What You'll Do

As a Senior Silicon Photonic Packaging Product Engineer, you'll be part of Cisco's multi-functional Silicon Photonics team that will be poised to lead the 100G-market transition and is well positioned to drive growth through innovation for Next Generation of product-lines. Through empowerment, you will play a meaningful role in a dynamic work environment to disrupt and influence the innovation of next generation silicon photonics wafer and chip level packaging and assembly designs.

Responsibilities include the following:

  • You will be responsible for taking Silicon Photonics wafer & chip level packaging and assembly product from NPI to HVM release through an OSAT partner.
  • You will work in collaboration with Engineering and Technology & Quality teams to set SYL/SBL & other statistical methods to characterize and optimize qualified optical packaging assembly processes, make decisions on creative changes to improve yields and product quality
  • You'll work in cooperation with Technology & Quality team to support new OSAT supplier engagement and introduction of new optical packaging product technology
  • You will drive the characterization of NPI product performances and yield including benchmark correlation to meet and/or exceed product cost targets
  • You will work in cooperation with Engineering and Technology & Quality teams to drive DFx for optical packaging design and assembly.
  • You have experience in creating designed experiments to map device performance as a function of epitaxial structure and fabrication parameter space
  • You will be responsible for reviewing and monitoring ETest/WAT data to actively drive resolution to critical yield issues
  • You will team up with Design & Test Engineering teams to stabilize and improve product screening at wafer-probe and package level testing.

Who You'll Work With

Product Operations is the organization that enables and accelerates innovation to craft an unrivaled customer experience & competitive advantage for Cisco through end-to-end Operations leadership and Product Lifecycle Management. In this role, you will be a key Product Operations team member specifically supporting the Transceiver Module Group

You will be a member of the product engineering team that partners with a multi-functional team of engineers (Design, Technology & Quality, Test, and OSAT's) to develop, qualify, and release silicon photonics wafer & chip level packaging product to manufacturing.

Who You Are

You're a self-motivated, action and result oriented strong technical leader who encourages creativity and new ways of thinking to deliver creative solutions. You thrive to earn the trust of partners and team members by making impactful decisions to deliver significant result.

Minimum Requirements:
