The Role: Working as part of the engineering
team the role involves managing product development programmes for
Mesos next generation photonic crystal based components.
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.

and optoelectronic components. Extensive experience of new product
development in optoelectronics (preferably active devices and planar
wafer scale optics) with a hands on approach. Experience of supplier
management is desirable as is product development stage gate processes.
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
