Our Senior Process Engineer takes a demanding set of functions and turn them into the optics technology that makes the magic work. They monitor and control eyepieces fabrication and product performance. In addition, they will manage tool productivity, maintenance, and yields, conduct data analysis to improve processes, and manage quality measurement for their tool/process. Work closely with Quality engineers to improve product yield and to troubleshoot process flow from root causes to equipment tuning. Process/equipment engineers own and lead the stability, improvement, maintenance, and performance functions of the tools. They drive continuous improvement to tool/process to meets requirements of the manufacturing ramp.
