Job Description

About Us

Agile Analog is a Cambridge (UK) based deep tech company that is developing a software platform to revolutionise the way analog electronic circuits are designed in microchips. We are growing quickly to become one of the world’s leading companies in our sector.

Within Agile Analog you will be exposed to the latest electronics technologies and will have a unique opportunity to shape the direction of our products and of an industry that is the driving force behind our modern lives.
