Senior Optical Engineer

Company Name:
Salary period: Annual
SalaryAdditional: negotiable
BS/MS in Optical Engineering or equivalent
5 or more years of industry experience on optical designs
Working application knowledge of diffraction gratings for spectroscopic applications
Proficient in Zemax (or similar CAD software) modelling
Successful rapid prototype and released product design experience
Additional Desired Skills
Analysis of optical systems (tolerance, performance)
Knowledge of pulsed and CW Laser systems
Excellent analytical skills to support your designs with calculations and analysis
Willingness and ability to perform hands-on technical work involving metrology, optical alignment, testing and data collection is required
Excellent verbal and written English skills to be an effective interface to the customers and vendors are required
Ability to work both independently and in a group setting
Proactive and results-oriented, with ability to work in fast-paced environment.
The successful candidate will work closely with an existing team of mechanical, electrical and software engineers to develop integrated optical systems from benchtop brass-boards, to rapid-development low-volume customer prototypes, to high-volume robust field solutions, with typical development timelines ranging from 3 to 9 months. The optical engineer will support the team by helping to select, install, align and test appropriate components. These include diffraction gratings (planar or concave, reflective or transmission), focal lenses, dichroic and collimating mirrors, notch/high-pass/low-pass filters, optimized focal ratios, fibers, slits, and light sources (including pulsed/CW lamps, LEDs and solid/gaseous lasers), based on custom project requirements such as SNR, optical resolution and spectral range. Typical applications may include transmission, reflectance, absorbance, irradiance and Raman (including SERS, SERDS and SORS) from proximal to stand-off ranges.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
