Senior Opto-Mechanical Design Engineer

Mountain View, CA
About us:
Aeva is building the next generation of sensing and perception for autonomous vehicles and beyond. With its unique ability to measure instantaneous velocity for each pixel, long-range performance at high resolutions, while being free from LiDAR or sunlight interference, Aeva’s 4D LiDAR is built from the ground up at silicon photonics scale for mass-market applications.

Role Overview:
Aeva is looking for a Mechanical Design Engineer to join our growing team! This individual will design our optoelectronic products and carry them through the entire product lifecycle. They will be a key member in the development of new products from concept to final builds, partner with cross-functional teams along the way!

What you'll be doing:

  • Development of new products including execution on concept, design, drawings, vendor selection, part evaluation, and product builds
  • Developing cutting edge Silicon Photonics (SiP) optoelectronic devices
  • Development of free space optics optoelectronic devices
  • Detailed Tolerance Analyses of components and assemblies.
  • Maintenance, design, testing, and improvement of existing products
  • Product designs utilizing miniature optics, sub-micron alignments, and micron level passive placements
  • Fixture design and development ranging from prototype to production
  • Integration of mechanical, optical, and electrical components
  • Lead reviews of mechanical development activities
  • Interacting with CMs and suppliers to provide mechanical support for manufacturing of parts and products

What you have:

  • Minimum of BS degree in Mechanical Engineering with 5+ years of experience in related engineering roles
  • Experience with detail design, development and validation of mechanical assemblies for prototype volumes to mass manufacturing
  • Solid understanding of design for assembly and integration in complex optoelectronic devices including tolerance stack analysis
  • Knowledge in manufacturing processes for assembly of optoelectronic devices (die attach, wirebond, active alignment, hermetic sealing)
  • Experience in design for manufacturing across the entire product life cycle from concept thru volume production
  • Knowledge of part manufacturing processes such as plastic injection molding, machining, thin film and thick film ceramics, HTCC ceramics, and ceramic ferrules is desirable

Nice to have:

  • Prototype and production equipment design experience
  • Manufacturing experience of optoelectronic devices
  • Geometric optics knowledge
  • Experience in SiP assembly processes and design rules

What's in it for you:

  • Be part of a fast paced and dynamic team
  • Very competitive compensation and meaningful stock grants
  • Exceptional benefits: Medical, Dental, Vision, and more
  • Unlimited PTO: We care about results, not punching timecards
