Software Engineer – Test Station Development – Elenion Technologies – New York, NY

Who We


Technologies is driving innovation in silicon photonics, an emerging technology

poised to significantly increase performance and reduce acosts 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 Columbia.

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:
The Test team at

our Manhattan office is currently searching for a Software Engineer to develop

complex automated test executives for test stations to characterize RF

electro-optic devices, components, and modules. This function is integral to

the success of our design efforts, as our in-house automated-test-system must

quickly feed accurate measurements back into the design cycle.

Our ideal

candidate is a C/C++ expert who is ambitious, self-directed and independent. Of

particular importance to us are the ability and desire to learn, and the drive

to work very hard with similarly motivated people.
