Body area networks is a hot area, and Holst is one of the best in that area, and with new partnerships it should attract the cream of the crop in multi-disciplinary specialties that this area requires. Medical electronics is a growing market where reliability, safety and security are paramount. I'm sure that the offers to North American engineers will be enticingly adequate.

Most companies, at least in the US and Canada, are no longer offering relocation packages on the (sadly, often correct) assumption that the applicant needs the job enough to bear the costs on their own. The main issue for US-based applicants is that maybe one quarter, in some areas up to one third, are 'underwater' on their mortgages and if they can sell their house, will also need cash to make up the difference. That is what is causing a geographic skills mismatch between job and applicant, which was not such a great issue a few uears ago. :(

Adding 20 people to a relatively small company of only 165 people is quite a move upward. It's nice to see new engineering jobs created like this. Now if they will only let everyone work remotely or pay relocation from the United States they will find a lot of interested people!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
