Ocotillo Technology Fabrication Process Engineer
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.
The Ocotillo Technology Fabrication (OTF) Process Engineer role is multifaceted. The ideal candidate will have a passion for instrumentation and equipment with the goal of developing a robust manufacturable process module.
As an OTF Process Engineer you will play an important role in the OTF engineering team. You will be responsible for owning all aspects of one or more of the factory's 300 millimeter toolsets. Your sustaining responsibilities will include the safety and cleanliness of your area and ensuring Copy Exactly (CE!)for your toolset. You will also be expected to review the relevant control charts and tool output daily and ensure your toolset and layers remain excursion free. You will be responsible for delivering Model of Record (MOR) availability and achieving 100 percent matching for all relevant operations.
For new technology start-ups, you will be responsible for tool installations, conversions, and qualifications; and sustained matching performance. You will be expected to drive continuous improvement in the health and matching of your toolset(s) by maintaining and driving an improvement roadmap. You will be responsible for leading your tools and area to achieve record tool availability, cycle time, and record low defect densities in support of OTFs factory goals.
OTF supports a High-Volume Manufacturing. As such, your role may include elements of module-level process development in support of the factory's goal and output.
Responsibilities will include, but are not be limited to:
