Soitec is a company listed in the SBF 120 index which operates upstream of the microelectronics value chain. Our innovative semiconductor materials are essential to the operation of smartphones and the deployment of 5G. They also offer numerous opportunities for connected automobiles, electric and autonomous vehicles and embedded intelligence in connected objects.
This position gives us an incredible responsibility, which inspires us every day: making possible the massive adoption of technological innovations while considerably limiting their environmental impact, in a logic of responsible innovation and sustainable development.
What does the job consist of?
At the heart of the design of our products, the materials that we source from our suppliers (Silicon, LTO, SiC, etc.) are decisive for the success of our products in terms of performance, cost and quality.
Within the Innovation department, the Materials engineer plays a key role in contributing to the definition of Soitec’s technological roadmap and bringing this innovation to our strategic suppliers.
As a materials engineer, you ensure the development of new substrates and new sources ‘in time’ for SOITEC applications.
Technical interface between SOITEC and its suppliers, you establish and manage roadmaps for the development and continuous improvement of materials concerning your supplier account or your product assignment.
You establish the technical specifications in line with our requirements and those of our customers; then coordinate and participate in the qualifications of new substrates. In the event of a deviation or crisis, you know how to take the lead and work closely with the quality, purchasing and supply chain teams.
It is therefore a profession that is both technical and involves interactions, both internally with all the players in the manufacturing process, the Business Units, purchasing, quality and the supply chain, and externally, with our strategic suppliers in Asia, US or Europe.
On a daily basis, what really spices up the position, beyond daily international exchanges, is measuring our ability to discuss on equal terms with the biggest players in the market on the basis of our technical expertise and our ability to ‘innovation.
France, Jean Baptiste and Stéphane, each with their suppliers, affirm that in these collaborations like no other, success is even sweeter…
Requirements & qualifications
- Holder of a Bac+5 Engineering degree in the field of materials physics with a specialization in semiconductor materials.
- Your technical background in material physics (semiconductor) will make it easier for you to understand the physical impact of processes on our materials. Experience in managing industrial accounts (suppliers or customers) would be a plus.
- You will need to be a facilitator of working groups both internally and capable of leading action plans with our suppliers.
