U-blox: ‘We’re looking for design engineers at all levels’

15 Mar 2016

Ask anyone in the industry what the most exciting development area in tech is and most of them will say the same thing: it’s the internet of things (IoT). That places U-blox in an enviable position.

IoT is, without a doubt, an area of immense growth. As such, more and more companies are needed to support the IoT industry.

That’s where companies like U-blox come in. The Swiss-headquartered U-blox designs and develops embedded systems for positioning and wireless products, enabling connectivity of IoT devices.

U-blox, too, is going through a period of expansion, moving to a larger facility in Cork and looking to grow its staff.

According to Jim Connelly, design centre manager at U-blox in Cork, the company is seeking “bright, friendly, outgoing people, who work well in teams and want to work at the cutting edge of technology”.

These candidates – who, ideally, would have a minimum of two to three years’ post-graduate experience – would be joining a team with diverse backgrounds, working on cellular and Wi-Fi transceiver design.

There are perks to working at U-blox, from a flexible working style to a family-friendly ethos, which offers paid paternal leave, and healthcare for employees and their families.

The company would be an ideal fit for someone looking for an exciting experience with a start-up vibe, says Connelly.
