Back End of Line Process Engineer — Round Rock

Purpose:

The Toppan Photomasks (Round Rock, TX) engineering group is hiring in the back end of line (BEOL).  Defect free photomasks are an industry requirement.  To obtain this top quality, the back end of line manufacturing uses multiple steps which include advanced photomask cleaning, photomask automated inspection, photomask nano repair, photomask repair validation (AIMS verification platform) and applying a protective membrane above the customer masking design. In order to be successful, the photomask processes need to be optimized in order to meet changing customer quality requirements. Photomasks are unique and so are our customers. The position offered is one created with the intention of bridging a gap to link Inspection and Repair/AIMS more closely.

In these difficult scenarios, the position will require optimizing the right inspection for the product to meet specifications.  In case nano repairs are needed, the position will require optimizing the repair strategy and repair processes to ensure repairs are successful.  Inspection and Repair, while two different areas, are interlinked and require a connection between areas.  

The position is challenging as it will require the candidate generate and maintain standard operating procedures as well as training manufacturing technicians to ensure they are followed.
