Cadence announces recruitment drive

Mar 20, 2006

Semiconductor and chip maker Cadence Design Systems' Israel office announced Monday it would make hiring a priority for 2006 by adding 20 percent more jobs.

To this end, the company is planning a special recruitment program at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa on March 27, the company said in a statement.

Cadence Israel Senior VP Yoav Hollander will meet with students of computer science, computer engineering and electrical engineering and talk to them about part-time jobs at Cadence designed to ready them for eventual full-time work at the firm, according to the company statement.

"Cadence is offering work in the heart of world technology ... in the field of electronic design automation, with a combination of an environment of global high tech and a family atmosphere," Cadence Israel Director of Human Resources Eti De Leon said via the statement.

Electronic design automation is a method for producing today's tiny computer chips and semiconductors: "As market demand drives electronics companies to pack more performance and functionality into chips manufactured at ever-smaller geometries, designers begin to hit a wall of complexity -- especially as we enter the nanometer era. Today's semiconductors and electronic systems are so complex that creating them would be impossible without electronic design automation," the company Web site said.

Worldwide, the company employs 5,000 people in 63 offices and facilities, according to the firm's Web site.

In Israel, Cadence employs 90 in its development center and an additional 30 in its sales and marketing division. In terms of actual jobs, the growth in manpower represents 20 new jobs, the Cadence statement said.
