HPC Software Engineer (BBP)
Milpitas, California
DescriptionWith over 40 years of semiconductor process control experience, chipmakers around the globe rely on KLA to ensure that their fabs ramp next-generation devices to volume production quickly and cost-effectively. Enabling the movement towards advanced chip design, KLA's Global Products Group (GPG), which is responsible for creating all of KLA’s metrology and inspection products, is looking for the best and the brightest research scientist, software engineers, application development engineers, and senior product technology process engineers. The Broadband Plasma Division (BBP) provides market-leading patterned wafer optical inspection systems for leading-edge IC manufacturing. Logic, foundry, and memory customers depend on BBP products to detect yield-critical defects for process debug and excursion monitoring at advanced process nodes. BBP flagship products include the 29xx and 39xx series which leverage Broadband Plasma technology to capture a wide range of defects with ultimate sensitivity at the optical inspection speeds needed for inline defect monitoring.


In this role, you will be expected to gather requirements, design and develop software infrastructure features for the image computer sub-system of the wafer inspector software. The IMC SW engineer will have skills to acquire, transform and present data from various sources to run advanced image processing algorithms on a high-performance computer cluster.

Ideal candidates are passionate about software and computer architecture. They will have exceptional skills and hands on experience with development in Java and C++ in a Linux environment. A deep understanding of multi-threaded, multi process and distributed software systems working in Linux HPC clusters is needed. Although familiarity with Machine Learning and Deep Learning solutions would be a big plus, this is primarily a Software Engineering Infrastructure position.
RequirementsEssential Skills: Distributed & HPC Systems Object Oriented and Multi-threaded Design & Programing in Java or C++ Network programming Linux System Programming Data Structures and algorithms Scripting using python Desirable Skills: Cloud technologies for network, storage, containerization and compute clusters. Building and configuring Linux kernels, and designing and troubleshooting network infrastructure; Linux Device Driver Development Minimum Qualifications PhD Master's Level Degree with work experience of 2 years
