From semiconductor process development and manufacturing, through yield improvement to final test and optimization, and lastly advanced die prep and packaging. Employees in the Manufacturing and Operations Group are part of a worldwide network of manufacturing, advanced packaging, and assembly/test facilities.

You will be joining the growing site of Intel New Mexico, which is the home for our most advanced packaging technologies and the Technology Development hub for our Silicon Photonics and 3D-Xpoint memory initiatives.

As a Quality and Reliability Engineer, you will be part of a CQN (Corporate Quality Network), Intel's Quality and Reliability organization. We are strong believers in partnership, collaboration, and teamwork. You will work closely with the fab module engineers, process integrations, and others to extract and analyze the needed reliability data for our High-Volume processes or our new technologies' certification and products qualification.

Your key roles will include develop, apply, and maintain procedures, monitors and reliability stresses which are needed to ensure our products quality and reliability. Using data extraction tools, custom scripts, and statistical analysis techniques, you will need to independently extract, analyze, assess, and present inline and end of line data to track our key quality and reliability indicators and flag for any risk. In the case of a miss process or signal from one of our monitors, you will lead a team to identify the root cause and perform risk assessments to disposition the impacted material. Additionally, you'll be responsible for collaborating with Ad-hoc teams to solving complex technological/reliability problems as well as setting and driving a strong quality culture

Our site, your next working place, is located at Rio Rancho, on the outskirts of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Intel is located at the heart of a growing and vibrant community, but still a short driving distance from beautiful parks with endless year-round outdoor activities.
