  • Develop new Design For Test (DFT) and Design For Manufacturability (DFM) capabilities
  • Work with internal and external suppliers to develop and qualify new test solutions
  • Collaborate with other engineering departments to improve overall product yield and performance. 


Minimum Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or a related discipline.
  • Electronics/Electrical circuit knowledge:
    • As applied in memory devices and to test equipment
    • Knowledge of digital systems and logic gates
    • Knowledge of transistor operation
  • Basic understanding of semiconductor device physics
  • Intermediate to advanced programming and program-debug skills, with C++ being the ideal area of expertise
  • The ability to work independently
