Acacia Communications, a leader in disruptive optical and coherent technology, is looking for a Senior Millimeter Wave Engineer. The candidate will be a key member in a small, dynamic IC Design team that develops millimeter-wave circuits for Acacias silicon photonics-based optical transponders.  The candidate will co-architect, design, layout, measure and productize silicon-based, 30+Gb/s ICs.  This Position can work from a remote location.

Essential Responsibilities:

        Work with the analog team and PIC designers to co-architect electro-optic TX and RX IC solutions to meet transponder-level specifications

        Schematic-design, layout and laboratory-characterization of mm-wave ICs

        Set and track IC-project, internal-DVT, qualification and production-test schedules

        Work with contract manufacturers manage qualification and high-volume production-testing of ICs

Minimum Qualifications, Experience, Skills, Education and Certifications:

        Typically requires a BSEE degree and 9 years of experience or an MS degree and 6 years of experience or a PhD and 3 years of experience.

        Expertise in RF/Millimeter-wave CMOS/SiGe-BiCMOS IC design

        Design, simulation and measurement (at wafer-level) of 15+ Gb/s ICs including but not limited to:

o   Linear amplifiers/drivers

o   Transimpedance amplifiers

o   AGC circuits

o   Linear equalizers


        Collaborative team player who can work independently

        High-frequency/mm-wave layout experience a plus:

Highly Desired Skills:

        Direct experience with coherent optical communications links as well as electrical transceiver applications including backplane and cable communications
