Founded in San Diego, California by our CEO Min-Liang Tan, and President Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, Razer began in a tiny shared office with a couple other gamers. Today, we have grown to hundred employees worldwide with offices in nine cities including San Francisco, Hamburg, Seoul, Shanghai, and Singapore.
Our vision from the very beginning was to be the world's greatest gaming brand and we've set out to achieve that by designing the best gaming products that any gamer has ever used.
We design our products based on three fundamental tenets: technology, ergonomics, and validation from the very best professional gamers. World class scientists and engineers develop cutting edge technology in-house or with partners, design products with extensive human interfacing studies and then test the hell out of them in field with pro-gamers before launch.
No other gaming hardware company boasts dedicated gaming user interface R&D labs, and our technology and designs are incubated in three design facilities located in California, Singapore and Shenzhen.
We tell it like it is: some can pretend to co-develop products with professional gamers, but gamers don't develop technology; scientists and engineers do (and ours just happen to be passionate gamers too). That said, feedback from professional gamers who use our products in high-level tournaments is invaluable to us. It is how we iterate, refine, and perfect our designs over and over again. That’s how a Razer product is built from the ground up. No marketing BS and no hype.
Not only do we work with the very best in the eSports scene, we believe in helping the community grow. We were one of the pioneers back in the early days of competitive gaming, and to this day continue to sponsor top cyber athletes and international teams with aspirations of epic glory and ever-increasing prize money. They in turn give back to Razer by testing and validating our products.
The people that work here at Razer are just like you – gamers. Some amateur, some ex-professionals, all in it for the love of gaming. Just ask our CEO, who will happily lay the smack down on you in Quake Live or our President, who has over ten level 80's on his local server. Hell, he will even take you on a raid in the middle of the work day.
We are the same gamers who are told by the suits that we need adult supervision and a professional CEO or management team to tell us how to run this company. And we're the same gamers who tell the suits exactly where to shove it because we like doing what we do - and we do it on our own terms.
We hope our passion for gaming speaks to you like it does to us, through our products and the competitive edge we bring to your game.
