Optical Design & Development Engineer

Vacancy posted: Thursday, 12 January 2017

Location: Livingston

Closing date: 19 January 2017
Job ref. no.: 37500

Eden Scott's client based in Livingston is an early stage technology business operating the optical communications field. They develop a range of advanced 3D wave guides that significantly increase the level of data transfer across networks.

Due to recent investment they are in the process of growing their team and are looking to add several new roles to the business.

There is now a requirement for an experienced and creative Optical Design and Development Engineer to join the organisation on a permanent basis.

The successful candidate will work on all product stages, from R&D to design manufacture and test. The position will report into the Technical Director and will involve working closely with the technology team to design and fabricate 3D waveguide based components.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Performing full lifecycle product development (design, develop, test prototypes, manufacture and qualification)
  • Designing systems and components that meet the needs and requirements of customers
  • Producing outline designs and new concepts
  • Testing and evaluating theoretical designs
  • Developing and evolving in house design software using Visual Basic
  • Altering and modifying designs to meet requirements and eliminate malfunctions

The candidate will ideally be qualified in a relevant discipline (e.g. PhD / Eng.D in Physics or Engineering) with a solid technical background in photonics, particularly optical waveguides. Furthermore, experience in the design, characterisation and test of waveguides for optical interconnect applications is highly advantageous as is experience of working on design simulation of waveguides. Advanced mathematical computing and analysis tools knowledge is essential.
