A day for a Process Engineer at Intel can range from spending all day in what we call our 'bunny suits' or space suits as most people would recognise them as or a day of juggling meetings with working on long term projects that have a quality improvement for your product or have a cost saving for the factory. The key thing is to be adaptable, be organised and be able to communicate your plans clearly and concisely. You will be your own boss in many instances as an engineer and it is up to you to get the job done and do it well, while at the same time meeting goals and challenges that are set for the factory.

The great thing about a process engineer at Intel is that much or your work can be done remotely, which means you don't have to sit at your desk all day allowing you to get in to the machines and get stuck in. One should also be aware that you will be continuously learning in this sort of environment. Because our technology is so up to date we are always making changes to make this possible. Our products will range from mobile phone chips to top of the range computer chips so we need to be able to make changes to meet the demands of what the market is looking for.

Lighthouse Studios is bringing 140 new animation jobs to Kilkenny

Lighthouse Studios, a new joint venture between Cartoon Saloon and Mercury Filmworks is to create one hundred and forty jobs between now and 2020.

The joint venture will operate independently from both Cartoon Saloon and Canadian company, Mercury Filmworks, with a management team reporting to a board of directors, made up of executives from both companies.

The new venture will focus on 2D animation. Based in Kilkenny, the  additional jobs will come on stream over the next three years, with roles for:

  • animators,
  • compositors,
  • designers,
  • effects artists,
  • IT administrators,
  • technical directors,
  • 3D modelers,
  • lighting artists,
  • riggers and
  • texture artists.

Commending the launch, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O'Conner TD said it is proof that Ireland has the creative talent to attract companies like the Canadian Mercury Filmworks to Ireland.

Paul Young, CEO, Cartoon Saloon: “All of us at Cartoon Saloon are delighted to be in partnership with Mercury, as we have long admired their work. And now, together, we plan to make Lighthouse Studios and Kilkenny a centre of excellence for animation.

“Ireland enjoys a number of advantages when it comes to animation. The industry is supported by a growing number of educational programs and draws talent from all over Europe due to the quality of projects being produced here. The Irish talent pool has been spilling over into other parts of Europe and North America for years and we look forward to welcoming a lot of that talent home.”

Clint Eland, Mercury Filmworks CEO: “Lighthouse Studios is neither wholly Mercury Filmworks nor Cartoon Saloon, but rather the best parts of each, transplanted in the rich Irish soil and nurtured by its own talented team of artists into a studio with its own unique and distinct creative perspective.”

The venture is supported by IDA Ireland and the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation.
