Job Description

Join Intel-and build a better tomorrow. Intel is in the midst of an exciting transformation, with a vision to create and extend computing technology to connect and enrich the lives of every person on Earth. So join us-and help us create the next generation of technologies that will shape the future for decades to come.

About the group:

The Components Research Electron Beam Lithography team works closely with integration, device and the other fab modules to quickly convert next-gen research proposals into reality.

We do litho at a rapid-prototyping pace in the RP1 fab to help Intel get ahead. This position is for a lithography module engineer to support and enable this work.

About the role:

Litho engineers are responsible for:

  • Ensuring safety protocols are kept up-to-date, understood, and followed by all litho tool users.

  • Continuously improving module patterning and alignment capabilities and communicating these results with program stakeholders.

  • Training of technicians and other engineers to use these tools.

  • Maintaining maximum uptime and availability of e-beam writers, tracks, and litho metrology tools.

  • Working closely with device, integration, other module engineers, and technicians to write and align patterns and measure the results.

  • Communicating and coordinating experiments with the rest of the litho module and the fab, both at daily morning pass downs and throughout the day as circumstances change.

Activities include ownership of multiple tools, including ensuring proper maintenance. This includes both working directly with supplier engineers as well as performing hands-on work by the tool owner as needed. There will be ongoing collaborations with suppliers to develop these tools as well.

We're constantly working on making a more connected and intelligent future, and we need your help. Change tomorrow. Start today.
