KLA Careers

System Engineer 4 Mask EBeam Inspection

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, 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

With over 40 years of semiconductor process control experience, chipmakers around the globe rely on KLA to ensure that their fabs ramp next-generation devices to volume production quickly and cost-effectively. Enabling the movement towards advanced chip design, KLA's Global Products Group (GPG), which is responsible for creating all of KLA’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.

The RAPID division is the world leading provider of reticle inspection solutions for the semiconductor industry. The company provides inspection solutions to both the mask shops and the semiconductor fabs to ensure that lithography yields are consistently high thus enabling cost-effective manufacturing.

Responsibilities

  • As a system engineer on a next-generation reticle inspector using electron beams, you will help define the top-level system specifications, allocate requirements to the subsystems, calculate the system error budget, define and resolve interfaces and working parameters for the optimum hardware/software performance of the tool.
  • Apply systems engineering principles to predict tool performance to find areas for system improvement. You will apply logical and systematic conversions of the customer & market requirements to define this tool’s required operating point.
  • Create and execute tests and experiments to understand and enhance overall system performance.
  • Work with a small but experienced team to support system optimization at all levels in the tool definition, design, implementation and test.

Qualifications

  • PhD Degree in Electrical, Mechanical, Chemical, Physics, Statistics or similar.
  • 4 or more years of experience with system engineering of complex systems such as Semiconductor, Medical, Advanced Industrial, or similar fields.
  • Experience with electron beam systems such as SEM, TEM, etc.
  • Experience with complex data analysis.

Minimum Qualifications

  • M.S. or PhD degree in Engineering or Science.  
  • 4 or more years of experience with system engineering of complex systems such as Semiconductor, Medical, Advanced Industrial, or similar fields.
  • Experience with electron beam systems such as SEM, TEM, etc
  • Experience with complex data analysis.
