Intel Vice President & General Manager Silicon Process Pathfinding Group in Hillsboro, Oregon

Job Description

About the Business Group:

The General Manager of Silicon Process Pathfinding Group is an executive leadership role and the selected candidate will report directly to the GM of Technology Development.

Pathfinding often involves finding and building a connection between a good idea and a manufacturable product while meeting real world and business constraints. As with all engineering endeavors, no two Pathfinding projects are exactly the same. Each product generation presents new size, complexity, cost, power, performance, enabling, and other challenges. Starting with good ideas proven by thorough research (performed entirely within Intel or in collaboration with 3rd-parties) and ending when implementation options have been evaluated and selected, Pathfinding can involve a wide range of disciplines over an extended period of time and may depend on many factors. TD employs formal Pathfinding to develop new product manufacturing processes.

Silicon Process Pathfinding will be a heavily matrixed organization with a relatively small core team that will be supported by employees from both Logic Technology Development (LTD) and Components Research (CR). The product that Pathfinding delivers in conjunction with LTD and CR is the core definition of the new technology that LTD relies on for the development of each node. Included are definition to the modules innovations, tools, materials, innovation and evolution in transistor architecture, innovation in interconnect and more! New Si Process technologies must first and foremost enable Intel's silicon and meet product performance goals while being affordable. Si Process Pathfinding also works with Components Research to bring the best of innovation from research and set it up to be ready for inclusion in future process node development.

In this role, the selected candidate will lead the Si Process Pathfinding organization with a goal to deliver exquisitely across all the key technologies with safety, quality, performance, predictability, and cost.


Process Pathfinding will comprise of a small core team augmented with CR and LTD resources for each technology node. The employees will be mostly based in Hillsboro, Oregon. The Pathfinding GM is responsible for all areas of managing the organization including but not limited to:
