More information about this job




Develop and improve MEMS wafer fab and assembly processes, focusing specifically on quality and yield improvement.  Manage production yield and quality improvement projects, including quality management system building; processing data gathering, monitoring, and analysis; model generation; experimentation; and propose resolution. Develop MEMS devices, and provide technical support and guidance for various internal process sustaining and development activities.


KNOWLEDGE: Having wide ranging experience, uses professional concepts and company objectives to resolve complex issues in creative and effective ways.


JOB COMPLEXITY: Works on complex issues where analysis of situations or data requires an in-depth evaluation of variable factors. Exercises judgment in selecting methods, techniques and evaluation criteria for obtaining results. Internal and external contacts often pertain to company plans and objectives.


SUPERVISION: Determines methods and procedures on new assignments and may coordinate activities of other personnel (Team Lead).   Be able to work self-directed.


EXPERIENCE:  Typically requires a minimum of 12 years of related experience with a Bachelor’s degree; or 8 years and a Master’s degree; or a PhD with 5 years’ experience; or equivalent experience.



  • Develop and maintain company’s Quality Management System (QMS) via documentation, manuals, procedures, lead the migration of ISO9001:2008 to ISO9001:2015

  • Perform as a lead Auditor for internal audits of the Quality Management Systems (QMS), generate audit reports, and facilitate external certification audits.

  • Provides systematic controls and processes to manage changes to a product’s BOM, specifications, and related processes and procedures.

  • Develops and implements the systems needed to evaluate and control product quality, compliance to standards, and execution to procedures in order to continually improve product performance.

  • Use the corporate Corrective and Preventive Action system to determine root cause and implement improvements

  • Use data driven and statistical analysis approach to analyze and improve product performance. Periodically report and present performance metrics to key stakeholders.

  • Organize and lead the team to address the root cause, take corrective actions, and propose preventive actions in an event of excursions or quality incident

  • Assist in investigating non-conformances, determines root cause and assign corrective actions and preventive actions with production or development team.

  • Work with product development teams to transfer design into manufacture with good quality assurance (DFSS: Design for Six Sigma).

  • Help IQC engineer to measure, analyze and countermeasure quality of suppliers, participate in supplier quality audits as needed.


  • None





To perform this job successfully, an individual must be able to perform each essential job function satisfactorily.  The requirements listed below are representative of the knowledge, skill, and/or ability required.  Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions.


  • Ph.D or Master Degree in Electrical, Mechanical, or Material Engineering. Extensive knowledge in design, fabrication and testing of MEMS devices or semiconductor products. Understand the basic micro-fabrication technologies such as photolithograph, etching, and thin film deposition. Understand basic analysis metrologies such as SEM, EDS, Raman, FTIR, Auger, or FIB.

  • Have extensive knowledge and experience on quality control and assurance under high volume production environment. Understand the quality assurance concepts, tools, and industry standards.Such as QC 7 tools, FMEA, Six Sigma, and other quality tools.

  • Have basic statistic knowledge and skills; understand how to use statistic tools and methods, such as Gage R&R, Cp, Cpk, SPC, and DOE, to guide and monitor the process.

  • Have solid understanding and experience to imply industry quality management system standards, such as ISO9001, ISO14001, TS16949, or other standards. Knows the concepts and how they are running, such as PDCA, control of change, control of nonconforming, and continuous improvement (CAPA).

  • Demonstrated project management skills, can set a target and lead a team to achieve the goals by assigning the task, tracking the progress, controlling the timeline, and encourage the team members. The projects include solving a quality problem, improving yield, or building up a quality sub-system.

  • Proficient in data analytics tools (JMP, Tableau, Minitab) and sound in statistical approaches and concepts for troubleshooting and problem solving
