Coherent is a world leader of lasers and laser-based technology for materials processing, microelectronics, scientific, life sciences and medical customers. Coherent's Research Laser Systems business delivers products and technologies focused on pushing the frontiers of fundamental science and scientific research.

We are looking for a senior level mechanical engineer reporting to the Mechanical Engineering Manager in Coherent's Research Laser System business unit. This position will help support product development in Coherent's scientific ultrafast laser products. In this position you will work closely with many facets of the organization including Program Management, Optical Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Manufacturing, Customer Service, Marketing, NPI, etc. This position is ideally suited for inherently curious, hands-on engineers that can manage all aspects of product development (from concept to production support) from a position of technical leadership. The successful engineer will be challenged in developing highly competitive products working with the latest ultrafast and solid state technologies.


  • Design and develop precision opto-mechanical laser platforms, assemblies, sub-assemblies, components and packaging for ultrafast laser systems.

  • Responsible for all mechanical designs, drawings, and revision control from prototyping to final product.

  • Maintain "best in class" documentation including mechanical Bills of Materials and part number information control.

  • Drive mechanical engineering design reviews

  • Must be able to perform in a distributed, diverse cross-functional team environment.

  • Participate in product development teams as the primary mechanical design resource.

  • Lead projects that have a high mechanical and opto-mechanical design content.

  • Participate in weekly and bi-weekly status reporting to functional and project management. Clearly communicate project requirements and status

  • Facilitate optical design development by providing mechanical engineering input and support

  • Must have good engineering judgment and work independently making sound mechanical engineering decisions.

  • Provide technical leadership in the design of opto-mechanical assemblies, molded parts, machined parts and tooling.

  • Set design standards for the tolerancing, CAD drawing formats, and document control of CAD drawings.

  • Qualify and act as an engineering liaison to key outside vendors (machine shops, PCB houses, etc.)

  • Learn about existing products and develop technical expertise

  • Act as a point of contact with Production on the transfer of new mechanical designs to manufacturing for methods, and manufacturing specific tooling

  • Perform first article assembly and design verification testing.

  • Design and develop product while keeping manufacturability, cost, reliability and quality in mind.

  • Significant emphasis on design requiring innovative, intuitive, creative problem solving based on sound mechanical principles and understanding of materials, heat flow, vibration, fluid dynamics, etc.

  • Support design concepts with hand calculations, FEA, etc.

  • Investigate, create, and/or develop solutions that will improve design solutions or reduce cost

  • Understand and follow strict safety procedures
