Job Description:

Job DescriptionThe Senior Optical Engineer will work within an optical modeling and rapid prototyping team to create optimal diffractive-optical-element designs for prototyping and production. This position will be responsible for working with technical team members in the research and development of optical architectures for augmented-reality and virtual-reality markets and other optical systems. This individual will provide on-demand, iterative support for in-house and customer-driven component prototyping efforts and will work with other technicians and engineers to integrate relevant theory, compile requirements, coordinate design reviews, transfer data to manufacturing, and validate results by specifying testing parameters and methodologies as required. The ideal candidate will have significant experience in relevant diffractive optics and model-based design software and simulation tools and will have the ability to modify and create new tools and models relevant to the requirements established by the team. This individual should also have (1) a deep level of understanding in polarization (e.g., Stokes parameters, Jones calculus, etc.) and (2) experience in coding using modern object-oriented languages with the ability to work with commercial optical raytracing software in order to program customized dynamic linked libraries (DLLs).
