Job Description

The Process Engineering group at Skyworks in Woburn, Massachusetts is responsible for developing and supporting all wafer fabrication processes used to produce Skyworks’ diverse portfolio of products.  The primary device technologies include HBT, GaN, BiFET, pHEMT and BiHEMT at various performance nodes.  The group works closely with the Advanced Technology Development team to develop technologies and with the Manufacturing Operations team to deliver world-class quality products to market.



  • Support daily production to ensure on-time-delivery of top-quality product.  This includes disposition of held lots and prescribing appropriate rework/recovery processing as necessary.  The focus of this position is in the Thin Films area with occasional hold disposition support required in other areas such as PCM Test, Lithography, Etch & Cleans and Final Process.  
  • Provide support to rapidly contain yield/quality excursions and drive corrective actions.
  • On an as needed basis, perform experiments, data analysis and other tasks in support of Advanced Technology Developments and unit process continuous improvement projects.
  • Participate in fab-wide/section-specific continuous improvement efforts affecting key metrics. 
  • Engage in professional development opportunities to stay in tune with industry trends, extend the state of the art and enhance the group’s technical and professional depth and breadth.
  • Build teamwork and cohesiveness within the group, and champion collaboration between engineering groups to improve the wellbeing and performance of the overall organization.
  • Work with Operations synergistically, following a “work cell” model, to optimize the overall performance of the Thin Films area and enhance the skills/knowledge of Operations personnel.



  • At a minimum, a BS in engineering, physics, chemistry or related discipline.  The ideal candidate will have a degree in Materials Science, specifically Metallurgical Engineering.
  • At least 1 year of experience in micro-electronics process engineering with primary experience in thin film deposition processes (e.g. PECVD, e-beam evaporation and DC/RF sputtering).  Secondary knowledge/experience in thermal processes and/or ion implantation is desirable.
  • Basic data analysis skills using tools such as JMP, Excel or Exensio/Spotfire.
  • Basic knowledge and practical experience applying SPC, DOE, MSA and ANOVA.
  • Metrics driven, data directed, detail oriented and very strong in core engineering principles.
  • Excellent verbal and written “360 degree” communication skills.
  • Initiative to address and appropriately escalate problems to achieve rapid resolution.
  • Ability to work effectively with engineering peer groups and personnel across various shifts.
  • Ability and willingness to work in a cleanroom semiconductor processing environment.
  • Ability to work a 12-hour shift on a compressed work week schedule (i.e. 3 on, 4 off, 4 on, 3 off).
