A Day in the Life


The Principal Spray Coating Process Engineer will be responsible for developing and transferring highly stable, cost-effective and scalable wafer-based processes into manufacturing. They will develop and support processes including patterned polymer/organic layer deposition and output monitoring, perform necessary experiments to establish robust processes and gain a thorough understanding of capabilities and interactions with upstream and downstream processes. The engineer will define equipment needs, including tooling and operator interactions, establish design rules, metrologies and process controls and establish a high-volume production strategy. They will provide inputs to design teams and advance the state of the art in wafer processing.


Responsibilities may include the following and other duties may be assigned.


Leads the innovation, development and/or optimization of new manufacturing concepts, processes and procedures for transfer to manufacturing operations.


This can include scouting and feasibility work, material selection, process and equipment selection, tooling / fixture and equipment installation and assessment of inputs, outputs and alignment to requirements.


Develops manufacturing processes that are applicable to statistical process control and may develop those techniques including the measurement systems.


Performs equipment qualifications (IQ), process validations (Process characterization, OQ and PQ), and gage RR studies (TMV)


Applies statistical methods and science-based decisions to design experiments and implement improvements


Perform necessary experiments to establish robust processes. Monitor, root cause and resolve process yield issues.
