Samsung Mobile Process Integration Engineering (PIE) Shift Engineer - Semiconductor in Texas

General Description

The Process Integration Engineering (PIE) Operations team is focused on supporting technology transfer, new product introductions, yield improvement, stop loss reduction, cycle time reductions, process improvements, and other KPI improvements. As a successful Shift PIE Ops member, you will provide integration support for 14nm high volume production and new device introduction. SAS is seeking Operations PIEs for all for C shift: Thur-Sat and every other Wed; 7am-7pm (12 hour shifts). This works out to a 36 hour week alternating with a 48 hour week. The PIE Ops team focuses on (a) performing routine process and product monitoring; (b) assisting with product/process setup for new products; and (c) preventing excursions across multiple 14nm products. This role will support the daily Product and Project PIE tasks, 24/7, by assisting in the implementation of process improvements, yield improvement project tracking/implementation, abnormal product evaluation and disposition, new device process matching, and communicating to manufacturing and/or leadership. Key requirements include general engineering and team leadership, project management, problem solving, coordination of tasks, and expert data collection and analysis. The exact job will be tailored to department needs as well as the successful candidate’s strengths. The successful candidate will be expected to:

  • Train and mentor shift technicians on duties and projects.

  • Use software to analyze data.

  • Consult with senior-level engineers based upon analysis results to make decisions about large scale changes.

  • Participate in Task Force Teams and Yield-related meetings, as needed.

  • Be responsible for monitoring critical or complex steps or layers in the wafer fabrication process and propose process improvements, as needed.

  • Deliver improved Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and appropriate change point management plans.

  • Communicate technical information to senior leadership through presentations and passdown.

Necessary Skills / Attributes

  • MUST hold a BS degree (or higher) in an Engineering or Physics discipline (EE, ChemE, MatSci, Micro-electronics, Semiconductor Physics), from an accredited university. A BS Math degree might also be accepted if candidate also has direct work experience.

  • MUST be able to work C shift: Thur-Sat and every other Wed; 7am-7pm (12 hour shifts). This works out to a 36 hour week alternating with a 48 hour week.

  • MUST have 1 – 5 years of RELATED experience.

  • Experience with high-volume LSI manufacturing and production is strongly preferred

  • Experience in semiconductor manufacturing Yield or Process Integration roles also preferred. While the roles within our department vary, the primary characteristic common throughout our team is a strong drive to deliver rapid, error-free results through appropriate planning, structured activity, and strong communication with other stakeholders and factory leadership. Members must have a willingness to adapt positively to rapid change and have a drive to rise up to adversity in high-pressure situations involving both new product introductions and mass production. Key skills include: - LSI integration and process understanding - Device Physics: general transistor structure and functional knowledge - Data Analysis: strong software analysis skills; coding skills a plus - Leadership Ability: project management and team leadership experience preferred - Strong communication, presentation, and conflict management skills – constant interfacing - Must be capable of shifting focus and changing priorities on a regular basis. Flexibility to these changes and ability to multi-task efficiently is highly valued. - Must demonstrate strong core values including: Integrity, Respect, Teamwork, Quality, and Continuous Learning
