Job Description

Optical Manufacturing Engineer

TeraDiode is a Massachusetts based high-growth startup and a world leader in developing high-power, high-brightness diode laser systems. Our kW-class direct diode laser technology is a disruptive force in the materials processing industry, which is currently dominated by fiber lasers and carbon dioxide lasers. Our patented wavelength beam combining technology was developed by our co-founders from MIT Lincoln Laboratory and is designed for defense, industrial, and commercial materials processing applications.

Duties and Responsibilities
  • Apply experience with opto-mechanical laser assembly and laser alignment to assemble, test, and contribute to the manufacture of direct diode laser systems
  • Review customer specifications, drawings and other supporting documents.
  • Investigate and initiate corrective action to manufacturing problems arising in the manufacture of one or more of the following: optical components, parts and materials, assembly of optical, mechanical, electrical, electronic or electromechanical units, assemblies, subsystems and systems or manufacturing problems associated with the inspection and/or testing of organization produced products.
  • Review, evaluate, propose and make drawing changes on production released material and coordinates these changes with manufacturing and support groups
  • Act as technical liaison between production planning and engineering personnel.
  • Use tools, such as power meters and spectrum analyzers
  • Apply experience with manufacturing processes including Six Sigma, lean manufacturing, and statistical process control (SPC)

Preferred Qualifications
  • BS, MS or PhD in Engineering, Physics or Optics
  • 5-10 years industrial experience in optics and manufacturing
  • Two to three years of assembly, test, industrial experience with optical test equipment in addition to experience in two or more of the following areas is required: fiber lasers, solid-state lasers, semiconductor lasers, laser-based optical subsystems, laser stabilization, high-power lasers, and optical engineering. Optical assembly and laser manufacturing experience is required.
  • Thorough knowledge of optical and electrical test equipment such as power meters, spectrum analyzers, zygo interferometers, CCD/CMOS cameras, and photodiodes
  • Requires knowledge of Six Sigma, SPC and/or ISO process controls
  • Experience with data acquisition software (LabVIEW), data analysis software (MATLAB, IGOR Pro, Excel) is desirable
  • Optical design software experience desired (Zemax)
  • High tech experience within a fast-paced, start up environment
  • Successful track record accomplishing desired results
  • Effective, hard worker with a team player "can-do" approach
