Apple is looking for a highly motivated Optical Engineer to join the Panel Process and Optics (PPO) Engineering team.

Key Qualifications

  • Strong lab skills in designing, building, and running experiments with precision optical setups.
  • Ability to develop and execute cohesive strategies to tackle and/or understand difficult problems using rigorous scientific method.
  • Experience with broad range of optical systems (interferometers, LED, lasers, optical breadboarding alignment techniques)
  • Prior experience with designing holographic optical elements or diffractive optics is a plus
  • Familiarity with one or multiple optical modeling tools (Light Tools, Zemax, etc) is a plus
  • Familiarity with optomechanical design setup and simulation is a plus

Description

The position will span the technological space between research and product development. We are seeking innovative thinkers who can build novel solutions to difficult optical problems and take ideas from initial concept to product feasibility. A strong background in optical breadboarding and precision alignment is important. The candidate should also have a good background in modeling and simulation of optical systems in order to validate experimental results. The successful candidate will be responsible for working with the team to identify and develop new ideas in the area of holography and diffractive optics. Responsibilities will span working with the team to identify relevant experiments, crafting demonstrations and test-plans, designing, prototyping and building the tools to perform the tests. We encourage proactive work teams and require everyone to be highly self motivated. A successful candidate needs to be flexible, receptive to ideas from others, team oriented, and willing to work with technologists, engineers and others for continuing to push the technology envelope. Expect this work to include collaborating with multi-functional teams responsible for designing and producing exciting new displays and component technologies.
