We’re looking for a technically-literate commercial leader to champion the development of a new business area in Semiconductor Technology.  This is a senior role drawing on both technical insight and commercial acumen to shape and lead the development and promotion of a new capability area based on Cambridge Consultants’ decades of experience in semiconductors and growing interest from our clients.

Cambridge Consultants has a world-class pedigree in semiconductor development.  Our work in this area lead to the creation of market-changing technology platforms and businesses including the world’s first single-chip Bluetooth IC which was spun out to form Cambridge Silicon Radio (CSR).  CSR was later bought by Qualcomm and Samsung for $3Bn.  Today our team are advising major brands on the design and development of ASICs, implementing large-scale FPGA designs and exploring the next wave of integrated quantum and MEMS technologies.

This role will involve working with senior leaders across the business to form a team and set the strategy for our SemiTech Capability.  You will work globally and across all the market sectors in which we operate to identify how our semiconductor expertise can help our clients create breakthrough innovations.  You will support our wider business development team in presenting our expertise to clients helping them identify and define appropriate services to offer.

You will be the internal and external face of semiconductor technology at Cambridge Consultants.  You will work closely with our marketing team to promote the capability and will most like deliver conference presentations and written thought-leadership marketing.

You will work with our engineering leadership and company-wide team of technologists to foster a community-of-practice, define recruitment needs and champion internally funded research projects.

This is an incredible opportunity for you to take our semiconductor technology business to a new level.  We offer a diverse, fun and challenging work environment where you'll have the backing of senior management to set the strategy and be responsible for the success of this high-potential business area.
