Our Company

Qualcomm started as an idea. An agreement. A pact. In 1985, seven individuals met in a den in San Diego for the purpose of creating “quality communications.” Today that den spans across more than 170 offices in more than 40 countries. The idea, however, remains the same.

Inventors at heart.

The many divisions within our business produce a vast array of technologies, but there is one thing that unites them all. They are driven to invent new ways to improve communication around the globe.


A career at Qualcomm gives you the opportunity to join in the creation of technologies that change the world.


In July 1985, seven industry veterans came together in the den of Dr. Irwin Jacobs’ home to discuss an idea, outlining a plan for “Quality Communications.”
