Job Description: 

We are accepting applications for a sharp, motivated, energetic team player who will take on a key individual contributor role of Senior Optical Engineer. You will help solve the immediate challenge of designing and implementing new optical designs for commercial instruments, beyond the concept and prototype phase. 

Ideally, you’ll have deep experience with design engineering, operations, and ramping up, as well as accomplishing related patents. In lieu of extensive years in the optics field and/ or patents, we’re looking for a bright engineer with proven evolution of relevant engineering roles and contributions.

You’ll get to collaborate with a cross-functional team of engineers, chip designers, and biologists to develop advanced applications and instrumentation in-house.  

A few of the responsibilities:

  • Design optical systems for a next generation biotech instrument.
  • Develop physical optics simulations to guide optical design and chip design to support our single cell manipulation process.
  • Evaluate and recommend sensor technologies and formulate overall detection strategy for fluorescence assay experiments.
