Senior Optical Designer

Sioux Technologies is a specialist development partner for customers in the high-tech industry active in various markets like semiconductor, medical and analytical. Our client base includes multinationals like ASML, Philips and Thermo Fisher, but also medium sized companies and start/ scale-ups.

In our projects, we have regularly achieved the impossible. With a close team of enthusiastic specialists in physics, software, electronics, mechatronics, mechanics and mathematics we are often working on the boundaries of what technically is possible.

Do you have a master's degree in physics? Do you have extensive experience in optical design? Are you the person who just goes a step further? Do you like to get the best out of yourself and others? Are you looking for a versatile job in an organization with a personal working atmosphere? Become Senior Optical Designer at Sioux in Nuenen

“Are you looking for a diversified job in which you work on many different projects and in which your contributions make the difference? Do you want to push technical boundaries in an inspiring multidisciplinary environment as a physicist with a strong optical background? Then this is your chance!”

Our position

Optics plays a central role in many Sioux projects, therefore, we are looking for an experienced optical designer who can guide the entire product creation process from concept phase to industrialization. You work on one or more projects at the same time and projects can take up to two years. As a senior you translate the wishes of the customer into system requirements. You play an important role in the choice of concept solutions: you know which solutions already exist, but you are also able to come up with new concepts if necessary. You convert these concepts into designs using optical design tools like Zemax.
In this, you already take into account the manufacturability and maintainability of the product. You make functional models and test setups and if necessary, you are not afraid to pick up a screwdriver. At the end of the project you are responsible for the verification of the design and the transfer to production.

With some regularity, also non-optical physics issues occure and your knowledge as a broadly educated physicist is needed. As a senior, you are a Jake of all trades and you have excellent communication skills, both with internal stakeholders but also towards customers and suppliers. With your experience, you help to further expand the Physics & Optics group. In the design process, you guide colleagues from other fields to further develop and realize your design. You are also able to guide junior engineers in their projects and coach them to further develop their (technical) talents.

This is what we're looking for

Sioux is looking for a new colleague in the group Physics & Optics who has:
  • a completed academic degree (or preferably a PhD) in physics
  • extensive experience in the design of optical systems and products, preferably for machine construction as well as series production
  • experience in bringing optical systems towards production
  • up-to-date knowledge of optical design
  • a creative mind that can think beyond the usual solutions and find the best solutions for our customers
  • a sound physical knowledge and understanding, also outside the field of optics
  • a broad view of technology, with an eye on improvements in quality and working methods
  • a customer and solution-oriented approach
  • a proactive and enterprising attitude
  • excellent communication skills
  • the will to continuously learn and develop yourself

This is Sioux

Having fun at and after work is important within our employership. Besides the content of the work, you will find the corporate culture an important criterion:
  • you thrive in a company where physics, mechatronics, mechanics, electronics and software are the core competences, a company where your colleagues speak the same language and are important sources of knowledge
  • you get inspiration from the wide range of projects for very diverse customers and markets, while looking for synergy between the disciplines
  • you think it is important that you are respected as a person and that making profit is not the sole objective of the company
  • you are prepared to go the extra mile in an environment where you are supported and appreciated by your colleagues
  • you attach great importance to the possibilities for personal and professional development
