Job Description

As a quality and reliability engineer, you'll join a team developing leading edge semiconductor package technologies for Intel's latest products. Package reliability engineers take responsibility for setting reliability requirements to meet customer needs. We influence the design, material selection and process development of the new package technology to meet those needs. We use a wide variety of skills, from analytical models to advanced experimental designs to extensive data analysis, to evaluate and improve the package technology. Together with our technology development partners, we find the root cause of failure mechanisms and devise solutions.
Quality and reliability engineers are analytical problem solvers in a high-paced, technically challenging environment. We measure our success by delivering world-class quality on cutting edge package technologies, faster and at a competitive cost.

This job might be for you, if:

- You have an interest on semiconductor package interconnects, metallic compounds, metal diffusion and electro-migration
- You like to find problems before they find you, take complex technical challenges and delivering robust solutions. You'll keep digging until you can explain the fundamental physics or chemistry behind the failure mechanism.
- You get a kick out of analyzing mounds of data and finding a pattern. You use data to drive decisions.
- Work in a team to get results,  are persistent and can keep others focused and aligned.


- Define electrical power delivery capabilities and reliability requirements for next generation package technologies based on customer use conditions.
- Influence new package interconnect technology design, process and material capability decisions based on fundamental technical understanding of electro-migration mechanisms.
- Design test vehicles to isolate failure mechanisms and the root causes.
- Innovate analytical and experimental methods to validate package technology reliability.
- Deliver analysis results and impact to multiple levels within the quality and reliability community and business partners.

Candidate must exhibit the following behavioral traits/skills:

- Organize, discipline and ability to manage tasks and time to ensure that business needs are met.

-  Technical and analytical problem solving.

- Clarity in communication skills: able to make the complex simple and understood by a wide audience.
- Leading and influencing cross-functional teams to achieve extraordinary results. Ability to advocate for new ideas.

This is an entry level position and compensation will be given accordingly.


You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates.
