RFIC / Photonic Test Engineer – Elenion Technologies – New York, NY

Who We


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 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:
We are developing a unique high-speed electrical and photonic IC test

lab for novel R&D at the device and system level, and require Photonic Test

Engineers to assist with this effort. Working out of our Madison Avenue office,

the incumbents will be primarily responsible for test infrastructure

development and design verification testing on novel electro-optic devices.

We are searching for senior professionals and new graduates with the

flexibility to adapt to varying demands and deadlines, and the energy to thrive

in a fast-paced advanced technology development environment. Our ideal

candidate is ambitious, self-directed, independent, and adept in the lab. Of

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

to work very hard with similarly motivated people.
