SiPearl, the company designing the high-performance, low-power microprocessor for European exascale supercomputers, has opened a design center in Grenoble with the goal of recruiting 50 engineers on site by the end of 2022.
Following Maisons-Laffitte, Duisburg, Barcelona and Sophia Antipolis, SiPearl’s Grenoble site is an important recruitment pool for semiconductor technologies and HPC.
SiPearl, currently recruiting 10 engineers per month, is targeting 1,000 employees in 2025. To attain this goal, the company is creating design centers in semiconductor and HPC skills pools.
“It was obvious that SiPearl should open a center in Grenoble, the heart of European Silicon Valley! It locates us close to several of our partners in the European Processor Initiative consortium and, more importantly, accelerates our recruitment strategy by allowing us to seek out the experts in semiconductor technologies and high-performance computing where they are located. By joining us, they will take on the most exciting challenge in European electronics: designing the microprocessor that will contribute to Europe’s sovereignty and technological independence”, explains Philippe Notton, SiPearl’s CEO and founder.
At the Grenoble site, the company is targeting senior and junior engineering positions in microprocessor design, including engineers for digital design, verification, layout, DFT, process and production.
