Company Overview

Calling the adventurers ready to join a company that's pushing the limits of nanotechnology to keep the digital revolution rolling. At KLA, we're making technology advancements that are bigger—and tinier—than the world has ever seen.

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.  The future is calling. Will you answer?


With over 40 years of semiconductor process control experience, chipmakers around the globe rely on KLA to ensure that their fabs ramp next-generation devices to volume production quickly and cost-effectively. Enabling the movement towards advanced chip design, KLA's Global Products Group (GPG), which is responsible for creating all of KLA’s metrology and inspection products, is looking for the best and the brightest research scientist, software engineers, application development engineers, and senior product technology process engineers.

First to deliver the best imaging and classification data for every defect or point on any layer at any time.

EBeam’s mission encapsulates its role as the “eyes” of KLA’s product line, providing timely information on defects and critical locations on the wafer at the highest spatial resolution possible.  Customers use EBeam products alongside KLA patterned and bare wafer inspectors to quickly understand the nature of defects and other imperfections on product wafers and take action to correct the manufacturing process.


You will be working for a Software team of highly motivated Engineers who create Semiconductor Inspection/Review tools by solving high end Physics problems with their mastery of Software. If you come join our team, you will be enabling the Human Race to innovate the next generation of CPUs, GPUs and DL engines like Bionic Chips.

If you believe a code is not done when it works, it is done only when it is elegant, clean and has automated Tests to cover it, you are the Candidate we are looking for. Even though we prefer C#, being Polyglot helps.

If you are strong in Object Oriented Concepts, Data Structures and Algorithms with good understanding of using any modern Object Oriented Language and an eye for clean, readable and maintainable code you would fit right in our team. Having a passion to learn new technologies and the perseverance to take on challenging problems.

  • Native Applications wtih Web Frameworks
  • Machine Learning
  • Passion for Physics
  • Programming autnomous systems

Come join us and let's build the future together one electron at a time.


  • Masters or Ph.D student in Computer Science
  • Strong Data Strucutres, Algorithms knowledge, and Object Oriented Design experience would be an ideal combination.
  • Experience with Machine Learning and Big Data ecosystems like Hadoop would be an added advantage.

Minimum Qualifications

  • Bachelors in Computer Science
