Job Description

Design Engineer- System Integration Engineer

Optical Modules Development Group

Contract position 12-18 months, M-F 40 hours weekly

Our client is seeking multiple physicist/Engineer to support and develop optical / photonic sensor systems used within their photolithography tools. These systems typically include light sources, detectors, optical and electro-optical components, fiber optics, electronics and signal processing software functioning in close collaboration with the rest of the lithography system. Understanding the components in their relation to the sensor system and understanding the interaction with the rest of the lithography tool and the measurement process is of fundamental importance.

Your integration team role is to test hardware/software twinscan equipment in support of the development of new products within D&E . Evaluate, install and test the function and performance of new complex alignment subsystems,  support engineers in your team to evaluate and diagnose problems, report that all the hardware and software is working as it should. You’ll use your existing twinscan knowledge, expertise and analytical skills to analyze if and why the equipment fails and independently and accurately prepare written technical reports. You need to Leverage your powers of investigation and your network of contacts within the team and company.

Contribute your knowledge and expertise on custom technology required on new development projects. You’ll then provide the services needed to fine tune the equipment and to resolve issues in order to make new equipment ready for volume production. The willingness to work  some flexible and extended hours and  some weekends.

Demonstrate experience using computer applications, including data statistical, word processing, spreadsheets and presentation software. Have the ability to complete assignments with attention to detail and high degree of accuracy. Perform effectively in environments with frequently changing workload and competing demands. Work independently or as part of a team and follow through on assignments with minimal supervision. Establish and maintain cooperative working relationships with co-workers. Key component of this position are using general Physics, Electronics, Mechanical aptitude and knowledge of pneumatics, hydraulics, electronics, and semiconductor manufacturing processes.
