Fab Sort Manufacturing (FSM) is responsible for the production of all Intel silicon using some of the world’s most advanced manufacturing processes in fabs in Arizona, Ireland, Israel, Oregon and 2 new greenfield sites in Ohio and Germany. As part of Intel’s IDM2.0 strategy, FSM is rapidly expanding its operation to deliver output for both internal and foundry customers with state-of-the-art technologies arriving in high-volume manufacturing at a 2-year cadence going forward. Intel recently created HVM Global Yield organization in FSM to strengthen its yield operation and enable fast-paced yield ramp-up in early HVM phases for each technology in collaboration with Technology Development team and FSM fab managers.

This job requisition is to seek Data Science (DS) manager in FSM HVM Global Yield organization, reporting to Director of Yield Analysis and Data Science (YA and DS). The selected candidate will build and lead a team in HVM Global Yield organization and work with other leaders in the org, fab module/yield managers and TD leaders to support yield ramp-up and process optimization in early production stage, supporting internal and external customers.

Data Science Manager responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

  • Build and lead Data Science Team with data analysis and machine learning experts in FSM HVM Global Yield organization to execute HVM yield roadmap.
  • Identify valuable data sources and set automated data collection process to build and manage the dataset used for yield analysis.
  • Processing of structured and unstructured data, and building predictive models and machine learning algorithms.
  • Work with Yield Modeling team to develop new yield analysis methods and algorithms to deliver world class yield analytics and machine-learning solutions in high-volume manufacturing environment.
  • Collaborate with Technology Development, Program Managers, Process Integration, Device Integration and Defect teams to identify yield and performance detractors and enhancement opportunities and support fast paced yield ramp-up in high-volume manufacturing phase.
  • Support development of models to predict production line yield accurately in early stage of Si progression and deliver proposals to benefit production yield.
  • Develop model and algorithms to improve and automate process control minimizing yield loss associated with tight process window.
  • Support technical interactions with internal and external customers.

Candidate should possess the following behavioral skills:

  • Problem-solving and project/program management experience with strong self-initiative and self-learning capabilities.
  • Demonstrated interpersonal skills to perform at leadership role including influencing, engaging, and motivating.
  • Proven track record of working across organization through matrix structures in order to accomplish strategic objectives with conflicting priorities.
  • Must demonstrate strong communication skills.
