We have significantly invested in improving the production capacity in recent years and are looking for employees for various tasks.
Versatile work in a great team
Work tasks where diverse skills can be utilized and great atmosphere ensure that our personnel is happy working with us for a long time. Working days include both process control and manual work. Our employees work in teams, and many say that the friendly and supportive working community is one of the best parts of the job.
Production work requires precision, caution and an active approach
The manufacturing process of silicon wafers consists of several different operations in our crystal growing facilities, wafering facilities, and cleanrooms. The tasks require precision, process management, the ability to use different types of machines and measuring devices, and a diligent approach to work.
High-purity, semiconductor-grade silicon is melted in a crystal growing furnace and grown into a single crystal. The crystal is then cut into smaller sections for further processing. The work involves controlling and monitoring the furnace processes as well as assisting with the different stages of these processes. These tasks require concentration, precision and initiative. IT skills are needed for operating the furnaces and monitoring the processes, as well as for making measurements and adjustments.
Silicon ingots are taken into wafering facilities where they are sliced into wafers. Other tasks include various measurements and adjustments as well as taking care of operator-based equipment maintenance. Keeping the saws in good working order requires initiative and problem-solving skills, as well as the willingness to take on the tools. IT skills are needed for using software applications, for example.
There are a number of stages in wafer processing that take place in cleanrooms of different classes. Silicon wafer batches are processed further, washed and inspected using a variety of automatic or semi-automatic equipment. The tasks involved in the different processing stages require precision and the ability to use different types of machines and measuring devices. Basic IT skills are needed for quality control tasks and for operating the equipment. Knowledge in electrical engineering is an advantage in several areas.
Work in 12-hour shifts
Most production work is in 12-hour shifts. The cycle involves two morning shifts (7 am–7 pm), one day off, two night shifts (7 pm–7 am), five days off. Long periods of days off between work provide an excellent opportunity to enjoy free time in new ways. Most of our work tasks are not physically exhausting.
Production work is done in small teams of 4-6 people on average, where a close team and a good team spirit are formed. Production employees are required to have a good command of Finnish, and a good knowledge of English is considered an advantage.
