Marvell to Aim High in Vietnam With Better Presence

Marvell Technology, Inc. has been accelerating the growth of its workforce and presence in Vietnam. Accordingly, the company has been on track in the past year to expand R&D and engineering and design activities in the country.

Specifically, Marvell committed to 50% growth of its workforce in Vietnam in three years. The company shared the target during last year’s U.S.-Vietnam Innovation and Investment Summit attended by Marvell Chairman and CEO Matt Murphy.

Presently, Marvell is ahead of its plans, achieving more than 30% growth in just eight months. Marvell has also expanded its physical footprint in Vietnam with a new location in Da Nang, adding to its offices in Ho Chi Minh City. Thus, the growth of its footprint demonstrates the company’s commitment to creating a world-class semiconductor design hub in the country.

“We are happy with the momentum we’ve gained since we announced our design center plans last year. Including our progress in adding top engineering talent to our team and expanding our number of sites,” said Murphy.

In addition, Murphy said, “Vietnam is rapidly becoming a center of semiconductor innovation and we are committed to being part of that.”

New Design Center

A new Marvell design center facility in Ho Chi Minh City will likely open within the next year. Moreover, other Marvell engineering facilities in Vietnam are focusing on high-speed data center optical connectivity, storage, and analog and mixed-signal semiconductor technologies.

These are critical to the build-out of accelerated infrastructure to meet the rising performance and power requirements of artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud data centers.

“Marvell has been part of the technology ecosystem in Vietnam for over ten years. The company is committed to attracting the best and brightest engineering talent to its semiconductor design center in Vietnam. (Furthermore), in contributing to the growth of the country’s semiconductor community,” said Dr. Loi Nguyen, Executive Vice President of Cloud Optics at Marvell and a native of Ho Chi Minh City.

Last year, Marvell announced its plans to establish a world-class design center in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The site will be home to advanced semiconductor engineering and a top technology workplace for employees. Thus, enhancing their skills and achieving outstanding career opportunities.

To support the talent requirements of the Design Center, Marvell plans to invest in developing essential technology skills in the region. Particularly, through the newly established Marvell Excellence Scholarship Program – Vietnam. The program will support talented students pursuing degrees in engineering and computer science at selected universities in Vietnam.

Through the Marvell Scholarship program, the company is looking to develop essential engineering skills in Vietnam, increase female workforce representation across all levels and roles, and improve diversity by recruiting from low-income communities.
