POSITION: Sr. Level Software Engineer
LOCATION: Milpitas, CA
DURATION: Full time

The Candela ANPI team of KLA-Tencor has a charter to find new customers and new markets opportunities for KT. We are a small and dynamically evolving team that started from within the Candela division in 2014. Our goal is to identify and help KT grow outside its core semi market.

To validate a business idea we follow the Lean startup model - a Business Model Canvas is drafted, and updated as we learn more. After the initial screening we need a team that is able to rapidly develop shippable "product probes" to help validate customer use case and economic value. These projects can vary in scale from hand held device to larger systems with multiple imaging sensors and big data path with complex algorithms. Some examples if these projects are: With a start-up partner, a surface metrology solution was developed, leveraging offshore development team, for a large CE device manufacturer. Another project we are conducting a technical feasibility study for ultrafast in-situ monitoring. We are developing a core cross functional project team to collaborate on these growth opportunities.

We also routinely leverage KT talent across the company, in a "pick-up game" for who has a good match in skills, passion and availability to come help our core team execute stronger and quicker.

He/she will be part of a software team in KLA-Tencor's Candela Group with responsibility for the design, developing and unit testing of software in the area of machine control, business logic, algorithms, and GUI for ANPI.

He/She should be an effective team player and be able to work independently on problems.

The successful candidate will work with hardware, applications and marketing groups to understand system/marketing requirements and map them to software design. The candidate will be able to work on variety of new projects with different focus and pick up new software and technology quickly and efficiently.
