Process Application Engineers work to develop processes, pilot-scale tools, and prototypes for optical and display components in our AR and Smart glasses using semiconductor and optical fabrication techniques.


A Masters or PhD degree in the field of Engineering, Optical Sciences, Physics, or similar with 5+ years of relevant work experience

In-depth knowledge and hands-on experience with Nanoimprint Lithography (NIL) applications and systems. Experience with different types of NIL equipment configurations (plate-to-plate, roll-to-plate, and roll-to-roll) and the relevant process flow

In-depth knowledge of NIL mold/mastering fabrication

Knowledgeable on the NIL resin composition, surface treatment in the NIL process, and the trade-off between key performance metrics

Experience troubleshooting complicated technical issues

Detailed oriented with effective critical thinking, structured problem solving, and practical application of Design of Experiments (DOE)

Demonstrated experience using computer applications, including data analysis tools, word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation software (e.g. JMP, MATLAB, Tableau, Excel, Minitab)

Demonstrated experience to work effectively and efficiently with diverse teams, inclusive of internal and external partners


Own the definition, selection and vendor development of nanoimprint lithography systems (hardware/software elements, automation, reliability, manufacturability etc.) to meet the unique imaging requirements of our waveguide technology

Identify gaps between imprint system capability and required performance specifications, work closely with vendor on new feature development to close gaps (including proposing new functions, technical discussion and providing engineering testing and feedback)

In-depth technical engagement with internal stakeholders and the vendor

Collaborate with Design, Integration, Process Engineering and Equipment Engineering to define and develop a Nanoimprint Lithography (NIL) technology roadmap to meet our waveguide requirements

Drive improvement projects to increase tool’s reliability, availability, productivity and utilization

Maintain a safety-first work environment

Additional Requirements(额外要求)
