Senior Photonic Design Engineer – Elenion Technologies – New York, NY

Who We Are:

Elenion Technologies is driving
innovation in silicon photonics, an emerging technology poised to significantly
increase performance and reduce costs of optical systems. We are headquartered
in New York City, with offices in San Jose, California and Munich, Germany.

After pursuing a path of
intensely focused research and development for two years in stealth-mode,
Elenion recently unveiled itself to the world and has assembled a world-class
team of multi-disciplinary experts. Members of our leadership team have built
and sold several companies, published papers in the top scientific journals in
the world, raised hundreds of millions of dollars of venture capital, and have
built products and deployed them to the market. The technical team includes
world leaders in our space, and many members are PhD scientists and engineers
from the top schools in the world, such as MIT, Caltech, UChicago, and

Elenion is developing
next-generation photonic integrated circuit technologies and solutions for a
broad range of datacom and telecom applications. It is almost certain that, as
you read this web page, the data traveling from the server to your computer or
phone went through hardware that someone on our team designed, built, or deployed.

This team builds the hardware at the heart of the internet.
We think that’s cool. Hopefully, you do too.

The Position:

We are searching for a Silicon
