Life at pSemi

Joel Keller

VP, Finance and Corporate Controller

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 74,000+ 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 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 has pSemi impacted your career?

“pSemi has given me the opportunity to grow my career, allowing me to progress to more advanced and challenging roles on a regular basis. I started as an intern in 2006 and now have significant responsibility and influence on our strategy and technology development.”

How does pSemi focus on semiconductor innovation?

“pSemi spends heavily on R&D. We have numerous ongoing projects to advance RF SOI technologies and create state-of-the-art RF products. We try to envision the future of our industry and select short-, medium- and long-term developments that will bring that vision to reality.

pSemi has a spirit of innovation, and our team works hard together to change the status quo. pSemi is a company where people come together to help each other develop never-before-seen products and technologies.”

What does it mean that pSemi is a Murata company?

“As a global leader in electronics, Murata is well known and respected in the industry. We are able to leverage the strength of Murata as an organization and brand to open doors and create solutions that pSemi could never have done on its own. We have the strength of a 74,000+ employee company and the nimbleness of a much smaller firm. It is truly the the best of both worlds.”
