Careers – Electronic design services with Argon Design Ltd.


Challenging opportunities for an exciting and rewarding career in hardware and software engineering.

Argon Design is experiencing rapid growth and we are looking for developers who are passionate about hardware and software design, to join our worldclass team of engineers working at our office in St John's Innovation Centre, Cambridge, UK.

We are a technology and product development company working with a wide range of UK and International clients from start ups and SMEs, to FTSE100 multinational corporations. We specialise in solving challenging problems for our clients, using advanced electronics and software, particularly in the areas of embedded products, multimedia/imaging, multicore processors and networking. Argon Design is independent, self funded and owned by our founders and staff, so that the whole team can share in our success.

Who are we looking for?

At Argon Design we employ only the highest calibre developers who enjoy the challenges of solving complex mathematical problems and developing advanced hardware and software solutions, to create innovative solutions for our clients. We recruit recent graduates, post graduates and experienced design engineers.

Your future career with Argon Design

Everyone in the team at Argon Design is passionate about good design and applying technology to solve real world problems so you will be joining a young and rapidly growing company with a real enthusiasm for engineering excellence. We have experience of embedded product design and problem solving in many different markets and industries, covering the full spectrum of electronics from low level analogue circuits, high speed digital circuits, FPGA and ASIC development, to Multi-core and Many-core processors. Our software skills extend from low level device drivers and operating systems, through network processing and video/image analysis, to end user applications for Android and Apple. This depth of experience means that you will be mentored by some of the very best design engineers in the industry.

Several members of the team also have experience of starting and building successful technology businesses such as Alphamosiac, who created the first multimedia chipset for the mobile phone market - still used in products such as the Raspberry Pi and several Nokia N series mobile phones.

You will get the opportunity to work on a diverse range of projects, each with differing challenges and technologies. So you might work on a new multimedia video conferencing system, then move on to a healthcare product, before working on a 10Gigabit network testing product and then help design the next generation of multimedia chipset for a Fortune 500 client.

We fully support the continued development of all our staff, encouraging then to apply the best design practices and to learn and apply new skills, often outside of their core skillset. We also encourage all of our engineers to be directly involved with our clients; so working at Argon Design will develop your project management, problem solving, client liaison and team playing skills. Our salary package is competitive and includes share options for all employees.

No unsolicited agencies please

Any unsolicited CVs/résumés sent to Argon Design from recruitment agencies will be considered as direct applications and we will not be bound by agency terms and conditions.
