MEMS Expert (Principal Engineer Level)

Huawei Technologies Research & Development Belgium NV is a center of excellence for silicon photonics and for MEMS. Huawei is the global No.2 telecom solution provider and uses approximately one sixth of all photonics components produced in the world.

Huawei aims to significantly reduce the cost of these components by investing aggressively in silicon photonics and MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) research and development and implementing solutions based on these technologies. The team at Huawei R&D Belgium (Caliopa) is at the heart of this. Already in production at our foundries, we are looking to strengthen our team with a MEMS Expert.

Main Responsibilities:

  • Electro-mechanical design of MEMS devices for concept through to production for applications in Optical Communications and Consumer Products
  • Work collaboratively with other parts of the extended MEMS team in Huawei and at external partners

Requirements & Qualifications:

  • A degree in an Engineering or Physical Sciences
    • Masters and/or PhD qualification or equivalent additional experience is preferred
  • Minimum of 10 years post-degree MEMS design experience (PhD counts as 1.5 years maximum)
    • At least 3 years of experience at principal level or equivalent is essential
    • At least 5 years hands-on experience in MEMS design is an advantage
    • Experience of MEMS design in optical (e.g. micromirror), acoustic and/or inertial (e.g. gyroscope) products is an advantage
    • Industrial experience or experience of leading commercial contracts with industry is essential
  • Sound grasp of MEMS transduction and associated MEMS process, test and reliability principles
    • Extensive experience of electrostatic actuation is essential
    • Experience of piezoelectric and electromagnetic actuation is an advantage
    • A sound knowledge of enhancing and verifying MEMS reliability is desirable
  • Proven track record in developing innovative MEMS designs
    • A track record of designs transitioning to production is an advantage
    • Strong awareness of Intellectual Property is desirable
  • Advanced skills in simulation using leading CAD design packages for MEMS
    • Extensive experience of finite element MEMS device simulation
      • expertise in using COMSOL Multiphysics is an advantage
    • Expertise in system level simulation with reduced order models and linking to other simulation packages is an advantage (e.g. using Python)
    • Experience of working with a captive industrial or commercial MEMS foundry is essential
  • Strong analytical skills with an ability to work effectively both independently and with other parts of the extended team in Europe and China
    • Extensive experience of developing analytical models is essential
    • Ability to advise on the potential impact of process and packaging design choices on MEMS performance and reliability is important
    • Experience of defining MEMS device test regimes and interpreting the results is desirable
  • Language
    • Fluent in English (written and spoken).
      • Dutch or Chinese language knowledge is a plus
  • Attitude
    • Strong team player
    • Excellent written and oral communication skills
    • Eye for detail but also able to take high-level perspective when appropriate
    • Organized, structured worker
    • Continuous improvement spirit

Huawei Technologies R&D Belgium NV is headquartered in Belgium and this role is based in the vibrant city of Ghent, however, it is likely that the role will involve some international travel (10-20%).

Your application will be evaluated by the HR department of Huawei R&D Sites in Belgium and the Netherlands itself. For any additional feedback regarding your application, we kindly refer you to the Huawei R&D Sites in Belgium and the Netherlands HR department.
