Opto-Mechanical Engineer

Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino), California, United States


Weekly Hours: 40
Role Number:200484527
We are looking for an Opto-Mechanical Engineer to join our team.

Key Qualifications

  • Experience with designing precision opto-mechanical systems with a strong understanding of optical metrology and optical testing methods
  • Strong mechanical design skills in modern CAD software (e.g. NX) to assess and design tester and proof-of-concept hardware and develop and review tightly toleranced fabrication drawings (e.g. GD&T)
  • Strong lab skills to layout, build, and run repeated experiments with precision optical instruments, ensuring consistent accuracy through multiple test cycles
  • Familiarity with imaging & illumination optical systems sizing and requirements
  • Seeks out & captures wide ranging, cross-functional requirements and maintains hardware platforms through tester & product iterations
  • Able to drive product and manufacturing equipment failure and root cause analysis and implement both short and long term mitigations
  • Flexible and collaborative, willing to work in fast paced product and technology development prototype assembly lines


The position will support technological research and product development for novel display technologies. We are seeking an opto-mechanical engineer to design, build, and operate demonstration and metrology platforms for miniature display applications and work with internal and external teams to transfer to high volume production. The candidate will also perform failure analysis of these systems and the products they measure in both remote and onsite capacities. We encourage self-directed work and require high self motivation. Additionally, a successful candidate needs to be flexible and receptive to ideas from a wide multi-functional team while pushing the technology envelope.

Education & Experience

Advanced degree with 4+ years of experience in mechanical engineering, optical engineering, physics, or related field.

Additional Requirements

  • Preferred Qualifications:
  • - Experience with lab control & acquisition tools (e.g. Python, LabVIEW, MATLAB)
  • - Experienced with finite element analysis in modern FEA packages (e.g. Ansys)
  • - Familiarity with optical modeling tools (e.g. Light Tools, Zemax)
  • - Experience with diffractive optics
