Imagination is more than just a semiconductor IP company. Its focus is on solutions, including a growing portfolio of software and infrastructure technologies required for enabling system-level cloud-connected solutions. Its extensive software capabilities are a key part of Imagination’s offering and a major differentiator, from drivers and reference code through to application software such as V.VoIP software platforms and system software such as FlowCloud.
Imagination has a long standing relationship with the University of Southampton and in particular with the department of Electronics and Computer Science. For a number of years it has offered an industrial perspective to this department through the industrial advisory board.
Imagination offers competitive salaries and rewards good performance. Benefits include subsidised health club membership, a sharesave scheme, a very active Sports & Social Club with subsidised events – and a weekly Treat of the Week social on Wednesdays (with a treat to eat!)
