Lumerical is a leading developer of photonic simulation software – software which enables research and development professionals to predict how light behaves within complex structures, circuits, and systems. Photonics unlocks many possibilities for the world’s most innovative companies who increasingly rely on virtual prototyping to explore new product concepts and optimize designs. Our customers are developing the technology of tomorrow – things like LiDAR systems for autonomous cars, virtual reality headsets, cellphone cameras, communications equipment for data centers and new platforms for quantum computing.
As an Applications Engineer, you will take on challenging R&D problems, work independently to meet requirements using original or existing concepts and communicate solutions concisely. You will work with Product Development and Marketing project teams to develop and extend product capabilities in new application areas, and with customers to help them achieve their goals using Lumerical’s photonic design software.
You will focus on photonic integrated circuit applications. Initially, you will join the team dedicated to building a compact model framework for creating and publishing photonic models, including models calibrated to specific foundry processes. You will also develop associated workflows to enable complete photonic PDKs, which may involve both Lumerical and 3rd party tools.
