Swiss-based tech startup WayRay is on a mission to create a future where any transparent surface is a window into virtual worlds.
We are currently seeking bright minds to join our team of talented professionals and help bring this vision of the future into the present.
At present, we are looking for an Optical Engineer to be a key member of the Optics department that develops the future of holographic technology.
Tasks: Hands-on design, engineering, and testing of optical elements and systems for HUD applications across industries.
Design, modeling, analysis, and tolerancing of complex optical systems with specific characteristics and limitations.
Stray-light analysis; physical optics (incl. diffraction, interference, scattering) modeling.
Alignment and optimization of optical modules and systems.
Work efficiently in cross-functional teams on the integration of optical sub-systems.
Collaborate with vendors to develop customized optical components and modules.
Work on multiple projects in parallel.
Required: Higher education in Optics or similar. 3-6 years of experience in Optics design (aspherical, freeform and plastic optics.)
Experience in developing imaging optical systems in ZEMAX Experience with tolerancing, assigning technical requirements on optical parts, drawing preparation according to ISO 10110 Basic experience in programming (С, С, Matlab) Fluent English and German would be a plus.
Nice to have: “3D thinking” – able to understand and work with systems with multiple axis breaks, able to work in engineering CAD software like Solid Works/Inventor/Fusion360 Experience in the development of optical systems with holographic optical elements (HOE) Understanding of modern optical manufacturing technologies
