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?


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. Enabling the movement towards advanced chip design, KLA-Tencor's Global Products Group (GPG), which is responsible for creating all of KLA-Tencor’s metrology and inspection products, is looking for the best and the brightest research scientist, software engineers, application development engineers, and senior product technology process engineers.

First to deliver the best imaging and classification data for every defect or point on any layer at any time.

EBeam’s mission encapsulates its role as the “eyes” of KLA-Tencor’s product line, providing timely information on defects and critical locations on the wafer at the highest spatial resolution possible.  Customers use EBeam products alongside KLA-Tencor patterned and bare wafer inspectors to quickly understand the nature of defects and other imperfections on product wafers and take action to correct the manufacturing process.


At KLA-Tencor we don't just work on bleeding edge, we define bleeding edge. The Software driving our eBeam Inspection/Review tools enables our Customers to create next generation of processor technologies. You will apply all of the Computer Science skills you’ve learned and acquire a few more tricks to take your Software skills to the next level of controlling a tiny particle, which in our case is electrons.

We are looking for Software Engineers passionate about Object Oriented Programming and Clean Code. You will be right at home if TDD, Code Smells, Refactoring and Design Patterns are how you think. If you believe a code is not done when it works, done only when it is elegant, clean and has automated Tests to cover it, you are just the Candidate we are looking forEven though we prefer C#, being Polyglot helps.

We are a truly passionate team, thus if you’re passionate about Software you will love working with us;

  • Data Structures and Algorithms skills will be utilized for Optimizing the throughput of our tool
  • Abstraction and Architecture skills helps in easing the complexity of the problem at hand
  • Data analysis and Big Data helps to give life and meaning to the huge amount of data that our tools generate
  • Image processing, Machine learning and Deep Learning skills will help in creating intelligent software that delights our customers
  • And your Windbg and GDB skills will be really helpful when we are debugging complex problems

You will be working in a highly motivated Agile team and building Enterprise IoT solution using .net Framework.  Just when you thought it couldn’t get better, it does!  We work at the limits of Physics!. You don't need to be an expert in Physics, just having an interest in learning Physics and Optics will help.  If you loved reading The Martian and Artemis, and when you see F=ma you get curious enough to debate whether to model this as a Newton's Second Law class or a simple C# expression, you will feel right at home.

Come join us, lets create the future together one electron at a time.
