Chinese tech unicorn ByteDance is on a hiring spree related to chip development, according to a Wednesday report by Chinese media outlet China Star Market. The company has recently filled or is looking to fill titles covering semiconductor fields such as system on chip (SoC) and core design, analysis of model performance, and chip security, the report states. ByteDance’s chip team has three sectors – server chips, AI chips, and imaging chips. According to China Star Market, the new head of server chips was previously a senior employee at Qualcomm, while the report also claims ByteDance has recently poached staff from Huawei’s Hisilicon and Arm to develop its own independent chips.
