Test Engineer

GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Burlington, VT, United States
Employer Description

GlobalFoundries (GF) is one of the world’s leading semiconductor foundries. We manufacture complex, feature-rich integrated circuits that enable billions of electronic devices that are pervasive throughout nearly every sector of the global economy. With our specialized manufacturing processes, vast library of intellectual property, and differentiated technologies, GF serves a broad range of customers that includes the global leaders in semiconductor design. Since GF’s founding in 2009, we have invested more than $23 billion in our company to build a global manufacturing footprint with multiple state-of-the-art facilities across three continents, offering customers the flexibility and security their supply chains require. We currently operate five manufacturing sites, called fabs, in: Dresden, Germany; Singapore; Malta and East Fishkill, New York; and Burlington, Vermont. These world class manufacturing sites across three continents provide the scale, technology differentiation and geographic diversification that we believe are critically important to our customers’ success. Our scaled footprint also gives us the flexibility and agility to meet the dynamic needs of our customers around the globe, help them mitigate geopolitical risk, and provide greater supply chain certainty. GF’s differentiated services and technology and feature-rich solutions enable our customers to develop innovative products for an increasingly wide variety of applications across broad markets. We unlock value for our customers by helping drive technology in multiple dimensions, making their products more intelligent and intuitive, more connected and secure, and more powerful and energy efficient. Semiconductor technology is central to our global economy and vital to the fabric of everyday life. GF's feature-rich chips are in the laptop computers, smartphones, smart devices and automobiles we use every day. They are in the high-speed wireless networks, data centers and multimedia tools that enable video conferencing in our homes, schools and businesses and help humanity stay connected. As technology continues to accelerate and yield incredible new innovations and advancements, semiconductors will remain at the heart of this progress. Semiconductor manufacturing is among the most complex and sophisticated manufacturing processes in the world. Requiring a strictly controlled environment called a cleanroom, the process includes a sequence of hundreds to thousands of processing steps in which electronic circuits are gradually built on a silicon surface. The resulting chips can be the size of a fingernail, or smaller, and feature billions of nanoscopic transistors. We focus on manufacturing feature-rich semiconductors that enable our customers to create devices that connect, secure and process data, and efficiently power the digital world around us. To solve our customers’ most complex challenges, we offer a broad range of sophisticated technology platforms that leverage our extensive patent portfolio and deep technical expertise in digital, analog, mixed-signal, RF and embedded memory. Our manufacturing expertise is complemented by a global network of R&D, design enablement, and customer support operations. GF’s mission is to innovate and partner with our clients to deliver technology solutions for humanity. As we manufacture semiconductors around the globe, we are deeply committed to ethical and responsible business practices. At GF, corporate responsibility is fundamental to our company and the value we provide to our customers.
