Senior Photonics 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:
We are looking for an expert in laser test & characterization to join our core engineering team!

What you'll do:

  • Responsible for Laser and Photonics characterization at the wafer, bar, and chip-scale
  • Drive the automation of test procedures to deliver statistically significant data sets across multiple tape-outs
  • Drive characterization of photonics and laser over temperature for power, noise, and other device attributes
  • Deliver test solutions for characterization of photonics at the wafer and chip scale
  • Create designed experiments to map device performance while working with Design, Process, and System Engineering teams to stabilize and improve product screening at wafer-probe and package level testing
  • Interact with suppliers and optimize characterization plans based on supplier's processes and capabilities
  • Clearly document test procedures and provide concise test reports that summarize the findings

What you have:

  • MS or PhD in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Optical Science, or related technical discipline
  • Good understanding of photonics to understand and debug laser & photonics tests
  • Hands-on experience with laser and photonics test at wafer, bar, and chip level 
  • Experience with fiber alignment and automation
  • Experience with testing to qualify laser and photonics components for high volume
  • Demonstrated ability to clearly communicate test findings and feedback to design

Nice to Have:

  • Experience with simulation to correlate measured device performance to expectation and help close the gaps
  • Hands on process development experience for optical alignments

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
