Application deadline: 

Saturday, December 21, 2019

Quanterro Technologies is currently looking for a Senior Photonic Design Engineer to join the
team. The successful candidate will be primarily responsible for design and development of
high speed photonic components such as optical modulator, detector, photonic integrated
circuit (PIC) for next generation products based on coherent detection technologies.
Responsibilities include, but not limited to, device design and simulation, test chip design and
tape-out, wafer-level testing plan and data analysis, PIC architecture selection and specification
definition, and coordinating die-level testing, subsystem testing, and reliability testing. The
successful candidate will also play an important role in evaluating and determining chip
integration architecture/platform and closely collaborate with process integration engineer for
PIC development. This position will be multi-task oriented and be interacting with cross
functional teams. You must have an excellent track record in design and development of highspeed optical devices such as modulators, photodetectors, III-V semiconductor, Si, as well as
of some passive components such as photonic fiber coupler, waveguide splitter, and
polarization splitter/rotator. Be willing to work in a team environment and communicate results
with multiple levels of the organization.
You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this
position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are
considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates. Experience listed below would be
obtained through relevant previous job and/or research experiences.
Minimum qualifications
 MS in Electrical Engineering, Photonics, Optoelectronics, Optics, Physics, and similar
technical discipline with 4+ years of experience in optical modulator and passive optical
device design, modeling and simulation, and testing
 1+ years of experience of in design and development of high speed photonic components
such as photonic modulator, Ge and/or III-V semiconductor waveguide photodetectors
and SiGe APD
 3+ years of hands-on experience in various optical design/simulation tools such as
Beamprop, Fullwave, Fimmwave, Fimmprop, Lumerical FDTD /Mode solutions as well
as high speed simulation tools such as High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) and
Advanced Design System (ADS)
 3+ years of hands-on experience in semiconductor device and process simulation tools
such as Sentaurus and Atlas
Preferred qualifications
 5+ years of experience in photonic integrated circuit design and characterization,
particularly in Silicon Photonics
 5+ years of experience in integration platform such as SiN/Si system and SiON/Si system
