We are looking for a skilled, hands-on engineer to join our R&D team with the explicit aim to help developing new markets.

The Position 

You will be running several mini-projects in parallel at any one time for developing advanced laser micromachining processes and/or related hardware. These will aim to prove the initial technical feasibility of new ideas aiming for growth into new potential laser micromachining markets. You will be expected to work with state-of-the-art DPSS lasers together with advanced motion control systems.

Ideally, you will have industrial experience of working with Lasers/Optics and preferably laser processing within a laser manufacturer or laser system integrator environment. The valuable outcome of your early stage work will be further validated and progressed to higher technology readiness level by other technical teams within Oxford Lasers.
