The startup is particularly looking for individuals with computer science, engineering, and design backgrounds.

"Singapore is home to a vibrant and sophisticated semiconductor industry, with a strong ecosystem of solution providers and partners. Silicon Box's decision to set up its first manufacturing and R&D facility in Singapore is a testament to our competitiveness as a critical global node for semiconductors and a vote of confidence in the long-term growth prospects of the sector in Singapore," EDB  Chairman Png Cheong Boon said.

 We will continue strengthening our industry's competitiveness by developing a stronger talent pipeline, reducing the sector's carbon footprint, and deepening our semiconductor R&D capabilities,"  the chairman added.
