  • Interact with external partners including both academic and customer touch points to ensure successful knowledge and prototype sharing, and that the prototypes/ offerings are meeting needs and real-world challenges in the field
  • Liaise with internal and external stakeholders to support product marketing initiatives, while keeping up to date with the latest relevant trends/standards/regulations/etc. out there in the market

  • Previous work with Optics/Imaging/Photonics and Digital/Electronic Systems
  • Demonstrable background in Research/similar R&D roles, and ability to translate research results for technical and non-technical personnel
