The responsibilities will include activities such as Validation infrastructure development, creation and enablement of Automation capabilities, test development, execution, and debug. You will have the opportunity to work in our matrixed and global environment with other teams across Intel, engaging with both your home team members and engineering peers across the United States and the world.

Responsibilities may include, but are not limited to: Applicants will creatively apply the technical know-how (engineering fundamentals, scientific knowledge, systems thinking, analytical thinking, prototyping, and testing knowledge) against design constraints and boundary conditions (industrial design, cost, performance criteria and other design constraints) to research, develop and productive mass producible solutions.
