Opto-Mechanical Packaging Engineer

At Lightelligence, we’re building computational machines that are solving problems in ways that have never been done before. we’re looking for an opto-mechanical packaging engineer to assist with fiber array coupling to photonic IC and supply chain management.

What you’ll do at Lightelligence: 

  • Design and build a silicon photonics packaging platform for optical coupling interfaces between optical fiber array and source of silicon waveguide structures

  • Develop and evaluate the coupling process for high-performance through material selections and structure/process optimization through collaboration with cross-functional development teams

  • Interact with suppliers regarding system specifications, quotes, purchase orders, and incoming parts/components

  • Evaluate design for reliability, manufacturing, and assembly

  • Support in the documentation process for product components, including models, productions drawings, inspection criteria, system specification, fixture design, etc.

Preferred Qualifications: 

  • BS or MS in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, optics, or related disciplines  

  • Minimum of 3 years of related experience in fiber optics packaging and assembly

  • Hands-on experience in construction and evaluation of optical coupling stations, including coupling performance, material selections, and process optimization 

  • Experience in design of opto-mechanical fixtures and products with sub-micron tolerances 

  • Lab experience with optical measurements and optical test equipment 

  • Experience using 2D/3D design software, such as AutoCad, Solidworks, Zemax, or FEA 

  • Self-motivated team player with good verbal and written communication skills including the ability to work effectively across multiple functional teams in different sites
