Job Description

The Senior Optical Engineer will join a world class optics and laser development team which provides leading-edge solutions into the global defence sector. The extensive product range includes targeting lasers, stabilised laser delivery systems, electro-optic countermeasures solutions and electro-optic targeting and surveillance systems. This position has been created during an exciting period of technology development and business growth, resulting in real opportunities for continuous career development for the motivated individual.

The successful candidate will be involved in the research, design, development and manufacture phases of the product lifecycle. The optical engineer assumes responsibility for the delivery of all optical design aspects of a product whilst working within a multidisciplinary project team where they will collaborate closely with other domain experts. They champion rigorous optical engineering approaches and drive the delivery of robust and cost-effective design solutions. They are often required to liaise with the customer community and have regular interactions with the external supply chain.

The optical engineer contributes to system architecture definition, specifies and develops optical designs, carries out analyses and performance simulations, supports the integration and test of systems and works closely with manufacturing colleagues and suppliers to ensure the delivery of high quality products.

At senior level, the engineer is expected to have considerable experience in modelling or designing optical systems using appropriate commercial tools such as ZEMAX, ASAP or equivalent. A good grounding in classical optics principles is required and knowledge of lasers is an advantage.
