Optical Systems Engineer, Calibration and Verification
at Magic Leap, Inc.
Responsible for design and delivery of robust calibration/verification processes for display, camera and novel sensors. Ideal candidate can apply fundamental optical and machine learning principles in conjunction with comprehensive experiment design, data collection, and analysis to identify potential issues early and often. Ideal candidate has strong collaboration skills required to implement calibration algorithms and define system requirements across multiple disciplines (opto-mechanical, factory operations, program management, perception software, etc.). Ideal candidate must be willing to independently pursue new skills/knowledge as needed to complete projects (including investigation of cutting-edge technologies).
Design and deliver robust calibration/verification processes for display and sensors backed by fundamental optical and machine learning principles.
Collaborate across multiple disciplines to implement calibration algorithms and define system requirements.
Design of experiments (including collecting, analyzing, and interpretation of data). Focus on simulation/experimentation early and often to identify potential/future issues. Adept at creating mitigation plans to address issues.
Drive schedule for calibration/verification processes in sync with critical high-level product goals defined by organization.
Effectively communicate potential issues (reinforced by data) with lead-time to correct.
Ideal candidate will be eager to share knowledge through documentation (best practices, lessons learned, etc.) and presentations.
2-3 years related experience.
Experience with camera/imaging systems and general laboratory optics is required.
Experience with data analysis, statistics and graphing (such as JMP) is required.
Excellent written, verbal and presentation skills are required.
Software experience with technical computing software (MATLAB, Python, C#, and/or C++) is required.
Must have strong analytical and problem solving skills and good organizational skills.
Must be confident in a highly dynamic and creative environment.
