Digital Holography – Photonics Design Expert

Our mission is to enable display manufacturers and content creators to disrupt the visualization market with immersive ultra-high resolution, life-like, true holographic displays. With the Swave team you will create a new world where holographic displays give everyone the power to visualize the impossible, collaborate and accomplish more.

Role and responsibilities:

  • Build models and layouts to fabricate our custom photonic unit cell designs and test structures
  • Verify model performance using finite difference time domain (FDTD) or similar
  • Compare the results of the simulations with experimental data to improve future device designs
  • Build and characterize experimental and tests setups in the company optical lab
  • Using your expertise in photonics to identify and explore additional high-value targets for our development
  • Collaborate with the system design and algorithms teams


  • Master / PhD in Physics or EE
  • Expert knowledge of integrated optics, optoelectronic device physics
  • 5+ years experience designing and developing state of the art photonic devices
  • 2+ years of industry experience related to design, fabrication, and testing of integrated photonic components
  • Deep understanding of CMOS manufacturing process and its constraints on the design of photonic devices
  • Experience developing testing capability from the ground up is a strong plus
  • Experience with Lumerical, Comsol, Calibre, Virtuoso is a strong plus
  • Hand-on, pragmatic approach to solving complex challenges is a strong plus
  • Capability to work in a fast-paced startup environment
