I've just realized that I've never given any information about the company I'm working for.

To copy straight from the Ircona website
The IRCONA team is responsible for delivering a range of complex products to market both on time and to plan.

These products have generated in excess of $400M in revenues over the past eight years. We have worked with customers throughout the world, including Europe, USA and Japan, in providing Specialized Design Services.

Ircona is a world leader in high speed processor based design for SuperComputers Servers, Single Board Computers, Embedded Processing, Communications, Remote Management (embedded within products) and High Reliability.

IRCONA is also a world leader in high end complex BIOS customizations and a development partner for Phoenix Technologies, a world leader in BIOS solutions.

We are located in a 15,000 sq. ft., state of the art facility, in West Dublin, close to the M50 and Dublin Airport.

Our main services are BIOS customization, Outsourced Development, Neatshore DEsign Services, Test Services and iTess Services. We have a range of highly qualified engineers who have been working together for the last 10-15 years. Although Ircona itself is only about 8 years old, the majority of the staff here used to work for the R&D section of Stratus Technologies working on Fault Tolerant systems such as the Continuum ftserver range. With this kind of history and symbiosis as a team, we are one of the best, if not the best in the market at the moment for outsourced development and BIOS customization.

In the last year, we became the Master Distributor Phoenix Technologies in BIOS customization, which puts us in a great position for BIOS, UEFI development at both OS and embedded levels.

We are also currently hiring the following positions and we don't hire from recruitment agencies.

Marketing Executive, Graduate Level
Graduate Engineer Embedded Software
Graduate Engineer Hardware Design
