NM DMO Litho Metrology Development Engineer
As a Photo Lithography Metrology Engineer, you'll be a member of Intel's High Volume Manufacturing (HVM) fabrication process team that is driving innovation for the next generation of silicon products. You will play a critical role in the manufacturing and development of silicon bridge, silicon photonics, and advanced packaging processes, yield improvements, and HVM solutions. Partner with Process Integrators to develop recipes for new product demands.
Experienced Process Development Engineers are capable of developing processes to meet the needs of next generation semiconductor devices in Silicon Photonics, EMIB, and/or Advanced packaging technologies. They define and implement new processes and/or improves existing processes to meet process technology needs. Provide technical ownership of characterization data methodology, analysis techniques, and recipe setup for quality control to optimize yield. They would define and implement project roadmaps, quality control, failure analysis, and testing methodologies to meet customer demands.
Development Engineers are responsible for leading process development research enabling manufacture of innovative device architectures coupled with the realization of these architectures. They will design, execute, and analyze experiments necessary to meet design specifications for their process.
They participate in the development of intellectual property and develop the equipment necessary to exploit the understanding gained in research (in collaboration with equipment suppliers). Work effectively with the equipment supplier to identify shortcomings, propose, and evaluate hardware modification to mitigate issues. They will be expected to partner with area engineers, technicians, integration, SGL (Shift Group Leader), and management in order to enable development commitments for their aligned tech node.
They will work to gain in-depth knowledge of their materials, process, and equipment to meet quality, reliability, cost, yields, and product development timelines. Define HVM transfer deliverables for their module. Partner with Process Integrators to develop recipes for new product demands.
As the Photo Lithography Metrology Engineer, you will be responsible for but not limited to:
BKM (best known method) writing/documentation: ex. preventative maintenance procedures, error recoveries.
Processing techniques, materials, and metrology relevant to discipline of specialty.
Development of novel (new) metrology recipes.
Drive improvements on quality, reliability, cost, yield, process stability/capability, productivity and safety/ergonomic over variables such as material, method, equipment, environment, and operating personnel.
Train production/receiving process engineers, engineering, and manufacturing technicians for transfer to other factories.
Transfer process to high volume manufacturing and provide support in new factory startup as well as install and qualification of the new production lines.
Experience in data analysis and statistical process control.
Work frequently with internal and external customers.
The ideal candidate should exhibit the following behavioral traits:
Have good time management skills, is self-motivated, and have strong desire to succeed in a fast-paced and challenging environment.
Resourceful and have strong problem-solving skills.
Demonstrated strong team dynamics, able to work through complex issues with a diverse team.
Strong written and verbal communication. Ability to communicate well with all levels of the organization.
Detail oriented problem solver, sense of urgency and commitment to achieve targeted goals.
Demonstrated capability working in a high performing team culture which includes excellent teamwork and leadership skills.
Demonstrated problem solving and prioritization skills and participating in Continuous Improvements through applying LEAN principles.
Willingness to work independently with limited direction, as well as in a team environment across functional and organizational boundaries is required.
Demonstrated experience to work with external and internal partners.
Full time onsite required during training, estimated 6 months. After training: hybrid “work from home” to be defined by manager and employee but continued onsite will be required.
You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates.
The candidate must have a Bachelor's degree or higher in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Material Science, Physics, Chemistry or an equivalent field,
3+ years of industry experience.
Demonstrate experience of Statistical Process Control (SPC) or Design of Experiments (DOE) principles.
In-depth knowledge and practical experience with Lithography process and Litho-Metrology (Overlay, CD modulation, CD-SEM, OCD).
Experience in tool ownership, sustaining (defect performance, Availability, Utilization, down tool response, and other factory metrics).
5+ years of Litho-Metrology experience in the industry.
