We are looking an exceptional candidate to work in a challenging, fast paced environment developing next generation optical modules and engines so that we grow our market share and contribute to Silicon Photonics Product Division's mission to transform and lead datacenter connectivity and enable Intel's differentiation in the networking space. As Senior Optical Transceiver Design Engineer, the individual will be responsible for integrated design of optical transceiver modules at 100Gbps, 400Gbps and beyond in Intel's Silicon Photonics Products Division. The individual is responsible for defining transceiver module architecture and engineering specifications based on product-level requirements from technical marketing team, interacting with broad interdisciplinary team composed of experts in optical devices, electrical ICs, optical and electrical component packaging, PCB design, mechanical/thermal design, firmware and embedded software, manufacturing operations and test, design validation, quality and reliability, etc. to deliver optical transceivers from R&D to high-volume production with superior performance, reliability, cost and time to market versus the competition.
Masters of Science, Ph.D. or equivalent experience in Electrical Engineering or closely related field, plus 6+ years of experience in fiber optics, optical networking, optical and RF modulation, and data networking architectures
Demonstrated through successful product and systems development experiences involving complex EO components, sub-systems, and systems such as optics, digital/analog signal processing electronics.
Experience with physical layer optical transmission systems, ROSA/TOSA/BOSA, Mach-Zehnder modulators, burst receivers, optical polarization, link impairments and link power/OSNR budget estimation, is required
Direct contribution to technical solutions that integrate multiple disciplines or technologies into non-obvious system architectures that provide meaningfully unique and differentiated capability requires understanding of current and proposed competitive solutions, key performance indicators, and end-user mission objectives as well as understanding of interplay between technologies and engineering design T
Track record of developing models for operational environments, performing trade studies and sensitivity analyses, and comparing alternative architectures with system performance estimates and pragmatic estimation of unknown parameters
Can articulate what and how key system performance parameters should be tested early, can outline and write verification test plans for subsystem and system elements, can perform the testing and analyze the results
