Intel Process Engineer Entry Level in Albuquerque, New Mexico
Job DescriptionIntel leads the semiconductor industry by creating innovative technologies. From strained silicon, to high-k metal gate technology, to the world’s first 3-D Tri-Gate transistor in production on the 22nm process, our Process Engineers have a passion for leading the industry and changing the world.
As an Intel Process Engineer, you’ll join a team helping to develop the most efficient means for semiconductor manufacturing, enabling microprocessors to do more with less – less energy, fewer resources and smaller real estate. Process engineers, along with yield and equipment engineers, take responsibility for monitoring and controlling wafer fabrication and product performance; managing tool productivity, maintenance and yields; conducting data analysis to improve processes; and managing quality measurement for 32nm technology and below. Together with these engineers, you’ll take a demanding set of functions and turn them into the computing technology that transforms how the world works, plays, learns and communicates. If you are looking for a position where you can see the end results of your work making a real impact on the tech world and on real experiences, this is the team for you.
Your responsibilities may include:
Designing and planning the layout for such processes as laminating, etching, plating, roughening, mechanical drilling, laser drilling, photolithography, and other material processing operations
Planning the sequence of operations and specifying procedures for preparing basic material
Exercising judgment in compromising between conflicting requirements, economic evaluation of methods, and operator effectiveness and comfort
Conducting tests and measurements throughout stages of production to determine control over such variables as temperature, density, specific gravity, pressure, and viscosity
Establishing and submitting processing requirements to be met in designing and acquiring processing equipment
Responding to customer/client requests or events as they occur
Developing solutions to problems utilizing formal education and judgment
This position may require the ability to temporarily relocate to another Intel site and/or work a modified shift.
An ideal candidate would exhibit behavioral traits that indicate:
strong analytical mind with problem solving skills
ability to work independently and manage stakeholders
ability to deal with ambiguity in defining activities and direction
passion for the job
high motivation with a strong work ethic
good planning skills
excellent written and verbal communication skills
