The principal responsibilities include ownership of the Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) deposition process and tools with the goal of meeting and/or exceeding operational metrics including but limited to yield, throughput, and cycle time metrics. The position will also require the development and implementation of process controls and improvement actions. Reports directly to the Senior Vice President, Operations.
Essential Job Functions
Identify which variables in the OLED deposition process (organic deposition, seal, thin films) affect the performance of the end product and determine what changes to make to the process to improve product performance while also maintaining or improving other in line metrics such as yield and cycle time.
Reports and follows up on out of control occurrences with the support of other process owners and the quality organization, and plans and coordinates the efforts to identify root causes and the deployment of corrective actions using techniques such as DMAIC or others as applicable.
Will lead process definition, process improvement, and yield improvement activities for the manufacturing process.
Works closely with the other process owners and the equipment-engineering group to coordinate and monitor the process compliances and address both process and equipment related issues as required.
Will be part of the manufacturing process engineering team and will participate in the in the transfer of new processes to the production line as well as the selection, installation, and qualification of new equipment.
The position is non-managerial, but may require the leading of small groups of engineers and/or manufacturing technicians.
Required to interact and work closely with other departments including engineering, manufacturing, equipment maintenance, quality, product development, R&D, and finance.
Minimum BS in engineering, physics, material science, or related engineering discipline.
4+ years semiconductor or and/or OLED manufacturing industry production experience desired.
This position requires proficiency with statistical engineering methods, statistical process control, problem solving, and a thorough understanding of manufacturing processes, equipment operation, and maintenance requirements.
Experience with thermal evaporation, sputter techniques, thin films deposition, and other semiconductor processing techniques is desired.
Required to work in clean room environment and follow and enforce clean room practices and procedures.
Shift flexibility may be required to support 24x7 production team along with other engineers.
