ROADMap Systems is a VC-funded startup company spun out of the University of Cambridge in 2014, developing the next generation of optical switching technology.

As the expanding population of internet users demand increasingly data-rich services, the loads on global telecomm and data centre network capacities are growing rapidly. Existing switching networks lack the capacity to meet this burgeoning demand, and current switching technology is too expensive to simply scale current network architectures.

Our technology provides a step change in switching capacity over the state-of-the-art, and will revolutionise the capabilities of both telecom and datacom networks.

To deliver this technology to market we are looking for highly-motivated scientists and engineers to join our world-class team. We are recruiting for positions across a range of experience levels, including recent graduates, post graduates and those with a proven track record in either industry or academia.

Successful candidates will have the opportunity to make an immediate impact on the development of our revolutionary technology, in a collaborative, entrepreneurial working environment.

If you are interested in joining this world-class team, please contact our Office Manager, Helen Snook (  In return we can offer a competitive salary, share options, pension and generous holiday allowance.  By submitting a direct application, you acknowledge and accept the terms in our privacy policy.

Kindly, no agencies please. We deal with a preferred list of appointed recruitment agencies only. Unsolicited CVs sent via agencies will be treated as direct applicants – no fees whatsoever will be payable for candidates introduced via unsolicited CVs.
