GlobalFoundries: Upcoming Events
by Paul McLellan on 07-11-2014 at 9:01 am

 GlobalFoundries is running a series of technical seminars in the US and Europe, following on from the successful versions run last month in Shanghai and Hsinchu. Among the topics that will be discussed are Foundry 2.0 and Collaborative Device Manufacturing for both Leading Edge and Mainstream technologies. The European events are in early October followed by the US events, as in the table below.

GlobalFoundries also has around 130 openings in Malta NY at Fab 8, and have announced that they will be hiring as many as 800 people this year in total. With the recent announcement that GlobalFoundries will be running an identical process to Samsung at 14nm, then this fab is going to be running a truly state-of-the-art process and I’m sure some high volume customers will be using both fabs for security of supply.

Also, coming up on Monday July 14th is not just National Day for France bit it is interview week in Malta. The GlobalFoundries job board, including a link if you want to attend interview week, is here. There are opening for pretty much all positions involved in running a state-of-the-art fab.


If you want to see a CNBC video about it from a couple of months ago then it is here. I don’t seem to be able to embed it. But here is a transcript anyway:you know malta is about 20 miles north of the state capital of albany and it’s not the first place that you would think of when you hear high-tech manufacturing but there is a 3 million square foot campus with a massive chip making facility here. and this year, global foundries plans to hire 600 to 800 new workers adding to its 2200 person work force. all at good salaries. here’s mike bruiseso. i can tell you that an average salary high to low end, is about 90,000 for a rollup for a salary. so what kind of workers are they looking for? all kinds. they need engineers with four-year degrees, they need technicians with associates degrees that are basically the mr. fix its of this manufacturing process. now, we can’t show you the real facility because it’s a clean. we’re not allowed in here. before anyone starts working here the head of technical training says they have to come to this lab to learn about the thousand step process it takes to make a single semiconductor and about the multimillion-dollar machines it takes to run that process. it allows them to learn how to use workmanship skills, hand tools, things like that, and then it also takes them through a trouble shooting component through the megatronics portion, learning how electronics, mechanical, pneumatics, all these things tail together to create an assembly line. now when global fountries opened the plant in 2012 most of the workers were from overseas but it’s been working with community colleges and local high schools to basically start classes that would help them get the workers they need with the skills they need. global foundries wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for an aggressive tax package and aggressive sales pitch from the state of new york, though, and we’re going to have more on that story
