Your opportunities as experienced professional or graduate
Would you love to join an international working environment? Do you share our passion for leading-edge technology and automated test systems? Do you possess good English language skills and, above all, a pioneering spirit? Is it your goal to find the best and not simply the first solution? Then we can offer you a challenging job that will enable you to evolve professionally and personally. At Advantest, we have exciting projects and excellent development opportunities for both professionals and graduates.
Even though there are much more opportunities available at Advantest, we would like to highlight some of our key areas.
I often analyse cross-functional processes and systems to identify potential improvements and to find and harness synergies. Change management is a key part in this. It is about looking at the enterprise’s processes from A to Z; but more importantly to bring stakeholders and other employees on board – to “win their hearts and minds”. It is paramount to explain what is planned, and why. To this end, my team and I must regularly question the status quo, think laterally, and communicate in a transparent way. The very open culture at Advantest really helps me: new perspectives are not seen as a danger, but as an enrichment of one’s own viewpoint.
Bianca, Director Process Transformation
As a hardware developer specializing in semiconductor testing devices, I have twice the fun at Advantest. First, there are the highly complex technical tasks related to microelectronic circuits, combined with the use of the very latest technologies – what more could an engineer want?! And second, I find the spirit of communication here remarkable: highly diverse cultures, personalities, and disciplines, uniting their expertise to develop outstanding products – that really is what great teamwork is about.
Ayman, Technical Project Manager – Hardware Development
My journey at Advantest began with a Dual Study Program that I successfully completed in 2014. I then joined the layout team in the hardware development department. I took on smaller projects at first, then increasingly large ones, with a focus on circuit-board layouts – allowing me to make my work more professional. I am currently combining work with completing my Master’s, and Advantest again supported me with this step. At the moment, I am about to begin my thesis – I am curious to see where my path takes me from here.
Jurij, R&D Engineer – Hardware Development
I head up a team of developers in Germany who provide business-critical reporting to colleagues in Germany and Singapore. At least 40 reports go out every week that are crucial to day-to-day operations. It is a joy coming to work and being able to create this kind of value for others.
Vignesh, Data Governance and Business Intelligence Manager
Agile software development
Our aim is to convert challenging complexity into simple structures, while keeping the bigger picture in mind. We speak fluent Java and C++, get to the bottom of things, and question the status quo. Our mission? To be the best. That’s only possible if we continue to learn and evolve – in terms of how we approach customers, products, software, technologies. Our motivation? Knowing that the quality of the latest products and solutions depends – worldwide – on us and our work.
Hardware development for high-end test devices
Our goal is to go to the very limits of what is physically feasible. We are about leading-edge ASIC FPGA and hardware design – from the initial idea to the market-ready release. We consider multiple factors: highly complex structures and rich functionality, but also device versatility and pricing. Our RF and analog design work creates equipment that will empower and safeguard emerging communications technologies, such as 5G – while ourselves using state-of-the-art solutions. Our motivation? Knowing that the leading high-end test devices we develop will be crucial to the reliable implementation of ground-breaking systems such as 5G and autonomous driving.
Supply Chain Management & Business Intelligence
We strive to gain a lasting competitive advantage through innovation and continuous improvement of our global supply chain. The overriding priority is highly professional production and supplier management, including effective control of our outsourced supply chain. As a cross-functional international team, we are responsible for diverse tasks, including business intelligence (end-to-end visibility), e-commerce, cloud solutions, product engineering, product lifecycle management, quality assurance and our ecological footprint – plus strategic sourcing, trade compliance (import/export) and strategic planning. Our motivation? Knowing that our work ensures that our products work exactly as they should. And that the efficient, cost-effective and sustainable supply of our products means satisfied customers in all four corners of the globe.
Collaboration with international customers
Our goal is to work hand-in-glove with our customers – leading players in the semiconductor industry – to design and build robust, high-performance answers to their imperatives. To this end, our application engineers, product definition experts and our Center of Expertise advise and assist our customers, supporting them across the entire project lifecycle. Our motivation? Knowing that we proactively support our customers with their efforts to successfully realize their technological innovations.
Jobs for pioneers
We are can-do people who are thirsty for knowledge and who love to experiment. We are pioneers who achieve more than others – because we go the extra mile and embrace both forward and lateral thinking. Are you one of us?
