Located 30 minutes from downtown Portland, Intel Oregon is the largest and most complex site in the world, a global center of semiconductor research and manufacturing, and the largest private employer in the state.
Since first acquiring property in 1974, Intel's capital investments in Oregon total approximately $20 billion and our operations have grown to include seven main campuses spread across Hillsboro and Beaverton.
Intel Oregon offers a state-of-the-art wafer fabrication development and manufacturing campus dedicated to Intel chip designs and processes. It is also home to the world's first 300mm Research and Pathfinding Laboratory where employees develop silicon technologies that are two to three generations ahead of Intel's current manufacturing processes, and develop new ways to make digital technologies easier to use, faster and more fun.
Intel was named "Most Admired Technology Company" in Oregon in 2009 for the fifth year in a row, based on a survey of 2,500 CEO's and top-level managers throughout Oregon.
In addition to our many benefits and programs, employees get a bunch of other perks! Here's a peek at some of the cool stuff that makes Intel Hillsboro a great place to work.
Intel hires students and graduates from the Portland State University!
Intel Oregon provides support for education-related programs. In 2010 Intel invested $ 1.3 million in K-12 education in Oregon and $ 727,000 in higher education. This includes funds generated from the Intel® Involved Matching Grants Program. When Intel employees volunteer in classrooms, they generate a $10 Intel Foundation match for every hour of volunteerism.
Intel Oregon continues to expand its solar investment. The photovoltaic arrays offset power consumed at the facility, and as a side benefit, provides covered parking for cars and electric vehicle charging stations.
With the Intel Foundation match, the total 2010 contribution to local charities through Intel's Community Giving campaign in association with United Way of the Columbia-Willamette was $ 6.8 million.
Intel Oregon has been recognized by the United Way with several awards, such as the Largest Total Employee Giving Campaign Award, the Largest Corporate Gift and Campaign Chair Award and the Corporate Leadership Award.
