Careers at MCube, Inc

Why work for us

mCube is a fabless semiconductor company founded in 2009 and based in San Jose, California. mCube is the provider of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) motion sensors for the Internet of Moving Things. From smartphones and tablets to smart clothing and wearables, the Internet of Moving Things (IoMT) is where the movement and context of everyday objects and devices can be measured, monitored and analyzed, generating data and insights. By 2020, analysts predict more than 50 billion devices will be connected to the Internet and a large percentage of those devices will be in motion. mCube’s monolithic, single-chip technology platform enables it to provide motion sensors that are small as a grain of sand. mCube was founded by Charles Yang and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers in 2009. Led by Ben Lee, President and CEO, mCube is privately held and backed by venture and strategic partner investors including DAG Ventures, iD Ventures America, Keytone Ventures, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Korea Investment Partners, MediaTek and SK Telecom (China) Ventures, receiving $37M in its latest, Series C round of funding. mCube has developed a monolithic single-chip MEMS+ASIC product, confirmed by Yole Développement in March 2014 as the world’s smallest accelerometer. With over 100 patents filed to date, mCube integrates a MEMS sensor with ASICs onto a single die using standard CMOS processes. This approach enables sensors to be easily manufactured and designed into a broad range of applications. Single-chip MEMS+ASIC devices are cost effective, consume little power and feature high performance. These advancements make it possible to place one or more motion sensors onto nearly any object or device. In some cases, these MEMS motions sensors can be embedded directly onto a device without requiring a package, which saves considerable cost and space. mCube motions sensors have been adopted in a range a smartphone and tablet reference designs and are featured on the approved vendor lists of leading chipset partners.
