As a Process Engineer in the Waveguide Team, Facebook Reality Labs, you'll ensure the delivery of world class product and prototype quality for waveguide component hardware and product platforms for near-eye displays. In this role, you will be embedded in the Waveguide Packaging Development engineering team and be responsible for driving as well as implementing designs for a combination of tools and processes for wafer and chip level packaging solutions, possibly including wafer level lamination and packaging, localized coating applications, cleaning, singulation, and material handling solutions to create rapid prototyping and manufacturing equipment in support of waveguide component level assemblies throughout the new technology phase of the Hardware Development Life Cycle. The right candidate possesses a background in optical hardware related engineering disciplines, such as mechanical, chemical, or optical engineering, with a focus on prototyping, is excited by fast design execution and vendor engagements and is energized by a rapidly changing, flexible work environment and the opportunities it creates.
Process Engineer, Wafer-Level Optical Packaging Responsibilities
  • Identify, create, mature tool and process solutions for wafer-to-wafer, die-to-wafer, and die-to-die bonding challenges and other related wafer level packaging needs.
  • Serve as the tool owner and operational expert, develop Standard-Operation-Procedure documentation, safety protocols, and train operations team.
  • Contribute to engineering efforts to solve complex prototype production tooling problems by supporting the design and development of new manual and scalable automated production equipment and processes.
  • Implement statistical control methods & own yield improvement Pareto.
  • Develop design of experiments (DOE) to quantify process windows and characterize process parameter responses.
  • Work closely with research scientists on making engineering samples of next generation optical elements for near eye displays.
  • Work collaboratively with cross functional partners, including planning, production, metrology, reliability, front-end patterning, and mechanical equipment and engineering teams to establish prototype, process and tool requirements and specifications for internal and external partners.
  • Execute structured problem solving strategies to record, analyze and solve problems in the assembly processes, materials and tooling.
  • Communicate effectively with both management, peers, and external partners.
Minimum Qualifications
  • 3+ years of experience in process engineering and tool ownership in optical or similar semiconductor packaging.
  • BS or Master's Degree in Chemical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Optical Engineering, Systems Engineering or equivalent combination of education and experience.
  • Experience working with vendors or development partners on optical packaging projects or related projects.
  • Skill in statistical analysis of raw data using commercial packages like JMP, with experience to draw conclusions and make recommendations based on limited information.
  • Experience with tool requirements setting, installation, FATs, SATs.
Preferred Qualifications
  • 1+ years of direct experience in an industrial Research and Development environment developing scalable processes and tools with knowledge of optical fabrication processes including wafer-to-wafer bonding, wafer level packaging, cleans, material handling, process and tool definition and acquisition or related experience.
  • Familiarity with in-process and off-process metrology tools: 2D and 3D microscopes, Optical Measurement Machines, other gap measurement tools, mechanical testing equipment.
  • Experience with and around robotic material handling systems, including tool software programming and machine interface modification.
  • Experience with Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), including tool and process tracking and data entry.
  • Experience with contributing to strategic roadmapping for processes, tools, and capability growth and development.
  • Experience creating, tracking and organizing documentation, experimental results, standard operating procedures (SOPs), work-in-progress (WIP) logs.
