Job description

In your new job you will:
  • be the technical contact person for the process block chip frontside metallization in Villach
  • know the existing chip metallization methods at Infineon, and thus you can drive actively the implementation of process improvements and contribute to development projects
  • have an overview about the different „frontend“ upstream semiconductor processing steps and their interaction with chip metallization (e.g., semiconductor material deposition and etching processes of oxides, nitrides, poly-imides, Al, Cu)
  • be able to understand the technical interactions with the “pre-assembly” and „backend“ downstream processes (e.g., wafer thinning, chip backside metallization, chip separation, wire bonding)
  • drive complexity management within the chip frontside metallization process block in order to prevent complexity enhancement by too many process variants
  • contribute to the development of new methods for the characterization of metals and interfaces
  • work together with many different Infineon groups and sites and you will build up your global network in production, development, quality and logistics.


You are an experienced team player and you are able to win others for your structured approach of getting things done. You have a talent to communicate effectively and clearly and know how to do high quality decision making.
