“What is also interesting is the diversity of topics and projects offered.


I have less than two years of experience and I have already worked on analog, digital and power electronics topics. I worked with FPGAs, microcontrollers. The variety is interesting. »


“Do we rather want a young, dynamic team, to be surrounded by competent people, with freedom as we felt during our internship?


I think if these are the things we are looking for, ELSYS Design is a very good candidate to work in this context.”


“What attracted me to ELSYS Design, first of all, was the great potential about training. And that was confirmed: since my arrival here, I have participated in two great training courses in Xilinx design and UVM verification.


In addition, the teams in Aix en Provence are very united, there is a very good dynamic and a very good working environment.


Furthermore, now that I have been here for more than two years, I can corroborate the very human side of the company, it is not just a value written on a website.”


“If I stayed at ELSYS Design once again it was for the verification expertise, but also because I have a living environment which is still very cool.


Whether geographically, technically given that we are surrounded by many experts and humanly too, I have a team that is great.


It makes us just want to stay here.”


“I joined ELSYS Design at the end of my studies because I really liked the technical environment in terms of knowledge of the embedded world in general since ELSYS really has expertise in this area.


Furthermore, all the projects that were offered to me were really challenging, corresponded to my skills, it was totally in line with what I wanted to do. »


“Before joining MECAGINE, what I was looking for was a company that was an expert in its field, with real versatility in terms of projects and being able to see as many things as possible as quickly as possible to really gain in mechanical expertise.


And since I’ve been at MECAGINE, so in three years, I’ve really had the opportunity to experience that on a daily basis.”


“What I like about AViSTO is, above all, the place of people, who are truly at the center of the company. […]


What I also like is the variety of projects that we are offered, which are very interesting from a technical and functional point of view. Finally, the atmosphere, which is very fun.”


“Software development, if you like it, it’s what we do best.


All this technical sophistication in the projects.
