Process Engineers are highly motivated individuals with strong technical background and capabilities to sustain, ramp, and transfer 32nm and beyond technologies using state of the art equipment and materials in one or several of the following areas: Thin Films (ALD, CVD, PVD, Plating), Thermal (Diffusion, RTA, EPI), Planar, Implant, Litho, Etch (Wet, Dry), or Metrology. They will drive rapid continuous improvements in safety, quality, yield, reliability, cost, process stability/capability, and productivity while maintaining rigorous standards within the Intel factory network. Job duties include sustaining ownership of day-to-day operations, equipment troubleshooting and mentoring technicians across all shifts to deliver best-in-class results for tool availability, cycle time, defects and parametric performance. Hands-on participation with frequent factory floor presence is expected. The job also includes developing solutions to problems utilizing formal education, statistical knowledge, and problem-solving tools as well as developing strategy to prevent the problem from recurring in future. May also require transfer of the process to high volume manufacturing and participation in factory start-up as well as install and qualification of the new production lines. Behavioral traits for this position include strong communication skills, sense of urgency, self-direction, integrity, teamwork, leadership skills, strong problem solving, and attention to detail. Position is for day or night shift.
Must have an MS or PhD in Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Material Science, Microelectronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry or Physics and 3-5 years semiconductor processing experience, or a Bachelor degree in these same fields with at least 7 years of semiconductor processing experience.
-Experience indifusion processes and tools ( Ultra Shallow-Junction Anneal, Rapid Thermal,Vacuum, robotics, electronics, Anneal, RTA)
- A demonstrated ability to support manufacturing technicians and interact with on site vendor field service engineering
- Must have technical expertise within Semiconductor Processing engineering and be able to provide technical direction on all quality issues.
- Demonstrated the capability of working in a high performing team culture which includes: excellent teamwork and leadership skills, demonstrated problem solving and prioritization skills, and driving high performance maintenance goals for the group.
-Experience with design of experiments (DOE) principles and statistical methods
-Experience in data extraction & analysis tools (JMP, SPC, MatLab, Mathematica, etc.)
-Experience in defect reduction and failure analysis techniques
-Must be able to work modified shifts as needed to support Intel business needs -May be required to temporarily relocate to another Intel site for technology transfer training
Experience Required3-5 years
