We are no ordinary company and we're seeking extraordinary people. We are looking for talented and enthusiastic self-starters with inquiring minds to support our exciting, cutting edge work in semiconductor IP design. With highly successful teams situated in The Bay Area (USA), Gdansk (Poland), China and 2 offices in Bristol and Plymouth (UK), we're fast becoming an industry employer of choice.
