Optical Engineer, Test & Metrology

As an Optical Test Engineer, you will develop optical test systems for measurement/inspection and calibration of imaging systems. You will characterize optical challenges for early prototype modules and derive testing and calibration methods. You will put these methods into practice through work with internal and external fixture designers, to source and build efficient optical and mechatronic test solutions. You are skilled both at identifying methods to meet challenging calibration and test requirements, and designing camera and lens system integrations to achieve these requirements. You are able to build out an optical bench to verify that design parameters are achieved. You are also comfortable working with other teams to validate test system matches original design intent. You possess knowledge of optical, electrical, mechanical, and software fields to deliver complex optical calibration devices.
