Thursday, July 05, 2012
Xilinx has announced its intention to invest $50 million in an expansion of its electronics engineering operations at the company's EMEA headquarters in Dublin and Cork. The company will recruit 45 senior silicon and electronics engineering staff for its regional headquarters in Dublin and for its engineering centre in Cork. In addition, a further 15 staff will be hired across a broad range of disciplines supporting the continued growth of Xilinx in Ireland.
Xilinx currently employs over 250 at its EMEA headquarters where it operates a research, development, engineering and IT centre in Dublin along with centralised supply, finance, legal and HR functions. The new investment is supported by Irish government through IDA Ireland.
The new investment and immediate recruitment will support the company's development work for advanced technologies and products where the Irish arm already works in tandem with Xilinx's Programmable Platforms Group (PPG) at corporate headquarters in the United States. PPG is a global organisation responsible for development and delivery of the company's industry-leading ‘All Programmable' product portfolio.
Patience is a virtue. Like most virtues, however, having it isn't always easy. Yet, there can be great rewards.
What are your Career Interests?
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.
Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.
