"I have worked with Cobham Gaisler since 2018, as part of the Hardware team. We develop products for space, the work environment here is very comfortable. Colleagues are happy to share knowledge, welcoming and fun as well. Here I could get a chance to do design activities. I was doing functional validation of designs and was searching opportunities to do more digital design. I am able to learn new things every day and add value to myself as an engineer. We have regular discussions with team members and I would say that it is an efficient way to work and move things forward.

The company has employees from many countries, so the work environment is pretty international in that sense. Employees here are dedicated and passionate about what they do and proud of what we are as a company. The leadership team is very much approachable and supportive. 

I have worked with GR740 Next Generation Microprocessor Flight Models development project, validating the functionality and performance of the processor."
