Essential Responsibilities include:

  • Supporting Process Integration engineers with a wide variety of tasks including:
    • Performing routine electrical data analyses under the guidance of the process integration engineering staff using established data analysis procedures and software
    • Performing various tasks within the Fab8 cleanroom including working with module engineers and technicians to accurately and quickly execute split-lot experiments
    • Writing and execution of experimental lot requests and then work with the factory system technicians to ensure these requests are created and implemented correctly
  • Assisting Process Integration engineering staff and management with the preparation of daily status reports and experimental reports using web-based reporting tools.
  • Interacting with fab shift supervisors, fab engineers & managers, and module, integration, yield and product engineering members on carrying out critical integration-defined priorities in support of customer prototype product lots, technology and product qualification lots and other customer-critical wafer deliverables.
  • Identifying and addressing potential areas for improvement and optimize tool availability, cycle time, utilization and cost
  • Completing all required reporting and documentation
  • Actively participating in continuous improvement processes and the Emergency Response Team
  • Training new team members as requested

Other Responsibilities:

  • Perform all activities in a safe and responsible manner and support all Environmental, Health, Safety & Security requirements and programs.

  • Demonstrated ability to operate computer workstations
  • Demonstrated ability to follow detailed instructions and procedures to complete tasks and required documentation
  • Demonstrated work performance in an environment requiring high level of attention to detail and timeliness
  • Ability to handle multiple tasks simultaneously and prioritize activities.
  • Ability to work well in a diverse, global team as a strong team player

Preferred Qualifications:

  • 2 Year Technical/Associates Degree in Science, Math, Engineering, Semiconductor Manufacturing or a related discipline or equivalent military training / industry prior experience
  • 6+ years direct experience working in a semiconductor manufacturing environment.
  • Detailed semiconductor process knowledge in one or more areas including Thin Films, Etch, Photolithography, Diffusion, Cleans, CMP, electrical test, analytical techniques is a plus.
  • Design-of-experiments (DOE), statistical process control (SPC) methodologies.
  • Knowledge of Lean, Kaizen or other productivity improvement or problem-solving methodologies
  • Knowledge of SiView SM, SM+, ECM and any route related activities.
