Job Description


    • Job Description:

This laser and optical engineering position is in Manufacturing Engineering. The successful candidate will develop and improve manufacturing processes for the production of complex optical and laser systems within a fast paced manufacturing environment. The candidate will also apply engineering principles and troubleshooting skills to provide day-to-day technical support to active production lines.

This is a sustaining engineering position for current and newly introduced lasers and sub-systems (beam-conditioning optics, modulators, polarizers, etc) . Timely resolving assembly and test issues faced during production is important in this position. The work encompasses failure analysis related to defective materials, unstable or errant processes/equipment, and ranges from new components/sub-assemblies to field return units.


Job Duties:

• Manage the transfer of new product from design engineering to manufacturing sites for mass production, inclusive of transfer planning, facility preparation, production team training, build & test procedure, material and tools/equipment readiness.

• Develop and evaluate manufacturing processes by applying knowledge of product design, fabrication, assembly, tooling, and materials; conferring with design engineering, equipment vendors, production and field service teams.

• Generate assembly process flows, description and work instructions.

• Timely resolve daily issues that impede fulfillment of production orders.

•  Improve manufacturing efficiency by analyzing and planning work flow, space requirements, equipment layout, etc.

•  Assure product and process quality by developing appropriate testing methods; analyzing process capabilities; establishing standards; and validating manufacturing processes.

•  Effectively apply process control (e.g. statistical process control (SPC)) to monitor, analyze, and define errant processes, and to refine processes to reduce variability.

•  Review production rejects, provide appropriate decisions and actions for disposition.

•  Prepare product and process reports by collecting, analyzing and summarizing failure/defect information and trends; following up with corrective/improvement actions.

•  Devise and submit engineering change orders (ECO) to refine processes and parts.

•  Determine the calibration and maintenance processes for production tools and test equipment.

•  Qualify supplier/design/procedure change by developing relevant test methods and documenting the outcome.

•  Provide technical support to field service.

•  Develop and implement continuous improvement projects, applying a systematic approach to problem-solving.


Specific Requirements for this Position:

• Good knowledge of solid-state and fiber-based lasers.

• In-depth knowledge of precision optics including lenses, polarization optics, modulators and optical harmonic generation.

• Hands on experience with assembly and test of optical, electro-optical, electro-mechanical & laser systems.

• Experience in beam characterization using commercially available equipment, e.g. Spiricon M2 instrument & Ophir beam profiler.

• Experience in using multi-meter, function generator and oscilloscope.

• Ability to read and understand mechanical drawings and electrical wiring diagrams.

• Hands on experience using 3D CAD software for simple jig/fixture design will be an added advantage.

• Good working knowledge of MS Excel, MS Powerpoint and MS Words is essential.

• Experience in programming (e.g. VBA, C#, data analytics, database, etc) will be an added advantage.

• Working knowledge of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems will be an advantage.

• Good knowledge of manufacturing best practices (e.g. ISO 9001, Kanban, LEAN, 8D, Design-for-Manufacturability, etc)

• Familiarity with SPC methodology for process management will be an advantage.

• Strong troubleshooting skills.

• Ability to multi-task in support of multiple product lines simultaneously.

• A good team player yet able to work independently and with minimal supervision.


Education and Related Experience:

Master / degree in laser, optic or electro-optical engineering.

Candidates with a degree in Industrial or Manufacturing Engineering and with experience in the manufacturing of laser systems is highly desirable.


All Successful candidates can expect a very competitive remuneration package and a comprehensive range of benefits.
