Senior Photonics Test Development 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:
We are looking for a test development engineer to join our test development team!

What you'll do:

  • Responsible for design, development, and qualification of test platforms used for internal validation and deployment in NPI manufacturing line at CMs
  • Work with external vendors to evaluate, specify, and procure advanced test platforms for photonics components such as lasers, detectors, and Silicon Photonics based Photonic integrated circuits (PIC)
  • Develop custom test platforms for photonics components, subassemblies, and lidar optical modules for validation test
  • Design test fixtures and integrate with motion stages for custom PIC, laser, and subassembly test platforms
  • Design and build high throughput automated test platforms for NPI and manufacturing line deployment
  • Perform system integration of instruments and optics for photonic test systems
  • Run test system debug and GR&R tests for system qualification
  • Prepare and maintain detailed design documents and BOM for test systems

What you have:

  • MS or Ph.D. in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related technical discipline
  • Experience with optical alignment systems
  • Experience in Silicon Photonics R&D, laser development, or related photonics product development
  • Experience with Python coding for instrument control and test automation

Nice to have:

  • Experience with SolidWorks for designing test fixtures for motion system integration, DUT socketing mechanical design and DUT thermal management

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
