Thorough understanding and experience in imaging optical system design, and performance quantification.

Proficiency in one or more optical modeling tools for imaging optics, e.g. Zemax, LightTools, etc.

Strong analytical model building and problem solving capability

Strong quantitative data analysis abilities, using JMP, Matlab, or equivalent tools.

Communicate clearly and efficiently across a range of technical disciplines with a broad slate of stakeholders, including management, peers, and suppliers.

Experiences in following fields is a plus: display module testing, AR/VR displays, microscopy, OCT, LIDAR, wavefront metrology, and optical grating.


You will be responsible for designing and developing industry leading optical metrology systems for calibrating and testing optical display modules, across multiple product lines (e.g. vision pro, phone), in NPI (new product introduction) stage.

– Design and specify optical displays’ metrology system and key components, e.g. lens, optical relays, image sensing module, photodetectors, light sources

– Quantify optical metrology instruments’ requirements, through analytics, numerical modeling, and bench-top testing.

– Lead optical instrument vendors for customization. Validate and qualify the instrument performance to meet mass production requirements.

– Define calibration & measurement Engineering Requirement Specification (ERS) for optical instruments and automated systems.

– Conduct effective FA (failure analysis) & CA (corrective action) for optical systems.

– Analyze large amounts of lab data and NPI data for validation, FA, and improvement purposes.

– Provide crisp and rigorous presentation and report, on subjects listed above. And connect with a broad range of cross-functional teams.

– Requires domestic and international travel for work (up to 20%)
