Job Description :

  • Permanent position for a Senior Optical Engineer specifying, designing, testing, and qualifying optical modules and individual components for use in next generation agile optical networks.

  • Additional work in the transmission laboratory to define and validate transmission models and component/module performance and fully evaluate transmission issues relating to specifications on individual components and sub-modules.

  • Develop complete specifications for optical components and modules that reflect the downstream components capabilities and upstream requirements for circuit packs or systems.

  • Design optical fabric simulations and modeling of optical systems with design and modeling tools such as Zemax and Matlab.

  • Validate transmission performance of complete optical transmission systems; conduct experiments to characterize components and subsystems.

  • Help develop manufacturing, assembly and qualification processes to build products.

  • Troubleshoot optical issues in benchtop and prototype modules, prove proposals for performance improvements and implement solutions.

  • Work closely with suppliers to resolve any issues related to performance, qualification status and cost of components.

  • Interface with operations team to develop documentation and test processes related to modules.

Required Qualifications :

  • MS Electrical Engineering, Optical Engineering or Physics, PhD preferred.

  • Minimum of 10 years experience with DWDM components and DWDM transmission or similarly complex optical subsystems.

  • In-depth understanding of optical transmission issues, especially as they relate to systems with

  • intelligent and highly automated optical layers including dynamics of modules and components, fiber propagation issues and impairments from sources statistical in nature such as PMD.

  • Experience with design and modeling tools such as Zemax and Matlab.

  • Solid understanding of optical performance parameters (bandwidth, IL, PDL, PMD, CD, ripple) and specification sensitivity and interdependencies as they relate to agile optical networks.

  • In-depth understanding of optical sub-systems, including wavelength selective switches, optical monitors and dispersion compensators.

  • Experience with design and release to manufacturing of complex, integrated, optical subsystems.

  • Experience with writing optical design specifications and test plans.

  • Experience with a variety of test and measurement equipment including optical spectrum analyzers and interferometers.

  • Demonstrated experience with general fiber handling practices and working knowledge of optical coatings and optical component fabrication techniques.

  •  Proficiency with VB, Excel, database tools, GPIB equipment and product lifecycle management

  • systems is required.

  • Experience leading technical teams, mentoring junior engineers, and managing technical

  • development projects is highly desired.
