Senior Process Yield Engineer

Andover, MA 01810

An opportunity currently exists in the Microelectronics Engineering & Technology (MET) Department, a part of Raytheon Missiles and Defense, as a Senior Process Yield Engineer. MET develops, designs, and manufactures compound semiconductor devices, millimeter/microwave integrated circuits, and modules for defense and commercial applications.

As a member of the MET Department, the individual in this role will serve as a yield engineer for integrated circuit processes in the RF Components production wafer fab. The successful candidate is responsible for ensuring product yield commitments are met through active yield monitoring, has an acute understanding of semiconductor process interactions, and rapidly responds to yield excursions with appropriate root cause investigations and corrective action implementation. The role also requires the candidate be forward looking to identify opportunities for yield improvement and drive cross-functional teams to achieve them.

The role is very interactive and the candidate should enjoy working in highly collaborative team environments. The ability to develop and maintain working relationships within the engineering community, production supervisors and operators is critical to achieving business goals (e.g. cost, cycletime, throughput, etc.). Additionally, this role requires daily presence on the manufacturing floor, which is located in a class 100 cleanroom requiring full body suit gowning.

This position can be a Salary Grade G08 or Salary Grade G09 based on the candidate's qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements for the position.

Required Skills:

Minimum of 4 years of experience in semiconductor processing
Broad base knowledge related to semiconductor processing, device physics, and data analysis
Understanding of integrated circuit functionality and device characterization

U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position will need a U.S. Security Clearance within 1 year of start date. Except in rare circumstances, only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance.

Desired Skills:

MS in an engineering discipline
Experience with processing of III-V compound semiconductor devices particularly Gallium Nitride and/or Gallium Arsenide
Ability to lead and coordinate technical projects with diverse and cross-functional teams
Experience in statistical process control and lean manufacturing methods
Demonstrated experience in high paced manufacturing environments
Experience with characterizing, understanding, and improving semiconductor device performance and reliability
Experience with root cause investigations and corrective action implementation
Highly skilled at multitasking, having attention to detail, and teamwork abilities

Required Education:

BS in an engineering discipline

This position requires either a U.S. Person or a Non-U.S. Person who is eligible to obtain any required Export Authorization.
