PDK engineer (BE)

Luceda Photonics is looking for a PDK engineer to join our team in Belgium. 

We are looking for motivated people to join our team that develops, maintains, and supports over 25 process design kits (PDKs) for more than 15 photonic IC foundries. Our PDK engineers have the crucial task of enabling the design of photonic chips in specific photonic technologies by Luceda’s customers. In addition to continuous work with foundries and customers, Luceda has a range of projects to increase the simulation capabilities of photonic PDKs, to accurately predict the behavior of chips before they are manufactured. Adoption of new technologies and wavelength ranges driven by new applications is a focus point. 

We offer a varied job which includes interfacing with foundries and designers, as well as working with Luceda’s application engineering and software development teams. We are searching for a person with a solid background in photonics, a strong interest in software as well as an appetite for interactions with partners and customers.
