Optical-Electrical Engineer

If you enjoy the challenges that come along with research, development and delivery of state-of-the-art technology to Commercial and Government industry then L3 PHOTONICS is your ideal work environment. Our mission is to provide new and exciting solutions in our four business areas of Free-Space Optics, Fiber Optics, Metrology and Machine Vision Automation.

L3 PHOTONICS is located in the Southern California seaside resort community of Carlsbad, CA. We enjoy some of the best weather in the contiguous United States with a semi-arid Mediterranean climate and outdoor activities all year round. Carlsbad is best known for its surfing, flower fields, up-scale resorts and access to the mountains for hiking and skiing. We offer a competitive benefits package and a 9/80 work schedule.

We currently have an opening for an Optical-Electrical Engineer who enjoys researching, developing and delivering new high performance system solutions for telecommunication, sensing, medical and test instrumentation applications. If you enjoy working with optical hardware such as Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFAs), Optical Add/Drop Multiplexers (OADMs), Interferometers, Polarization Controllers and Fiber Bragg Gratings this is the ideal work environment. The chosen candidate will be responsible for breadingboarding concepts, developing technology and delivering high performance, high reliability, miniaturized systems.
