Why join the Etch Product Development Group at Lam Research?
Join a collaborative, focused team that has fun and enjoys working together. Your manager will not micromanage your work as long you have happy hiring managers and you are meeting your commitments. We understand that people have lives outside of work so we offer a certain level of flexibility.
Essential Functions and Duties
As a Product Engineer, you provide product design guidance through modeling and simulation for processing plasmas and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) with existing/new modeling platforms in the Etch Product Development group. Support and guide modeling activities/capabilities for capacitive, inductive, remote plasma, RF coupling, fluid flow modeling, thermal phenomena, and vacuum chamber design aspects in synergy with experiments and diagnostics. Manage and provide guidance for product design or optimization and establish links between product hardware/process engineering aspects. Contribute to engineering design, process, HW testing to solve product issues and interface in complex cross-functional teams. Develop and sustain process improvements to reduce production costs and increase yields.

About Lam Research
At Lam Research, we create equipment that allows chipmakers to build device features more than 1,000 times smaller than a grain of sand. This tiny scale has a huge impact. Virtually every leading-edge chip inside the electronic products you use every day (TVs, smartphones, laptops, cars—even medical devices) has been made using our equipment. As one of the world’s most trusted suppliers in the semiconductor equipment industry, we’re transforming technology. Our equipment places atoms so precisely that nearly every chip today is made using our innovations. This success is enabled by our world-class employees, who are the reason why nearly every chip today is built with Lam technology. At Lam, we know that our dynamic, global team of exceptional employees is essential to the company’s continued growth, and we are committed to providing you with the resources and career path opportunities you seek. But our real strength is our team. At Lam, we are all Atom Engineers. Whether you’re in operations, supply chain management, or customer support; whether you’re an engineer, a technician, or a specialist; whether you’re a senior leader or recent grad, you’re helping our customers manipulate the tiny building blocks of atoms … and move the world.
