Job Description

Engineers within Intel's Logic Technology Development (LTD) organization are chartered with continuing to meet the challenge of Moore's Law in the 21st century. We innovate leading edge fabrication process and continue to overcome seemingly impossible barriers as tolerances and specifications for building best-in-class computing devices become increasingly rigorous.


The LTD Process Development Engineer's role encompasses ownership of both equipment and process techniques, with the goal of developing the next generation process technology and making it production-worthy at high volume. This position will be in one of the Front End Thin Films Deposition (physical vapor deposition, chemical vapor deposition, or atomic layer deposition) or Epitaxial Growth modules.


Responsibilities of a Process Development Engineer might include:

  • Establish and build upon existing partnerships with external vendors and internal organizations to develop or enhance semiconductor process tools to meet or exceed key process targets

  • Design, execute, and analyze experiments to produce films which meet or exceed key performance indicators

  • Operate and support the manufacturing line by establishing safe operating procedures, monitoring equipment performance, and providing after hours on-call escalation

  • Investigate new and innovative ways to improve module efficiency and effectiveness by leveraging automation tools and scripts

  • Demonstrate process capability (recipe stability, equipment uptime, etc) at high volume

  • Transfer the complete manufacturing process (recipes, tool configuration, procedures, etc) to counterparts in high-volume factories around the world

  • Install and qualify process tools

  • Audit installation and qualification of production tools at high-volume factories and supervise first full loop at the site


Successful candidates should possess the following behavioral traits:

  • Demonstrated technical problem-solving skills in which complex problems are rapidly analyzed and a solution path identified

  • Ability to be self-directed and show initiative when tasks are ambiguous

  • Effective communication skills and ability to succinctly summarize complex data sets for technical and non-technical audiences

  • Ability to successfully work on teams composed of individuals with differing levels of knowledge and expertise, working toward a common goal or outcome
