What You'll Do

As Optics Reliability/Component Engineer you'll be working with the senior reliability engineers to develop and qualify the next generation of Silicon Photonics technologies and products. Using your present knowledge, on the job training with senior staff and experience in Optics design and manufacturing processes you will evaluate new product designs for potential failure modes, develop qualification and reliability plans and work closely with Design and Process Development teams to ensure product reliability. Using reliability methodologies, you will design DOEs and stress tests to evaluate the reliability performance of the next generation designs and will also be responsible for qualification of the optical sub-assemblies and modules.

As the development progresses, you will be evaluating and quantifying the design reliability attributes for failures and reliability prediction. You will suggest mitigation plans for these failure modes and work with and lead cross-functional teams to resolve potential reliability issues. As part of this effort, you will also use your knowledge of material science analysis and data interpretation for SEM, EDX, CSAM, Cross-sectioning, X-rays and other techniques to evaluate and improve designs.

Who You'll Work With

You will be part of a global Technology & Quality organization with diverse subject matter expertise and will add to that knowledge base with your exceptional understanding of optical design and Reliability principles.
In your role, you will work with the Design and Process Engineering teams to evaluate, develop and implement new technologies and design ideas. You will also work with state of the art technology partners from the Optical & Semiconductor industries to drive product innovation and design for reliability. This role offers an excellent opportunity to develop the next generation of industry leading optical transceiver products.

Who You Are

You have basic knowledge in methodologies such as DFMEA and statistical tools used to evaluate process and Design reliability and to calculate time to failures and FIT rates. You have some exposure and experience using reliability analysis tools such as Reliasoft, JMP or Minitab is desired. Must be able to understand test methodologies and be able to execute a full module qualification plan with prior experience with test set-ups, fault finding and hardware debug.

You must be able to use SR332 Excel spreadsheet to calculate expected module piece part FITs or MTBF. Must have experience with environmental stress testing methods and understand shock and vib parameters, ESD testing methods, dust testing, mixed flowing gases testing and optical parameters for pass/fail evaluation of optical modules.

You have experience in optical component technologies, interconnect quality requirements and reliability test methodologies. SiPh packaging experience is a plus.

You have demonstrated ability to work with cross-functional teams with good communication, influencing and program management skills.
You thrive in challenging situations and are able to analyze a complex problem, assessing the risk and develop mitigation plans to resolve it.
In addition to your technical skills, you also have the ability to effectively rationalize decisions that impact revenue, customers, suppliers, and other Cisco teams

BS in relevant field
MS or PhD preferred
3+ years experience in the above areas.

Why Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference powering an inclusive future for all. 

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think were old (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but were also a software company. And a security company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do you cant put us in a box!

But Digital Transformation is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)

Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, give our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, bold steps, and take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a dedication to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

So, you have colorful hair? Dont care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? Thats cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!
