n&k Technology is seeking a very dedicated optical engineering consultant who will be called upon, if needed, to participate in the company’s most challenging R&D projects related to optical design, analysis, and prototyping.
To lead a team of young engineers through challenging optical-design projects and to provide clear guidance
To perform in-depth optical simulation and analysis and to provide recommendations for system improvement
To build optical mockups on a bench for proof of concept
To perform simple to sophisticated optical alignment
Be able to source out reliable and good-quality vendors for optical components
Close cooperation with mechanical and electrical engineers
Performing and documenting engineering tests
Strong knowledge and interest in optics is a must. Prior job experience related to optical science is required. Some knowledge in mechanics and electronics is preferred. Applicants must be familiar with spectrophotometry, laser spectroscopy, interferometry, fiber-coupling, terahertz systems, etc. Applicants must also be proficient in the most-common optical design and ray-tracing software such as Zemax and FRED. The successful candidate must be able to think outside the box and be self-motivated and self-confident in leading the team to successful completion of each project.
Since working onsite is necessary at times, local candidates are preferred. Assigned projects can last from a few weeks to several years! Therefore, n&k Technology wants to develop a long-term relationship with the successful candidate and expects him or her to become the company’s great asset.
Compensation is commensurate with experience. Please send resume, cover letter, and portfolio of past projects to [email protected].
