Opto-Mechanical Engineer

Intelon Optics Inc.

Boston, MA


Intelon Optics is a rapidly-expanding world class technology and innovation company.

In this position you will be responsible for mechanical design and development of optical subassemblies for a medical diagnostic Brillouin spectroscopy system. You will perform simulation, optimization, and detailed analysis of components in SolidWorks to bring current clinically-tested research systems to final marketed product design.  Working closely with a team multidisciplinary engineers as well as vendors, you will use your strong product development experience to conceptualize product configurations and robust opto-mechanical designs for highly sensitive and tightly toleranced instrumentation.  Your hands-on skills will be an asset in both creating design specifications, mechanical drawings, assembly procedures, and testing system performance.

In this fast-paced startup environment you will need excellent interpersonal skills, communication/documentation, and ability to collaboratively and responsively, focusing on key priorities based on new information and product development timeline. You should have high energy and excitement to contribute to cutting-edge technology that improves medical care.

This role is based in our new state-of-the-art innovation center, located in Boston, MA.
