Sondrel launching recruitment drive for engineers

1 min read

Sondrel has announced that it is looking to recruit over 100 engineers for its offices around the world.

“A few years ago, it was becoming increasingly apparent to me that the traditional ways of working with staff commuting every day just to sit in an office or cubicle in front of a computer screen would become redundant,” said Graham Curren, Sondrel’s CEO and Founder.

“Commuting wastes staff’s personal time and creates an unnecessary carbon footprint. So, we put in place secure systems that would enable everyone to work from home for a few days a week should they choose to. This gives positive work/life balance whilst maintain the all-important aspect of working as a team.

“When the COVID lockdowns happened, it tested this to the extreme. Fortunately, lockdowns had no effect on our staff as they were already all set up and used to working from home and team meetings happened over video. As a result, we have been able to complete all projects on schedule and continue to do so.

"We are one of the few ASIC design houses to have consistently delivered throughout the COVID lockdowns and, as a result, new business is coming to us as we have proven our ability to operate effectively and efficiently.”

To meet this surge in business, Sondrel said that it was launching a recruitment drive with the aim of finding over a hundred engineers to join the company including ASIC Architects, Physical Designers, Design for Test Engineers, Functional Safety Engineers, Hardware Designers, Verification Engineers and Project Managers.

Opportunities exist in all of its offices in the UK, China, India, France, Morocco and North America.

Sondrel is one of a few companies that can create large complex digital ASICs with nodes down to 5nm, and as such is seeking engineers who can bring relevant experience and want to learn new skills and disciplines right at the leading edge of innovation.

“The COVID vaccination programmes around the world will hopefully soon start to ease lockdown restrictions but many aspects of life will be different especially how we work,” commented Sondrel’s ops director Hilary Rico

“We are already planning for the post lockdown future with collaborative office environments rather than pure working ones. Also, what our engineers also really like is the variety of different areas that they can work on to learn about and solve new challenges. Sondrel is big enough that there is a huge range of state-of-the-art tools to use and yet small enough that an individual’s ideas are listened to and implemented.”
