KLA is looking for an Optical Engineering (OE) Director in our RAPID Engineering Group.  The Optics Director will lead a group of optics design professionals responsible for proposing, detailing, and testing new optical designs and technologies for the next generation photomask inspection systems.  This roll often receives assignments in the form of high level business and product objectives. The manager should lead the team to map these objectives into optical subsystem requirements and create a detailed development plan under budget and schedule constraints. It is also the OE manager’s responsibility to closely track the execution of the development plan and take necessary actions when actual progress deviates from the plan.

This person will set a vision, own or actively participate in all critical optical system design reviews, interface with other groups (systems, ME, EE, and others) and will coach his/her group members in their professional growth. He/ she will provide leadership by investigating different design options and finding the best option by evaluating tolerances, light budgets, costs, schedule, and other trade-offs.
