ASIC Hardware/Software Engineer Internship (Bristol)

About the Role:

We’re looking for brilliant engineering talent to join our ASIC team that is building next-generation, ultra-low-latency systems to power trading with machine learning and other algorithms on a global scale.

This is an opportunity to work on complex problems around networking, high performance computing, and real-time acceleration where we can't just use off-the-shelf hardware. May also include other duties as assigned or needed.

You’ll work alongside a small team of experienced engineers who came to Jump from leading companies in ASICs, FPGAs, semiconductors, networking cards, and more… as well as PhDs from top hardware research labs around the world.

Our small and talented team is responsible for the entire process from architecture and specification, through to design, test and bringing up of a final product on a board in production. We have achieved excellent results to date by hiring the best and focusing. We have seen proven success in a shorter time scale than is typical at larger tech firms. Enjoy the satisfaction that comes with seeing your work actively trading in one of the most technologically advanced fields anywhere.
