Company description

Ask anybody about Intel and the first thing that comes to mind is chips. We’re extremely good at them – but really that’s only the tip of the iceberg. What we’re interested in is making the future better, more amazing for everyone on the planet. So we’re constantly rethinking what that future might hold. From drones to wearables, makers to gamers and cutting-edge technology to sports, we’re helping innovators and creators push science and creativity forward for the benefit of everyone.

It's time to re-think.

This is not some idle boast. At Intel, both the work we do and the people we do it with are driven by a passion for improvement through both innovation and business. We’re continually rethinking, looking for new, innovative ideas that can disrupt, transform and change the world.

Our Leixlip campus is home to a semiconductor wafer fabrication facility which produces 14nm process technology on 300mm wafers – silicon microprocessors that are at the heart of a variety of platforms and technology advancements which are essential to the way we learn, live and work today.

In an effort to more than double Intel’s available manufacturing space in Ireland, we have invested an additional $7 billion from 2019 to 2021 in an ongoing expansion at our Leixlip campus. This investment is designed to bring Intel’s latest generation 7nm process technology to Ireland and will generate 1,600 permanent high-tech jobs.

Beyond our fabrication facility, VPU IP Movidius, an Intel company, is rethinking the future of computer vision and artificial intelligence. By delivering low-power, high-performance System on a Chip platforms for accelerating perceptual computing, VPU IP Movidius is pushing the boundaries of a new era of computing, enabling ground-breaking levels of intelligence for drones, robots, cameras, virtual and augmented reality.

Intel Shannon’s Research and Development (R&D) campus is a Centre of Excellence, for network transformation and cloud computing that is transforming our connected world. At Intel Shannon we are committed to creating positive and tangible impacts across our technologies, the network, and people. Opening our doors in 2000, our innovative and vibrant R&D site has grown to almost 300 employees and is home to award winning multidisciplinary teams. We believe in a dynamic and diverse work culture. Our employees work alongside people from across the globe who are passionate about technology and have the opportunities to enrich the world.

Who We Hire
