Tokyo Electron has more than 12,000 employees located in 12 countries around the world. Our innovation is rooted in our diversity. As a global technology leader, we actively seek out and value differences in people across the globe who collectively contribute, create, and innovate.


We value Corporate Social Responsibility and believe that our contribution to society lies not only in our leading-edge products, technologies, and services, but also in how we give back to the community and protect our environment.

TEL is committed to building a sense of community through:

  • Volunteerism and community outreach efforts
  • Environmental preservation
  • Practice of fair corporate activities
We come at challenges from different angles—and that's exactly how we approach success. Rather than specialize in one product or service, we excel in several, which means your career has the opportunity to do the same. Working in a creative environment on cross-functional global teams, you'll have the chance to prove yourself in a variety of arenas, such as thermal processing, etch systems, coater/developers, surface preparation systems, single wafer deposition, and wafer probe systems. We give our engineers the freedom to think—not just outside the box, but as far away from it as they can get. We want leaders who can take an idea, flip it upside down, see what it's made of, and find out where it can go. We hire innovators who aren't afraid of failure—after all, thinking on the edge is the only way to grow. We have several programs designed to encourage big ideas and the engineers who dream them: Technical Career Ladder For engineers who stand out among the outstanding, we offer our Technical Career Ladder. This annual program recognizes engineers who are creating the technology of the future. There are three program levels: Member of Technical Staff, Senior Member of Technical Staff, and Fellow. Participants are selected through a nomination process, and rewarded by promotions and pay raises (not to mention bragging rights!). Inventor's Inner Circle We're not a company that rests on its past laurels. That's why we reward the inventors that nudge (or push) technology forward. Our Inventor's Inner Circle rewards engineers for their patents with bonuses and company accolades.
