Opto-Mechanical Lead 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:
We are looking for an Opto-Mechanical Lead/Manager to drive Opto-Mechanical designs and carry them from prototype to production.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Leading mechanical development of products including execution on architecture, concept, design, drawings, FEA analysis, tolerance analysis, vendor selection, part evaluation, and product builds.
  • Developing cutting edge Silicon Photonics (SiP) and free space optics optoelectronic devices utilizing miniature optics, sub-micron alignments, and micron level passive placements
  • Integration of mechanical, optical, and electrical components. 
  • Fixture design and development ranging from prototype to production.
  • Leading reviews of mechanical development activities
  • Interacting with CMs and suppliers to provide mechanical support for manufacturing of parts and products

What you have:

  • Minimum of BS degree in Mechanical Engineering with 10+ years of experience in related engineering roles
  • Minimum 5+ years in a technical leadership role
  • Experience with detail design, development and validation of mechanical assemblies for prototype volumes to mass manufacturing
  • Solid understanding of design for assembly and integration in complex optoelectronic devices including tolerance stack analysis
  • Knowledge in manufacturing processes for assembly of optoelectronic devices (die attach, wirebond, precision passive alignment, active alignment, hermetic sealing)
  • Experience in design for manufacturing across the entire product life cycle from concept thru volume production
  • Knowledge of part manufacturing processes such as plastic injection molding, machining, thin film and thick film ceramics, HTCC ceramics, and ceramic ferrules is desirable.

Nice to have:

  • Management experience leading a team of mechanical engineers
  • Prototype and production equipment design experience
  • Telecommunications TOSA and ROSA design experience
  • Manufacturing experience of optoelectronic devices
  • Geometric optics knowledge
  • Solidworks design experience

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
