Engr, Apps Dev 3

Company Overview

Calling the adventurers ready to join a company that's pushing the limits of nanotechnology to keep the digital revolution rolling. At KLA-Tencor, we're making technology advancements that are bigger—and tinier—than the world has ever seen.

Who are we?  We research, develop, and manufacture the world's most advanced inspection and measurement equipment for the semiconductor and nanoelectronics industries. We enable the digital age by pushing the boundaries of technology, creating tools capable of finding defects smaller than a wavelength of visible light. We create smarter processes so that technology leaders can manufacture high-performance chips—the kind in that phone in your pocket, the tablet on your desk and nearly every electronic device you own—faster and better. We're passionate about creating solutions that drive progress and help people do what wouldn't be possible without us.  The future is calling. Will you answer?

Group/Division

Enabling the movement toward advanced chip design, KLA-Tencor's Measurement, Analytics and Control group (MACH) is looking for the best and brightest research scientists, software engineers, application development engineers and senior product technology process engineers to join our team.

The MACH team's mission is to collaborate with our customers to innovate technologies and solutions that detect and control highly complex process variations—at their source—rather than compensate for them at later stages of the manufacturing process.

With over 40 years of semiconductor process control experience, chipmakers around the globe rely on KLA-Tencor to ensure that their fabs ramp next-generation devices to volume production quickly and cost-effectively. Our MACH team develops leading-edge solutions for patterning process analytics and control technologies, thereby providing customers with critical insight at the feature level, field level and cross-wafer analysis. Our teams also develop advanced modeling simulation, data analytics and process control modeling technologies.

As a member of the MACH team, you’ll be joining the most sophisticated and successful process-control company in the semiconductor industry--working across functions to solve the most complex technical problems in the digital age.

 

Responsibilities

 

Responsibilities include projects related to new product introduction: definition, characterization, alpha testing, and beta testing.  The candidate will be responsible for various pre and post sales application support activities – engaging with customers in defining problem statements, resolving customer issues, generating best known method (BKM) documents and other training material, and transferring product knowledge to K-T's worldwide customer base. The candidate will have the ability to work with a customer team at customer sites to conduct investigations, gather and analyze data, understand root causes of process patterning errors, and develop and implement process tool control solutions to reduce patterning errors and improve yield. This engineer is expected to work with customers to publish papers at industry symposiums or in technical journals.

Hands-on work with KLA-Tencor metrology systems and software will be required.


 

Preferred Qualifications

MS, or PHD in Physics, Mathematics, or related engineering fields, such as optics, materials science, and microelectronics. Experience with KT process control software and concepts.

 

The ideal candidate will have process tool or applications experience with intimate familiarity in overlay, stress related error, scanner tools, lithography or etch metrology tooling and/or process development. The candidate should have basic knowledge in KT metrology. The candidate must have good oral and written communication, organizational, analytical, and interpersonal skills.  The candidate must be self-driven, yet a strong team player.  Software development and scripting skills are a plus.
