A diverse culture where people can accelerate
To sustain our success, it’s imperative we look after our people, and we do this in a number of ways.
First and foremost, we’re a fair, non‑discriminatory employer, committed to providing equal opportunities to all our employees.
A place to grow
We encourage everyone at u‑blox to push themselves to reach their full potential. We give our engineers time to work on their own innovations, and seek to promote from within wherever possible.
We set our people challenging but realistic targets, and provide the support they need to meet and exceed these. This includes appropriate training, enabling them to continually improve themselves in their field of expertise.
Competitive pay and a stake in our success
We like to reward great performance, and for our people to feel part of our success. Our benchmarked salaries are highly competitive, and are complemented by a bonus scheme linked to individual and company performance. We also operate an employee stock option scheme.
While we like to provide our employees with the best‑possible working environment, we don’t want them spending their whole lives at work. Striking the right balance is important for people’s well‑being and motivation, and we offer flexible working hours to fit our employees’ lifestyles. Those who have been with us for five years or more can also choose to take a sabbatical, to further their interests outside the workplace.
On top of that, the sustainability strategy of u‑blox ensures that not only employees and shareholders participate in the success of the company, but also investments in the environment and social projects are done."
I joined u‑blox not long ago, and I feel truly privileged to be part of its multi‑cultural team.
Steve Jobs (Co‑founder and long‑standing CEO of Apple) used a ‘rock tumbler’ as a metaphor to describe a team working hard on something they are passionate about. Ideas are like rocks; when rubbing them against each other with a bit of friction and a bit of noise, the outcome is really beautiful, polished ideas. This is the privilege I experience being part of the u‑blox family.”
