SiPhox Health is developing a revolutionary home testing platform for biomarkers linked with inflammation, hormones, and metabolic/cardiovascular health. 6 out of 10 Americans have a chronic disease, and our mission is to enable new direct-to-consumer health and wellness paradigms to address this crisis. Our chip-based solution combines biochemistry with state-of-the-art integrated photonics, electronics, and microfluidics.

We are looking for a skilled and motivated Silicon Photonics Engineer to join our team as we scale up and advance the photonics capabilities that power our system.

Key responsibilities:

  • Design and verification of novel photonic devices and circuits
  • Build and refine experimental setups for effectively coupling light into optical chips
  • Conduct detailed optical measurements and functional biosensing experiments to characterize the performance of photonic devices
  • Analyze data from wafer and chip characterization to assess and improve device performance
  • Document results and clearly present findings and insights to the team

Qualifications and Skills:

  • M.S. or Ph.D. in integrated photonics (Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, Optics, or related field)
  • Experience participating in or leading design/layout/characterization cycles of photonic devices with commercial foundries
  • Demonstrated track record of creative multidisciplinary design and hands-on problem solving to bring those designs to fruition
  • Expert with photonic characterization tools such as lasers, photodetectors, and data acquisition systems
  • Experience in photonics simulation software such as Tidy3D, Lumerical, or COMSOL Multiphysics
  • Experience in photonics layout software such as Luceda IPKISS, KLayout, gdsfactory, Cadence, or Synopsys
  • Proficient in Python or MATLAB
  • Familiarity with one or more is a plus: biosensors, microfluidics, optical chip packaging
