The new office opens following a period of significant growth, and Bristol chosen for its heritage, its university links and the quality of life offered by the city.
The company is now looking to expand both in Bristol and its other offices across the UK, initiating a recruitment drive both graduate and senior levels.
The design cente joins EnSilica’s existing headquarters and design facility near Oxford, and a design centre in Sheffield. The company also has a specialist centre in Bangalore, India and a design facility in Porto Alegre, in southern Brazil.

The university is a leading centre of excellence for electronics. And the quality of life that the city offers means that many of those we’re hoping to employ will want to be there.
