Job title: Packaging Development Engineer
Location: Southampton, U.K.
The Role: Working as part of
the Packaging Development team the role involves designing and developing
processes for packaging Mesophotonics active and passive planar
photonic crystal based components in support of Mesos product development
This position involves the ability to operate within a matrix structure
and the ability to interact and communicate effectively with other
groups including: sales, engineering and finance. This person must
have the ability to work directly and effectively with technical
staff and management.
An ideal candidate will be self-motivated with
excellent communication, time management and problem solving skills
and must be team player with excellent interpersonal and communications
skills used to working to tight timelines and budgets. This is a
senior position reporting to the Director of Engineering.
The ideal candidate will have direct experience
of setting up prototype lines and taking optoelectronic components
from demonstration through to production. This is initially a hands
on role and will involve setting up processes, purchasing equipment
and hiring and training staff.
Minimum requirements: A degree
in engineering or physics, strong engineering skills in optoelectronics,
experience of process development and/or device design of planar
optics and/or optoelectronic device development is key. Experience
of working in a clean room environment is important for this role.
Experience of effectively dealing with outside suppliers is desirable.
Mesophotonics is commercialising breakthrough photonic crystal technology
that allows light to be bent, routed and processed at sub-millimetre
scale. This will enable multiple optical functions and complex systems
to be implemented at high density on a single silicon chip, leading
the way to low cost, high volume production of integrated optical
devices. Additional optical devices will also be possible at efficiencies
and sizes not previously achievable as photonic band gaps are used
to modify fundamentally how light is generated inside photonic crystals.
The company was founded in 2001 by Prof. Greg Parker and a team
of 7 founders from 3 departments at the University of Southampton
with expertise in modelling fabrication design and characterisation.
Venture capital funding is provided by Quester Capital Management
(London), BTG (London), Auriga Partners (Paris) and NIF (Tokyo).
