Job Details

Infinitesima

Semiconductor devices provide the foundations on which progress in the technology sector are enabled. From Smartphones to Artificial Intelligence, 5G communications to autonomous vehicles, all are made possible through advances in semiconductor processes. Scaling these processes requires sub-nanometer measurement of increasingly complex 3D structures to enable more powerful devices. At Infinitesima we have pioneered a revolutionary atomic precision 3D metrology technology which has been qualified by leading companies in the semiconductor industry and we believe is essential for continued progress. To quote Lord Kelvin, ‘If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it!’. Come and join our dynamic team to enable the semiconductors for tomorrow’s technological developments. Do you have experience in the application of scanning probe microscopy? Do you have a passion for understanding customer problems and driving solutions? We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Applications Engineer to join our team. This role will require a dynamic individual, who is excellent at problem solving and working autonomously. A significant part of this role will be in the support of customers globally. This is a fantastic opportunity to work on innovative technology at the leading edge of semiconductor applications.
