Precision Opto-Mechanical Design Engineer


2 openings

Ideal Candidate, We have 2 different level Opto Mechanical Engineers. Mid and Sr. Level (5-7 (90K-124K) and 8-10 years ($115K - $150K) of experience).

This job will be part of the Electronic Industrial Solutions Group, which provides test and measurement solutions across a broad set of electronic industrial end markets, focusing on high-growth applications in the automotive and energy industries, and measurement solutions for consumer electronics, education and manufacturing, as well as semiconductor parametric testing, nano-positioning metrology and material science. The group provides electronic design and test software, instruments, and systems used in the simulation, design, validation, manufacturing, installation and optimization of electronic equipment.

This job is in NPMD (Nano-Precision Measurements Division) where we design, develop and manufacture the world’s most precise displacement measurement instruments used to control motion in semiconductor equipment making the world’s next generation ICs, microprocessors, and flash memory chips. Your work will advance the state of the art of precision measurement – imagine the excitement you’ll feel as you push the boundary into picometer territory.

Job Description, In this role as a Precision Opto-Mechanical Design Engineer you will be a key member of a multidisciplinary team of R&D engineers who develop precision opto-mechanical systems with interferometers and lasers.  You will bring the design from initial concept to final product realization, develop manufacturing tools and processes to support your product and carry it into production in our local world class factory


• Using your innate creativity and deep knowledge of precision engineering design principles to conceive and develop products that satisfy customer’s system requirements.

• Analyze and optimize your designs using FEA to ensure performance under all thermal and dynamic conditions in the application.  Prototype and validate your design with real hardware built by our internal model shop and local manufacturing line.

• Design and develop precision alignment tooling and manufacturing processes to ensure achieving performance at desired production yields.

• Coordinate your work and share technology with others in multidisciplinary team including MEs, physicists, EEs, optical engineers.

• Research new, emerging materials and technologies for use in current and future products.

Job Qualifications

Required Skills:

• BS in Mechanical Engineering or related technical field (Materials Science, etc) or equivalent combination of training and experience

• Minimum 7+ years of mechanical design experience for products and/or tool development

• Expertise in one or more of the following technical areas:  kinematic design, optics, adhesives, vacuum, and precision machining.

• Self-starter able to think and act independently to translate general objectives into tangible results, with a record of delivering successful designs on schedule to meet market requirements.

• Proficiency in using ME CAD tools for design and FEA for analysis.  (PTC Creo and ANSYS preferred)

• Excellent communication and ability to work well in team environment with people at all levels

Desired Skills:
