Who are we?

We research, develop, and manufacture the world’s most advanced inspection and measurement equipment for the semiconductor and nanoelectronics industries. We enable the digital age by pushing the boundaries of technology, creating tools capable of finding defects smaller than a wavelength of visible light. We create smarter processes so that technology leaders can manufacture high-performance chips—the kind in that phone in your pocket, the tablet on your desk and nearly every electronic device you own—faster and better. We’re passionate about creating solutions that drive progress and help people do what wouldn’t be possible without us.

We’re a global team of 6,000 people in 17 countries, united by a culture that rewards innovation and recognizes the power of collaboration to deliver breakthroughs. We’re a thriving company that earned $2.8 billion in our last fiscal year and we’re dedicated to keep our customers successful by consistently delivering industry-leading technologies.

Why join us?

KLA-Tencor is a smart place to work because we’re big enough to make an impact on the world and small enough to care about your career. We give you lots of opportunities for personal and professional development through leadership classes around the globe and advanced degree and certification programs from major universities. Our award-winning Corporate Learning Center is one of the best in the industry. And we’re not the only ones who think so—Training magazine inducted us into its Top 10 Hall of Fame after we made their list of top 10 training companies for four consecutive years.

Our CEO started as an engineer here. That’s pretty good proof that we’re a company of opportunity.

We offer a great working environment, with competitive salaries and healthcare benefits, long-term incentives, profit-sharing to eligible employees, 401(k) and stock purchase programs, health and wellness programs, tuition reimbursement, and a competitive time-off policy.

We also take our role in the communities where we do business very seriously. Through the KLA-Tencor Foundation, we work with local organizations to donate our time, talent, and resources through programs in education, health, and social services. We believe in giving back.

If you’re looking to solve problems and improve how the world works, you’ll have the opportunity to do it at KLA-Tencor.


Software Engineer ( C++ | C# | OOD | .NET )

KLA-Tencor's Process Control Information Division provides leading-edge data analysis and simulation software solutions to the semiconductor industry that enable the industry to continue pushing the device manufacturing capabilities for current and future design nodes.


In order for the semiconductor industry to scale to smaller device nodes, and reach new heights in device performance, today’s leading-edge chip designs are going vertical. And, as semiconductor manufacturers take these 3D device structures from the R&D lab into a volume production fab, they require the world’s most sophisticated patterning process control solutions.


With over 38 years of semiconductor process control experience, chipmakers around the globe rely on KLA-Tencor to ensure that their fabs ramp next-generation devices to volume production quickly and cost-effectively. Enabling the movement towards advanced chip design, KLA-Tencor’s Patterning Solutions Group (PSG) is looking for the best and the brightest research scientist, software engineers, application development engineers, and senior product technology process engineers to join our 5D team.


Our 5D patterning process control technologies control the three dimensions of the device structure, while optimizing the process control loops (time) and minimizing the expense (cost) to create the device; hence five dimensional patterning process control (5D).


The team’s mission is to collaborate with our customers to innovate hardware and software technologies that detect and control process variations—at their source—rather than compensate for them at later stages of the manufacturing process. These patterning process control solutions provide the most accurate process correctables available today; providing real-time feedback and feed-forward control to improve subsequent process steps.


Why join 5D? Think of this team as a “start-up” company where you are offered the ultimate challenge to solve the most complex technical problems that enable the digital age. Yet, this “start-up” is backed by the most sophisticated and successful process control company in the semiconductor industry.
