Systems Engineering Manager


The Manager of Systems Engineering in Advanced Technology will drive innovation for wafer and panel ECD and PVD processing hardware to ensure that ASM-NEXX equipment remains ahead of customer requirements.  The incumbent will lead a team of mechanical and electrical engineers to develop new capital equipment platforms.

This includes sub-system and critical part conceptualization, fabrication and testing, BOM structuring and working with manufacturing engineering to ensure ASM-NEXX stays at the leading edge of capital equipment in the Advanced Packaging market.  Expertise in multiple domains including mechanical, electrical and manufacturing engineering is required.

Key Responsibilities and Duties / Essential Functions:

  • Lead a team of mechanical and electrical engineers, applying their collective skills to complex programmatic challenges and overseeing development of their engineering talent.
  • Design and invent process module and automation solutions for next generation ECD and PVD equipment based on requirements from process engineers and customers.
  • Oversee & perform CAD design of hardware, using special fabrication methods and detailed tolerances as required.
  • Ensure best practices for applying GD&T and tolerance analysis to parts and assemblies.
  • Lead a transition to using Model-based Definition (MBD) for Product Data Management.
  • Apply a systems approach to tool design using process and instrumentation diagram (P&ID) drawings for electrical, pneumatic and control logic.
  • Ensure best practices for electrical schematics and wiring diagrams.
  • Coordinate with the manufacturing team to include DFMA analysis for new designs and to ensure prototypes move smoothly into manufacturing.
  • Create test protocols to verify system performance and reliability and coordinate building and operating of test-stands to validate long-term performance.
  • Solve process equipment issues using best-in-class tools such as troubleshooting matrices, fishbone diagrams, FMEA and other structured problem solving methods.
  • Estimate program costs and track projects to meet time-to-market and budgetary goals.

Education and Experience:

  • PhD or MS in mechanical, electrical or materials engineering strongly desired; BS in mechanical, electrical or materials engineering required
  • 5 or more years’ experience managing mechanical and electrical engineers
  • 15 or more years’ experience engineering large capital equipment, preferably in the semiconductor manufacturing industry.
