KLA is a global leader in diversified electronics for the
semiconductor manufacturing ecosystem. Virtually every electronic
device in the world is produced using our technologies. No laptop,
smartphone, wearable device, voice-controlled gadget, flexible
screen, VR device or smart car would have made it into your hands
without us. KLA invents systems and solutions for the manufacturing
of wafers and reticles, integrated circuits, packaging, printed
circuit boards and flat panel displays. The innovative ideas and
devices that are advancing humanity all begin with inspiration,
research and development. KLA focuses more than average on
innovation and in 2019 we invested 15% of sales back into R&D.
Our expert teams of physicists, engineers, data scientists and
problem-solvers work together with the world's leading technology
providers to accelerate the delivery of tomorrow's electronic
devices. Life here is exciting and our teams thrive on tackling
really hard problems. There is never a dull moment with us.
With over 40 years of semiconductor process control experience,
chipmakers around the globe rely on KLA to ensure that their fabs
ramp next-generation devices to volume production quickly and
cost-effectively. Enabling the movement towards advanced chip
design, KLA's Global Products Group (GPG), which is responsible for
creating all of KLA's metrology and inspection products, is looking
for the best and the brightest research scientist, software
engineers, application development engineers, and senior product
technology process engineers. The Film and Scatterometry Technology
(FaST) Division provides industry leading metrology solutions for
worldwide semiconductor IC manufacturers. The FaST Division
portfolio of metrology products includes hardware and software
solutions for optical film thickness, optical critical dimension
(CD), composition, and resistivity measurement systems. These
products are essential for the IC manufacturers as they provide
critical metrology capabilities for the development and
implementation of their advanced IC processes. The FaST division is
committed to support our customers to achieve performance
entitlement of our solution and we effectively partner with our
customers from their early research and development phase to the
high volume in-line manufacturing implementation specific for their
process needs. The division consists of a global team located in
US, Israel, China, and India.
