KLA Careers

UI Software Engineer

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?


Enabling the movement toward advanced chip design, KLA'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 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.



We are looking for a software engineer with experience in the Microsoft Visual Studio C#/C++, and Qt development environment. The candidate must be skilled in modern development practices, including object oriented design, design patterns, and automated unit testing. Knowledge of software architecture fundamentals is also required.

The software engineer will be a technical contributor on our lithography and etch patterning commercial software development team working on challenging problems in the semiconductor production domain. The product development includes new product releases as well as maintenance releases in the areas of mathematical data analysis algorithms, graphical data representation and user interfaces, database storage and management, real-time data processing and others. Key attributes of the successful candidate are being a self-starter, problem solver, collaborative team player, and high productivity contributor.


  •  Rich software development skills in multiple programming languages: PHP, Javascript, jQuery, Perl, Bash, C/C++, Python

  • Extensive work experience in Web-based applications using one or more of the following technologies: Node.js, HTML5/CSS

  • Thorough understanding of distributed/multi-threaded/parallel processing applications in Linux environment

  • Basic and solid understanding of HW and SW stacks in Linux/VM environment

  • Experience with MySQL database application integration

  • Effective communication skill, both verbal and written

  • Ability to understand the big picture while being detail oriented

  • Passion for UI and providing data to semiconductor customers
