Silicon-Photonics Designer for space applications (Junior/Senior)

We seek candidates with passion for science and engineering to join our team with the ambition to develop photonic integrated circuits (PICs) in the context of satellite communications.

The role requires a knowledge track crossing the fundamentals of photonic technology and optical communications with an awareness of microelectronics basics and integrated circuit design development methodologies.

Matching profiles could be Ph.D or Master’s holders,  ideally followed by relevant industry or academic/research roles.

With a primary focus on the fields of photonics/optoelectronics, it would be highly appreciated if potential candidates have been exposed to:

  • System modeling with mathematical tools or programming languages.
  • Software for modeling passive/active photonic waveguide components and circuits (modulators, filters, couplers, detectors) .
  • Integrated circuit design flows for Simulation/Layout/Verification.
  • Hardware specification/characterization for space applications.
  • Technical communication/documentation.

Proven effectiveness in acquiring new skills and a strong-problem solving mindset, will be the key factor for candidates without extensive relevant experience.


The core work effort involves research and development with the goal of fabrication of photonic integrated circuits (PICs) for space environments.

In relation with our foundry partners, the candidate will lead the establishment of an industrial tool-flow for design and benefit from in-house and foundry training to pursue fabrication. A small availability to travel might be required for meetings or characterization campaigns.

Taking part in a dynamic workplace environment the ideal candidate possesses the spirit to combine technical innovation with the vision of product development and take responsibility to lead and contribute in various aspects of a growing business.

We offer:

An opportunity to work with cutting-edge technology that will define global communications in the next decades. A knowledge-intensive environment with focus on innovation, where pressing engineering problems will be solved, and ideas will materialize into hardware.

We value engineering excellence and will compensate it according to experience.

We strive to provide a friendly, diffused atmosphere where people can flourish and achieve life balance.

We are located in the “Lefkippos” Technology Park, within the campus of NCSR “Demokritos” in Agia Paraskeyi.
