Altera's a great place to work. Too bad US-based job opportunities are disappearing.

Embedded Applications Engineer (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsThe group I work in is excellent. Good manager, good people, good work/life balance. The variety and scope of technical work is unlike any I've had in my career. From software to hardware, this is easily the most interesting job I've ever held. I hope to stay for a few more years (at least).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
