The Senior Product Engineer will work with junior and other senior engineering on qualifying new products and maintaining existing chip lines. Employee is fully responsible for developing test strategies and characterization plans to fully test new products to all datasheet parameters. They will implement testing, record data, analyze results, and document conclusions to determine if chip designs and parts can be released to manufacturing status. This includes coordinating ATE and bench characterization, ESD/LU, and HTOL exercises.  

As the device enters production, the individual works closely with production facilities to transfer the product and maintain yield at acceptable levels, performing debug if there are issues. The Senior Product Engineer is expected to work across multiple organizations and disciplines, interacting heavily with design, marketing, test, quality, applications, and manufacturing groups. They work with the product schedule to ensure that all tasks are completed to bring parts into production by agreed-upon dates. Opportunities also exist in determining DFT strategies and algorithms.
