We are looking for a highly motivated Fiber Engineer to join our advanced research division at Sterling, VA to support the development, integration, and test of advanced opto-electronics systems. The workload will at times include multiple concurrent projects with a mix of short duration research programs and longer duration technology maturation programs.

The successful candidate must have direct hands-on experience with fiber optics, willing to ask questions and have a passion to see what they build get used for a novel application. Experience with fiber splicing/handling is a major plus.

Essential Job Functions include the following, but are not limited to:

Contribute to the engineering development of fiber optics designs through design analysis component specification, and hardware assembly, integration, and test.
Coordinate and support the build, alignment, and performance characterization of passive fiber components like fiber coupler, fiber isolator and fiber combiner.
Maintain documentation for the product/system development process.
Create and present engineering reports for performance/qualification analysis.
Specify and purchase parts and equipment required for R&D prototype development.
Analyze device test performance for continual improvement and new requirements.

Minimum Requirements

Bachelor degree (or higher) in Electrical Engineering, Physics or related field(s) is required.
Knowledge of fiber optics theory and industry best practices associated with passive fiber components, fiber lasers, solid state lasers, Q-Switched lasers, electrical and thermal sub-systems.
Ability to design and execute experiments validating fiber optics system performance and correlate the results with the expected performance.
Strong communication and documentation skills for efficient multidisciplinary communication.

Desired Requirements

Experience with modeling and simulation using Solidworks, Labview, Comsol, and Matlab.
Ability to develop innovative solutions to complex fiber optics system challenges demonstrating ingenuity and creativity.
