  • Simulation of thermal, mechanical, electrical and, particularly, optical properties
  • Simulation, design, setup and verification of laser beam shaping and combining optics
  • Simulation and design of imaging and non-imaging micro optical systems
  • Supervision of functional model and prototype manufacturing
  • Identification of new technologies and partners for optical systems
  • Management of collaboration with partners and suppliers

Your qualifications

  • University degree in physics, engineering with emphasis on optics or similar subject
  • 5+ years of experience in either photonics industry or research labs
  • Confident usage of an optical design software (Zemax, Code V or other)
  • Experienced in working with CAD-, FEM- or other design tools
  • Skills in concept, layout and assembly of micro optical systems using MOEMS preferable
  • Professional experience in industrial development environment with relation to optoelectronics, optics or MEMS is of advantage
  • Confident written and verbal communication skills for presenting in German and English

We offer

  • A dynamic and young company with flat hierarchies
  • Exciting tasks and a lot of creative leeway with competitive compensation
  • Becoming part of an extremely motivated and experienced team
