Place of employment


What we offer:

Your tasks and responsibilities

  • Main task for the position is to contribute towards activities within a worldwide end-to-end product development team focused on successfully developing, prototyping, and producing advanced optoelectronic components (optics + electronics + package). The position involves the unification of Optical and Physical Modeling and Simulation to ensure robust Structural-Thermal-Optical-Performance (STOP)
  • Work within a worldwide multidisciplinary development team to provide software solutions integrating both optical and mechanical/physical modeling to enable robust optical designs and failure analysis – so-called “STOP” analysis
  • Working together with ams’ Physics Modelling Group
  • Define simulation approaches and select appropriate physical models and workflows
  • Carry out optical modeling combined with physical modeling of the elements under different physical conditions to obtain optical system performance and verification.
  • Generate resulting product analysis documentation including opto-mechanical design specifications, and design performance reports
  • Perform engineering product verification to ensure compliance to requirements
