Semiconductor Process Metrology Engineer – Ostendo Technologies, Inc. – Carlsbad, CA


Compensation: Competitive, with benefits



Ostendo Technologies is seeking an experienced

metrology engineer to contribute to the refinement of its Quantum Photonic

Imager (QPI®) microfabrication process.

Ostendo has demonstrated a fabrication process for leading-edge

emissive microdisplays based on wafer-level processing of semiconductor and

compound semiconductor materials. This

metrology engineer will perform material and device characterization, refine

inspection procedures, perform data analysis, and train process staff in

characterization tool use and data interpretation. S/he will further support the company’s

research and development efforts at its Nanotechnology Laboratory. This position includes routine process

characterization in a clean room processing environment, and requires strict

adherence to clean room safety and cleanliness protocols. This position requires demonstrated mastery

with commercially available metrology tools including optical microscopes,

scanning electron microscopes, thin film characterization tools, and atomic

force microscopes. The metrology engineer will work with Ostendo’s

semiconductor process engineers and scientists, develop work instructions,

and implement best practices to ensure process stability while supporting

continuous improvement efforts. The

successful candidate will be an essential team member for processing and

bringing novel semiconductor photonic technology designs from early R&D

stages to production and manufacturing in a total team effort.

The semiconductor manufacturing engineer duties

include, but are not limited to:

Familiarizing self with Ostendo’s QPI

R&D process flow and metrology tool set


Development of metrology process step



Calibration of metrology tools


Characterization of QPI materials and

analysis of metrology data


Training of new and current process

team members in metrology tool use and inspection step execution


Identification of superior metrology

tools and techniques to improve the quality of QPI devices


Coordination with third parties for

limited metrology efforts using tools not currently possessed by Ostendo


/ Experience:

Minimum five years’ experience with

wafer-scale metrology in a semiconductor processing environment


Strong understanding of scanning

electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and optical thin film

measurement techniques


Mastery of statistical analysis tools

including JMP or Minitab


Able to keep detail process records

and communicate results to team members and management


Ability to work independently as well

as in a team environment


Excellent verbal, written, and electronic

English communication skills
