Santa Clara, California

In the Office of the CTO, we are focused on bringing Applied Materials innovations to new and adjacent markets. Our Engineered Optics team is creating new super thin (sub micron) optical surfaces based on nanometer-sized structures on transparent substrates (known as “metasurface based optics” or “flat optics”), which manipulate light in the deep sub wavelength domain and enable previously impossible capabilities. These components will be the most fundamental change in optics in hundreds of years and could be deployed in AR/VR devices, cameras, projectors, sensors, and a host of yet to be imagined opportunities - there is endless potential.

Our dedicated and talented team is working to perfect this new technology. If you’re an entrepreneurial-oriented, enthusiastic engineer who is willing to learn and challenge yourself in creating cutting-edge technology to revolutionize the field of optics - we want you to be a part of our team.

Engineered Optics is currently seeking to hire a Systems Engineer with at least 15 years of successful work experience driving opto-mechanical systems engineering, precision motion control, and systems architecting.
