Quoted US company indie Semiconductor hiring fast in Cambridge
Cambridge is fast becoming the chip capital of the UK technology scene after US company indie Semiconductor hit the ground running by announcing 15 job vacancies locally for its new design centre.
The Nasdaq-quoted autotech solutions innovator is seeking engineers and other significant hires as it scales the Cambridge operation as part of massive global expansion.
Anchored in California, indie now has design or sales facilities in Cambridge UK, Austin, Boston, Detroit, San Francisco and San Jose in the US plus Córdoba (Argentina), Budapest, Dresden, Munich, Edinburgh, Haifa (Israel), Quebec City, Tokyo and several locations throughout China.
The company has been buoyed as it scales by the US Senate’s latest action in progressing legislation designed to incentivise investment in the nation’s semiconductor industry.
The move promises more than $50 billion for semiconductor manufacturing incentives and research investments as well as offering an additional 25 per cent tax credit for facilities that produce semiconductors or related manufacturing equipment.
“The latest progress on the CHIPS Act is encouraging news for companies such as indie that are at the forefront of semiconductor development,” said Donald McClymont, co-founder and CEO.
“Specifically, this Bill repre-sents a significant step forward for innovative US fabless and integrated device manufacturing companies with benefits ranging from R & D subsidies to incentives for expanded fabrication capacity.
“The unprecedented strategic investments contemplated at the federal and state levels would bolster indie’s hiring plans to support strong Autotech customer demand and improve our supply chain flexibility.”
indie is empowering the autotech revolution with nextgen automotive semiconductors and software platforms. It focuses on edge sensors spanning multiple modalities including LiDAR, radar, ultrasound and vision for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, user experience and electrification applications.
