Svagos Technik (The Company, Svagos) is a technology venture based in Santa Clara, California, and registered in Delaware, USA. It is backed by a well-known investor in the global renewable energy sector. Svagos Technik is developing at very low cost of production for various electronic applications using its proprietary Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) technology.
The technology platform offers cross-functional opportunities in semiconductor wafer processing and flexibility to develop various products, such as epitaxial SiC substrates. The Company has launched its strategically important program to develop a proprietary reactor and a proprietary process for SiC epitaxy. Svagos intends to expand its SiC development operations into High Volume Manufacturing (HVM) and to enter the market via IPO in the long term. The Company is inviting applications for the position of SiC Epitaxy VP of Technology/Research Fellow to strengthen its organization.
The SiC Epitaxy VP of Technology will be responsible for the execution of the Company’s short and long term epitaxial SiC research and development, including the development in a matrix structure. He/She will technically support the mission of the CEO and the Company. The job involves providing clear guidance to the Equipment Design, Simulations, CVD, and Materials groups in the development of various novel SiC epitaxial reactors and processes leveraging internal proprietary unit operations, external supply chain and outsourced activities.
The VP of Technology is expected to enable turnkey solutions on various new technology platforms, from concept to commercialization. Specific experience in SiC materials is required and expertise in silicon is preferred. The VP of Technology must develop collaborations with research institutes, laboratories, universities, and other relevant institutes involved in SiC research. He/She will be the technology face of the company in matters of SiC Research and Development.
SiC Epitaxy VP of Technology will be responsible for generating the Company’s SiC related IP. He/She will manage company’s IP with the help of the IP firm hired by the Company. Keeping a track of competitors’ IP development and devising the plan for Svagos to differentiate itself is a must.
