Job Description

At Intel, we optimize storage and memory from device physics to platform architecture to system level solutions while collaborating with industry leaders to help our customers. We continue to invest in two core technologies: Intel Optane technology that delivers industry-leading low latency (it's super-fast) and Intel 3D NAND technology that delivers high density at low cost. F11x in Rio Rancho, New Mexico is Intel's new Development site and will focus on Optane Technology Development.

To deliver the silicon technology, the Intel Fab11X team is looking for experienced Dry Etch Technology Development Process Engineers to help develop Optane technology. As a Dry Etch Technology Development Process Engineer, you will be responsible for developing dry etch processes for successive memory technology development nodes and transferring them to high volume manufacturing. You will work closely with integration, device, and the other unit process areas to define the memory technology roadmap and turn that roadmap into reality.

The ideal candidate will have a successful track record developing dry etch processes in memory or logic, collaborating with cross-functional/cross-company teams including equipment and material vendors, and driving dry etch process improvements to achieve electrical and yield performance targets on schedule.

The ideal successful candidate will:

  • Demonstrate an in depth knowledge of dry etch fundamentals including plasma physics
  • Plan and conduct experiments to fully characterize the process throughout the development cycle
  • Have a track record of innovation and invention in the area of dry etch process, equipment and materials, working in a fab in integrated chip process development
  • Strive to achieve and deliver leading edge process capability, yield, cost and manufacturability. This will involve exceptional collaboration with cross-functional/cross-company teams and tool vendors to meet challenging program goals
  • Participate in dry etch process roadmap definition to meet requirements, goals and milestones for a new technology process
  • Define and establish flow, procedures, and equipment configuration for the module
  • Select and develop material and equipment for the process to meet quality, reliability, cost, yield, productivity and manufacturability requirements
  • Engage closely with tool vendors. Drive escalations and ensure resolution to any process and/or equipment problems
  • Drive improvements on quality, reliability, cost, yield, process stability/capability, productivity and safety/ergonomic over variables such as material, method, equipment, environment and operating personnel
  • Develop solutions to problems utilizing formal education, statistical knowledge, and problem solving tools
  • Establish process control systems for the process module and sustains the module through volume ramp
  • Develop strategy to resolve difficult problems and establish systems to deal with these problems in the future
  • Train production/receiving process engineers, engineering and manufacturing technicians for transfer to other factories
  • Transfer process to high volume manufacturing and provide support in new factory startup as well as install and qualification of the new production lines



Minimum Requirements:

  • PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Material Science, Physics or Chemistry with 5+ years of experience in Dry Etch development semiconductor industry or Master's degree in Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Material Science, Physics or Chemistry with 8+ years of experience in Dry Etch development semiconductor industry

Preferred Requirements:

  • 5 years experience with volatile and/or non-volatile memory
