Do you want to take part in accelerating the networking solution across NVIDIA's product portfolio?

NVIDIA Co-packaged silicon-photonics group seeks a dedicated R&D engineer to join our lasers and silicon-photonics validation team.

We seek a skilled and experienced electro-optics or lasers engineer or physicist to join our team.

The ideal candidate will have experience in high-speed testing of fiber-optic modules for telecom/datacom, laser development, and post-silicon verification.

In this role, you will execute post-silicon verification & electro-optical & electrical debugging of Silicon-Photonics-based chips and products of NVIDIA. You will work closely with the R&D team, with internal verification teams, architects, FW developers, board engineers, and other stakeholders to bringup, integrate, troubleshoot, diagnose, and resolve technical set-ups. This role requires hands-on experience and a deep understanding of high-speed transceivers, as well as excellent integration, problem-solving skills, and strong communication abilities.

What you’ll be doing:

  • You will lead the design of verification setups for bringing up and testing the new SiPh transceiver chips.

  • Develop and implement laser testing methodologies and procedures to perform laser testing and characterization, including modulation and noise measurements.

  • Provide technical support and assistance to manufacturers of silicon photonics testing platforms.

  • Troubleshoot and diagnose technical issues related to equipment, processes, and software.

  • Document experimental procedures, results, and findings accurately and comprehensively.

  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams, including engineering, product development, and manufacturing, to resolve complex technical issues and implement system upgrades or modifications.

What we need to see:

  • BSc. Degree (MSc. an advantage) in Electrical Engineering, Physics, or related fields, with more than 5 years of experience.

  • 5+ years of relevant experience in both laser testing and in high-speed electro-optical testing.

  • Proven experience working in an optics and laser laboratory, preferably in a research or development environment.

  • Strong problem-solving, debugging, and analysis with examples to prove it.

  • Knowledge in signal integrity and high-speed signal measurement of electro-optical high-speed interfaces.

  • Experience with establishing complex high-speed lab setups. Proficient in using electro-optical & electrical measurement tools such as oscilloscope,VNA, BERT & spectrum analyzers.

  • Basic understanding of PCB layout and high-speed board design issues.

  • Strong collaborative and interpersonal skills, with an ability to successfully guide and influence.

  • Ability to manage multiple tasks and priorities simultaneously, and work independently and demonstrate a high level of initiative and self-motivation.

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Experience with highspeed transceivers verification/ validation

  • Post-silicon validation and/or customer on-site debug/FA

  • Knowledge of programming languages, such as MATLAB, Python, or LabVIEW, for data analysis and automation.

  • Strong knowledge of laser diode physics, fiber optic technology, and silicon photonics technology and devices.
