Cleanroom Engineer

Job TitleCleanroom Engineer



Job Description:

As cleanroom engineer, you will conduct day-to-day wafer moves within a class 100/1000 cleanroom environment using state of the art microfabrication equipment. Your responsibilities include microfabrication on 6” and 8” Si wafers, following process run-cards, capturing data and images, and reporting progress and/or issues with engineering management. Though you will work closely with the engineering team lead to start, you are soon expected to work autonomously. Experience with various microfabrication processes is preferred, including (but not limited to) PVD, LPCVD, lithography, RIE, DRIE, and various metrologies.


Job Tasks:

  • Learn and demonstrate a working knowledge on the various pieces of microfabrication equipment.

  • Set daily goals for microfabrication tasks and communicate those to engineering management.

  • Follow process run-cards on a digital platform, record process updates and issues on those run-cards, and integrate images on company servers.

  • Communicate closely with the engineering team lead any questions, issues, or complications that arise during wafer fabrication.

  • Demonstrate comfort in a cleanroom environment and maintain the ability to work autonomously, aggressively, and smartly.


Basic Qualifications:

  • B.S. or M.S. and 5+ years of experience within a MEMS, CMOS, or other microfabrication cleanroom environment.

  • Experience working with silicon (Si) substrates (3” to 8” diameter okay).

  • Willingness to learn and become proficient in unfamiliar microfabrication techniques.

  • Maintain a positive, “can-do” attitude and professional work-ethic to meet your daily goals.

  • Have strong communication skills (both verbal and written) so as to discuss processing issues with on-site support staff or engineering management.


Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with MEMS microfabrication techniques, including photolithography, thin-film etching, and Si DRIE.

  • Understanding of LPCVD, PVD metal lift-off, and CMP processes.

  • Familiarity with wafer bonding.

  • Ability to maintain high-caliber cleanroom etiquette and protocol, maintaining strong standards for all the steps involved in a microfabrication process.
