Optics Development Design Engineer


Looking for an Optics engineer to work on an Optical Design project. Applicants are required to have a good track record in the field of micro-optics, optical engineering and/or optical devices. The job involves advanced optical design from the nano to microscale and beyond, thus, require profound knowledge in the optics field.

Job Scope

  1. Ability to create a computer-generated model or test unit using Zemax, Lumerical or other software.
  2. Lead product development through release and initiate design technical solutions.  
  3. Design optical systems with specific characteristics to fit within specified physical limits of precision optical instruments, such as microscopy objective lens.
  4. Determines proper operation of an optical system and make adjustments to achieve perfect system.
  5. Design mounts for micro components to hold them in proper planes in relation to each other and the instrument that will be used.
  6. Design inspection instruments to test optical systems for defects, such as aberrations and deviations.
  7. Co-work with research scientist, industrial partners, electrical and mechanical engineering staff to develop the overall design of the optical system.
  8. Design precision optical systems for microscopy lens system.

Job Qualification

  • A Bachelor’s degree in Science and/or Engineering.
  • Experience in designing and modelling optics and photonics devices using Zemax or Lumerical.
  • Good knowledge of the optical system.
  • Ability to work well both individually and with teammates.
