Photonic IC Designer

Mission :

You will be responsible for designing, characterizing and integrating a variety of passive and active integrated photonics devices. Responsibilities include taking device designs all the way from simulation to productisation. This includes electromagnetic simulation, design, layout, verification, design of experiment, test and analysis of measurements.

You will work as a part of a small and international team in a dynamic startup environment, driving high-performance photonic designs.

Main Tasks :

  • Designing Photonic Integrated Circuit comprising lasers, modulators, mux/dmux, receivers, and test structures to measure and optimize performance (propagation loss, bend loss, tapered waveguide transitions, polarization splitter/rotators, etc.)

  • Testing and analyzing measurement results to validate simulation models

  • Translating practical foundry limitations to robust photonic designs

  • Collaborating closely with manufacturing team to incorporate design for test (DFT) and design for manufacturability (DFM) at early stages in the design cycle

  • Use statistical techniques to develop models and understand the impact of foundry process corners on photonic devices

Work Experience & Technical Skills :

  • 2+ years of working/research experience

  • Experienced with electromagnetic simulations in standard software suites (FDTD, modesolvers, FMM, etc.) and in layout (phoenix, matlab with klayout, or other tools)

  • Proficient with standard scientific computing tools and data analysis (Python, Matlab)

  • Familiar with Linux/Unix

Education :

  • Ph.D. in electrical engineering, physics, or related field with a focus on photonic device design


Others :

  • Strong interpersonal skills and ability to work effectively in a team environment, accomplishing tasks with limited resources at a rapid space

  • Problem solving attitude

  • Excited about the prospect of contributing to the development of a new technology

  • Fluent in English ​​​
