Sr Engineer Product Quality & Reliability

Jul 8, 2021


To support releasing our CMOS RFIC and phased array antenna products for mass production, we are looking for a colleague to lead the product qualification. The position is open for our headquarters in Leuven, Belgium.


  • Own the product qualification. Establish requirements and define qualification plans. Roll-out the product qualification, provide specifications for hardware and software on set-ups used in lifetime stress tests, and define the tests for intermediate read-points.
  • Ensure compliance to industry-standards, and development of appropriate evaluation methods to be followed within design and engineering teams.
  • Interpret test results from the qualification read-points. Drive risk assessment and failure mode analysis following from the qualification, and provide solutions for reliability improvement.
  • Provide release documentation upon completion of product qualification. Setup and monitor product reliability programs during high-volume manufacturing and provide risk assessment for dispositioning of test rejects in production.
  • Coordinate your activities with other groups, such as chip and package design, manufacturing, process engineering, and interact with external partners.


These requirements are a must:

  • Education level: Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, or a related discipline.
  • 5+ years of experience in product qualification programs for semiconductor devices, preferably for high-power devices.
  • Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills: knowledge of semiconductor reliability fundamentals, failure mechanisms, and statistics that determine life-time performance. 8D problem solving is your natural way of working.
  • Continuous drive to seek perfection: eagerness to understand the root cause why some chips behave different than others, and provide solutions to resolve this.
  • Strong work ethic: understand your role is essential to company quality and long-term success. Keeping the team honest about the product reliability risks associated with release to mass-production.
  • Good interpersonal skills to lead the interaction with other teams.

What makes you stand out:

  • Experience with resolving thermal issues during normal operation and qualification.
  • Ability to generate board schematics to generate product-specific hardware as used in qualification set-ups.
  • Hands-on attitude when it comes to automation of test set-ups. Knowledgeable in Labview, Python and other scripting languages. Worked with databases.
  • Exposure to ATE development and product yield engineering.
  • Involvement in resolving customer complaints and RMAs.
