You will be working at the core modules of our technology: on their architecture, (re)design, optimization, controller tuning, issue solving and assuring the modules can be made/integrated/assessed without your presence using e.g. tools and scripts. For each, our considerations are centered around dynamics and accuracy.

Don’t be scared when you hear about our angstroms, we’ve got nanometer and micrometer challenges as well – and the first generation technology has already been proven. Now we need our growing team to industrialize our tech, designs, scripts, procedures, organization and come up with smart solutions to issues – while developing the newer generations of machines and added features.

This job requires a broad range of technical skills, as a focal point between Mechanical Engineering, Electronics, Software, Metrology and Physics.
