We are seeking highly motivated and creative graduates to join the Sheffield Design Office to contribute to the delivery of high quality, next generation interconnect products. 

Graduate Engineers immediately start working on real project tasks with help and guidance of experienced engineers. Through teamwork, dedication to personal development and training, our goal is that every graduate engineer quickly learns about different aspects of developing highly-complex system IP, starts contributing to different project tasks and ultimately develops into an expert in the field.

We offer an open and relaxed working environment and believe that collaboration between smart people is central to success.
