Test and Measurement Technician

Emberion is a leading-edge deep technology company that recently brought its first high-performance infrared camera products to the market. We are now looking for a test and measurement technician responsible for the optoelectronic characterisation of our devices.

About us

Emberion develops and produces revolutionary photo and thermal detectors and imagers for night vision, machine vision, spectroscopic and hyperspectral imaging applications. Our nanomaterials and electronics design know-how create a unique differentiation for our products.

Our primary products are cameras and image sensors for visible to shortwave infrared (VIS-SWIR) imaging. In addition, Emberion is developing other products, including MWIR, thermal and multispectral- band imaging technologies.

We employ more than 30 people at our locations in Cambridge, UK and Espoo, Finland. The team has years-long experience in both product creation and applied research. We collaborate closely with key local research organizations at both locations and are also a member of the European Graphene Flagship program. Emberion spun-out from Nokia Technologies as an independent SME in 2016.

About the role

As a measurement expert and member of the Cambridge team, you will have responsibility for implementing our optoelectronics test and measurement programme for production devices. You will measure at die-level the IR photodetectors made by the fabrication team and prepare feedback to drive continuous improvement. In particular, you will:

  • Be responsible for performing the optoelectronic characterisation of production devices, as well as R&D devices and prototypes when required.
  • Log test data and prepare reports on device and batch performance.
  • Design and implement measurement and calibration procedures.
  • Write/edit test scripts and be able to set up optoelectronic measurement systems.
  • Maintain and develop our measurement capabilities as necessary
  • Become a valued colleague by being a team player; able to take direction and to facilitate open and constructive communication.
  • The role is based in Cambridge, UK

About you

Ideally you will have experience of the optoelectronic characterisation of semiconductor devices. You will:

  1. Have knowledge of optoelectronic and electrical measurement equipment and testing techniques.
  2. Have used manual and automated probe stations to perform die-level device testing
  3. Be familiar with ESD and laser safety requirements
  4. Have experience of assembling, reconfiguring and calibrating measurement setups
  5. Possess solid understanding of electrical and electronic circuits, with ability to debug or build test circuits.
  6. Have excellent attention to detail and communication skills, both verbal and written.
  7. Be a team player with a can-do attitude.

Desirable Skills:

  1. Electro-optical testing and characterisation using a probe station, probe-cards and parameter analyser
  2. Ability to automate data acquisition and instrument control via LabView software would be beneficial.
  3. Skills in circuit board design using PCB design software would be beneficial.
  4. Knowledge of laboratory information management systems or other web-based systems would be advantageous.

This role is varied, and a great opportunity to broaden your skill base in a rapidly-growing new business.
