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.
