other engineers from a range of disciplines across Europe as part of an international team to find solutions. We hire really bright, highly motivated self-starters who enjoy working on something revolutionary in an innovative company.
