Graduate Wireless Software Engineer


We have an exciting opportunity for a recent and bright graduate to join our Modem Technology and Architecture team. As Graduate Wireless Software Engineer, your main goal will be to contribute to the design, implementation and verification of the modem software used in MediaTek’s latest and most advanced chipsets.

You will engage with experienced cross-disciplinary staff and will have the chance to work on the latest cellular communication standards, such as 5G NR.

The Modem Technology Architecture team is currently involved in the architecture definition, design and implementation of MediaTek’s 5G NR chipsets.  In your role as Graduate Wireless Software Engineer, you will be involved in the prototyping, implementation and verification of key software modules.  Performance (MIPS, memory) and power consumption are key metrics that we need to optimize for our products to be world-leading and in this role, you will design and learn how to use different tools to quantify these.

An interesting and varied role, this position will give you exposure to the modem architecture across the different software layers and you will also have opportunities to directly interact with hardware, DSP and standards engineers, both locally and across MediaTek’s global R&D sites.  As your skills and experience in our technology develops, you will be asked to provide your valuable insight into ways to improve our future hardware and software platforms.  Solving difficult and demanding issues will be a key motivator for you.

You’ll be…

  • A great problem solver/ creative thinker
  • Someone who enjoys picking up new skills quickly, through informal learning
  • Self-motivated and able to work both in a team and autonomously
  • Clear and concise communicator

In addition, one or more of the below would be brilliant

  • Good mathematical skills
  • Familiarity with any wireless communication system


  • Good degree in Computer Science (or equivalent)
