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?


The ICOS Vision Systems division focuses on the backend of the line semiconductor industry providing fully automated tools to inspect and sort, finished integrated circuit packages.  For more than 15 years, ICOS has been a market leader with tray-to-tray and tray-to-tape inspection and sorting tools found in the production facilities of all major chipmakers in the world. Our market-leading technology and superior customer service requires strong talent in optics, machine control, algorithms and applications within our engineering teams.  The ICOS division headquarters are in Leuven, Belgium with additional engineering and manufacturing operations in Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China.


You will play a key role in the design and development of optical inspection and metrology systems in the fast-changing semiconductor world to enable innovations like self-driving cars and Artificial Intelligence.

You’ll be part of an Engineering team that is focused on the design and development of 2D & 3D dimensional measurement and defect detection solutions. A wide variety of disciplines are combined in this work. Performing feasibility studies on existing products, design new inspections and build prototypes to test and validate them, write functional requirements for the algorithm and user interface software teams are all part of the job.

The Product Engineer typically spends a good deal of her/his time in the lab. When new solutions are being installed at customers (mostly in South East Asia) Product Engineers help with the introduction of these new systems on site. Candidates should therefore be prepared and able to travel and spend some time away from home. On average, the time that one spends away from home per year remains under 30% in total.


You graduated as industrial/civil engineer or Master of Science and have 2 to 5 years of experience in the industry. You have broad scientific skills who enable you to get things done in a multidisciplinary environment and effectively solve real customer problems. You’re not afraid to make your hands dirty in the lab.
Knowledge or experience in the fields of optics, image processing and/or project management are a plus.

You are a team player who likes to work together with other people. Since many different teams are typically involved in a project, good communication skills are essential. This includes communication with multicultural teams.

You can speak and write English fluently.
