Data Scientist

Semiconductor devices provide the foundations on which progress in the technology sector are enabled. From Smartphones to Artificial Intelligence, 5G communications to autonomous vehicles, all are made possible through advances in semiconductor processes. Scaling these processes requires sub-nanometer measurement of increasingly complex 3D structures to enable more powerful devices. At Infinitesima we have pioneered a revolutionary atomic precision 3D metrology technology which has been qualified by leading companies in the semiconductor industry and we believe is essential for continued progress. To quote Lord Kelvin, 'If you can't measure it, you can't improve it!' . Come and join our dynamic team to enable the semiconductors for tomorrow's technological developments.

Do you have experience in extracting data through image analysis? If so, we currently have an exciting opportunity for a Data Scientist to join our R&D team.

The prime function of the role is to develop the algorithms to analyse data sets measured by our metrological product to answer our customers' key questions.
