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 Optical Metrology Division products are used for optical overlay metrology. The portfolio of products includes unique solution packages which are based on hardware and software systems to enhance yield and effectiveness. As a world leader in its field of expertise, the division's products are the most advanced in performance (measurement accuracy of nanometers and below), reliability, ease of use and compatibility with other KLA's products.  KLA (Israel) controls over 80% of the world market sales in its field, and its products are used by every major semiconductor manufacturer around the world.  KLA Israel is located in the Migdal Haemek Industrial Park.  

Responsibilities

  

We are seeking a highly talented individual for an algorithm engineer position in AcuShape software of Patterning Division, KLA China. A successful candidate shall have demonstrated ability in scientific programming with strong working knowledge in nonlinear optimization, statistical data analysis, computational geometry, or computational electromagnetics (field theory). Knowledge of optical modeling, scatterometry and metrology is a big plus.

The candidate will be responsible for developing and improving algorithms, measurement capabilities, system optical models, calibrations development, and analysis tools for optical metrology applications. Tasks include: define future product development strategy, develop a problem statement, research into particular solutions, develop code, and test prototypes; design, code, and test/integrate into tool product software.

The position may have opportunity of global travelling to US headquarters to take training and calibration or travelling to major customers in modern Asia countries/regions within a short period each time to provide onsite technical support and interact with customers. The travel frequency would be expected to be less than 20%.

In addition, the candidate is expected to possess good oral and written skills (English) to demonstrate his or her own thoughts, communicate with other engineers and applications, locally or internationally, on a daily basis.

This position is in Shanghai, China.
