We innovate–not because it is an industry buzzword, but because it is core to our past, present and future. We value bold, inventive ideas that advance our connected world and drive semiconductor innovation. This unwavering passion is reflected in our corporate culture and is seen throughout the entire pSemi organization. From engineering and manufacturing to sales and finance, we strive to debunk the status quo and find novel ways to shape the future of electronics.
We inspire our employees to develop their full potential within an encouraging and supportive work environment. This positive culture is derived from our understanding that success is the result of hard work, and that support and recognition is essential to achieving individual and team goals. Join our team of innovators.
Working at pSemi is rewarding, both personally and professionally. That’s why we call it our Total Rewards program.
Your professional growth is our top priority. We offer our employees career advancement opportunities, training and development programs and tuition reimbursement. Our team members are leaders in their respective fields, and we encourage their professional development with a robust learning management system. If you are a design and process engineer, you’ll also have the opportunity to be a part of our award-winning patent program. In fact, the majority of our design and process engineers are listed as an inventor on a pSemi patent or patent application.
How would you describe the pSemi culture?
“People at pSemi have a can-do attitude. Employees find the most challenging problems and tackle them with a sense of ownership, determination and grit. Over the years, we have established concerted efforts where employees rally together and solve complex, multi-dimensional problems. These moments have built strong teams and long-lasting professional work relationships.
Innovation has always been a core part of our DNA. For that reason, we have attracted talented engineers who are interested in breaking known boundaries and developing new technology. In my current department of intellectual property, I am fortunate to work with engineers in all product spaces on the latest innovations of the company.”
How has pSemi impacted your career?
“pSemi has enabled me to grow and transition through multiple careers while working at one company. I began my career in RF circuit design, then transitioned to develop a brand new technology platform group, and now lead and manage our patent portfolio development. I feel fortunate to have the support from the company to explore and develop my skills in these distinctly different areas.
The breadth of every position I’ve had at pSemi has kept my work fresh, interesting and challenging. Roles at pSemi require critical thinking and outside-of-the-box solutions. This attracts and develops multi-dimensional employees. Each week, I meet new and unexpected challenges to tackle.”
How is pSemi different than other companies?
“As a long-term employee (over 20 years), I’ve seen pSemi grow through many stages of corporate life. Although we have changed greatly over this time, one thing remains the same—our ‘venture spirit.’ This phrase was coined by a Murata executive shortly after they acquired us in 2014. He said that pSemi’s venture spirit was one of reasons they wanted us to join the Murata family. The phrase so perfectly sums up what I have always felt when I think of pSemi. We have an environment and culture that embraces creativity and innovation from all employees and in all ways. We can and do compete with semiconductor companies many times our size. We created silicon-on-sapphire switches when no one thought it could be done. Then we did it again with CMOS switches. And we continue to do the same with many other products and markets.”
What does it mean that pSemi is a Murata company?
“Even before our acquisition, we punched well above our weight. Now as part of the nearly 75,000 employee Murata organization, we have access to and support technology and products that run from RF to power to sensors in markets from mobility to automotive to healthcare and IoT. Whether your role is engineering or non-engineering, pSemi has a place for you to support the organization in a way that allows us to deliver high-performing products to the most demanding customers in the world. Join us and see how you can be a part of our alchemy of success.”
How is pSemi different than other companies?
"The collaborative culture at pSemi offers opportunities to work with cross-functional teams across design, technology, marketing, operations, supply chain management etc., thereby providing a comprehensive understanding of how our engineering efforts impact the business. Additionally, pSemi is very supportive of the career development of its employees, and the company provides resources and tools to develop skills relevant for the job."
What do you enjoy most about your job?
"At pSemi, I have the opportunity to drive impact in the mobile ecosystem by working with incredibly smart and motivated colleagues to solve challenging problems across different components of front-end RFIC development."
How does pSemi focus on semiconductor innovation?
"The pSemi culture supports the idea generation and innovation process. Our leaders identify a few key initiatives that will have the greatest impact and focus on those projects, which results in advanced process technology as well as a holistic intellectual property portfolio."
At pSemi, we believe a diverse workforce offers greater growth opportunities for each individual employee and leads to a stronger, more innovative company. We view diversity and inclusion as both the acceptance and utilization in terms of visible characteristics such as gender, age and race, but also traits such as thought, knowledge, experience and viewpoint.
One of our main focus areas is to reduce the gender disparity in electrical engineering. As we work to increase the number of female engineers and managers at the company, we have created an internal program to empower our pSemi women leaders. The pSemi Female Engineers and Managers (FEM) program is designed to advance the careers of women who excel in STEM and management. The program sharpens skills in the areas of negotiation, business acumen, public speaking and executive presence through regular webinar events.
