As the global leader in the semiconductor industry, Intel possesses many industry-leading SSD technologies including the most capable Quadruple Level Cell (QLC) NAND Flash products. As an OPC engineer, you will be part of a world-class team that will transition to lead the SSD business at SK hynix.

The Intel NAND-DTM Process Technology Development group is responsible for developing state of the art 3D-NAND technology. As a NAND collateral development engineer, you will be responsibilities will be in the areas of initial tape-out reviews, verification of design rules, generation of rules, or model-based mask flows and mask-ready data, and verification of this data to DRs or fab needs. The final goal is alignment between Litho process, mask and OPC to deliver the right patterns on the wafer. The specific functions of an OPC engineer are to define OPC solutions for new layers or challenging design rules on new nodes including illumination, SMO, resist models, etch models, target layer definition, OPC recipes, OPC checking and fab verification. The ideal candidate will have: Demonstrated willing to produce effective, efficient and flexible code to spec along with user interfaces and documentation.

This position is in the NAND-DTM Group which is aligned to phase 2 of the sale of the NAND business to Solidigm, a wholly owned subsidiary of SK hynix.
