The Optical Metrology and Performance Team (OMAP) is looking for an Optical Metrology Engineering Tech Lead to evaluate the optical properties in the system level which affect visual perception and comfort. This work involves understanding the performance requirements for the optical system from end-use case and then creating specifications for the optical performance of the subcomponents and systems. Will also include proposing methods of doing optical measurements that are designed to quantify visual figures of merits.


BS or MS in Optical Engineering, Vision Science, Physics, Electrical Engineering.

10+ years of experience in optical technologies.

Experience with hands-on characterization of optical test systems, performing testing and validation of optical components and systems.

Understanding of optical metrology fundamentals, system requirement definition, especially with regards to lens optics and display.

Hands-on troubleshooting skills with optical systems failure analysis.

5+ years experience with data and image analysis. High proficiency with analysis tools such as Python, MATLAB, C, Minitab or JMP.

Communication and presentation skills.


Work with Applied Perception Science, Product Optical Engineering and Systems Engineering teams to understand what matters in the product from a performance point of view.

Take input and convert into parameters that can be objectively measured using off the shelf or custom instruments at the component, sub-system and the full system level.

Drive simulation, modeling work streams to set specifications and allowable errors limits on the measured parameters so that the overall performance is good from the end use point of view.

Define custom optical metrology instruments and methods and define the roadmaps. Work with cross-functional teams and or outsource partners to build the instruments.

Create and own optical characterization and validation plans.

Present conclusive results and assess visual/optical performance given design goals and product requirements.

Provide actionable recommendations and relevant failure analysis to debug or root-cause issues.

Create/drive contents to run on prototypes to support visual evaluation or user studies.

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

Hands-on industrial experience with AR/VR products.

Experience in one or more optical design tools such as Zemax, Code V, LightTools, FRED, or ASAP.

Experience in computer vision metrics and techniques.

Knowledge of vision science and perceptual psychology.

Experience with typical image processing algorithms and SW/HW implementation through the entire pipeline.
