Senior Laser Test Engineer

Mountain View, CA
About us:
Aeva is building the next generation of sensing and perception for autonomous vehicles and beyond. With its unique ability to measure instantaneous velocity for each pixel, long-range performance at high resolutions, while being free from LiDAR or sunlight interference, Aeva’s 4D LiDAR is built from the ground up at silicon photonics scale for mass-market applications.

Role Overview:
Test, characterization, and validation of lasers and amplifiers to provide feedback to design and NPI teams.

What you'll do:

  • Comprehensive characterization of edge emitted lasers including pulse and CW measurement over temperature
  • Development of test methods and robust test platforms for rapid throughput measurements
  • Characterization of lasers including LIV, spectra, intensity and phase noise, gain, fundamental parameter extraction
  • Characterization of high-power amplifiers including gain, saturation optical power, noise figure, spectra, and fundamental parameter extraction
  • Characterization of high power device packaging
  • NPI EVT and EVT characterization of laser and amplifiers and burning requirements.

What you have:

  • 5+ years of experience with laser and amplifier testing in CW and pulse mode
  • Experience with pulse laser drivers and RIN measurement
  • Experienced in developing custom test setups for boutique characterization studies as well as experience with standard test platforms
  • Demonstrated experience with characterization of high-power devices
  • Experience in working with cross-functional teams including process, test, packaging
  • Can-do attitude with a goal to deliver cutting edge test solutions
  • Experience with working in a fast-paced, agile environment

Nice to Have:

  • Experience with laser and amplifier reliability
  • Experience with validation of lasers and amplifiers for volume products
  • Experience with CoS/CoC packaged devices as well as integrated photonics products

What's in it for you:

  • Be part of a fast paced and dynamic team
  • Very competitive compensation and meaningful stock grants
  • Exceptional benefits: Medical, Dental, Vision, and more
  • Unlimited PTO: We care about results, not punching timecards
