RISC-V chip designer SiFive has opened its new UK Research & Development (R&D) Centre headquartered in Cambridge.
SiFive plans to hire over 100 employees across multiple roles and positions for the centre, taking advantage of the job losses at neighbouring ARM. However it is competing for staff with other RISC-V design companies such as Imagination Technologies and Codasip that have also set up design centres in the city.

“The market demand for SiFive’s leading RISC-V cores is unprecedented, providing an incredible opportunity for both seasoned and up-and-coming talent to join us in delivering innovative solutions to customers who represent an elite list of leading global technology brands,” said Patrick Little, CEO and Chairman of SiFive.
“As part of our global expansion, we’re proud to open our UK R&D Centre in Cambridge to access the considerable local technical talent, especially CPU experts,” he said. “We offer a chance to work alongside true industry pioneers to develop critical technology that is fundamentally changing the way the semi industry does business. With long-term plans to grow talent and teams in Cambridge and across the UK, we are looking for employees who want to make an impact, working on some of SiFive’s highest performance products. It’s a great chance to join us early in our growth in the UK and beyond.”
In March 2022, SiFive announced its $175M Series F funding round and plans to more than double the company’s global staff across its international offices (U.S. headquarters, France, India, UK, and Taiwan) by 2024. Currently, SiFive is seeking candidates in CPU design, architecture, verification, software development, sales, and customer experience (CX) for Cambridge and across the UK.
