Global Operations

MediaTek is headquartered in Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan and has 27 sites across the globe. Apart from the US, UK, Finland, Singapore, and India, we continue to expand and leverage our presence in emerging markets such as Southeast Asia, Africa, China, and India. All with the goal to provide people all throughout the world with new opportunities made possible by innovative technologies, and thus putting our brand mission into practice.

MediaTek has been expanding globally since its inception, displaying ceaseless, innovative R&D capabilities with the help of thousands of R&D personnel worldwide. We have collaborated closely with global ecosystems, working together with our international partners to promote popularization of 5G applications. We facilitate technical communication between our global sites and our Taiwan headquarters through regular R&D exchange activities and collaboration systems. We are active in attracting local talent at all our operational sites, and are tireless in hiring talented individuals, adjusting our management styles to fit with local needs, and providing benefits that comply with local cultures. This will foster an environment where MediaTek employees throughout our global offices can enjoy the best working environments and experiences, and thus be inspired to develop innovative products and attain leadership in our target markets.

  • We have invested considerably in R&D resources and recruited experienced technical personnel from various fields into our 20 plus teams throughout the US. One-third of our employees graduated from leading institutions around the world and hold a PhD degree. In 2019, we invited Professor John P. Shen from Carnegie Mellon University as our advisor in the development of AI technology. We hired 27 interns at our sites in California, Massachusetts, and Texas. 77% of these interns came from Top 50 US universities in the engineering field (according to US News & World Report), and over 40% were PhD students from top US universities.
  • In 2019, MediaTek conducted a number of academic exchanges with local universities and arranged for students to visit our local offices. During such activities, our engineers talked about career development, which indirectly promoted STEM education to students, teachers, and presidents. MediaTek was honored to receive gratitude from the local government due to its influence in the cultivation of local ICT talents.
  • In the UK, MediaTek has established sites at Kent and Cambourne. In order to broaden our talent acquisition scope and provide learning opportunities, annually we open internship positions for students.
  • More than 93.8% of managers at overseas sites are local hires.
  • MediaTek accommodates different cultures with flexible management and benefits. In Singapore, where our employees hail from the highest diversity of nationalities, we have implemented a flexible benefits policy so our employees can choose their own vacation times; we have also included subsidies for plane tickets to and from home and expenses for visa applications for employee family members as part of our benefits packages.
  • For important local festivals, such as Diwali and Holi in India, or Christmas in Western countries, we also host company-wide activities and cordially invite all our employees to participate.
