About your job as Image Sensor Production & Quality Engineer

You are the central responsible for manufacturing & assembly of our CMOS image sensors during the complete product life-cycle – from project intake until delivery of the qualified product to our customer.
This means:
  • Before the project start, you provide your expert input on prototyping and productization into the project intake process
  • During the design phase of the image sensor you interact with the internal design and test teams as responsible for the package design, the assembly process and the production test
  • In the prototype phase, you organize the timely procurement of prototypes & test structures
  • In the production phase you organize the supply chain from wafer procurement to final tested product delivered at the customer
  • You interact with the customer to make sure that the delivered products are correlated with the customer s application
  • You are responsible for the appropriate aftercare and maintenance services
You work with a continuous focus on in-time delivery with predictable & reproducible quality and cost targets. This drives you to define, organize and mature the characterization & production flow with an innovative mindset, based on your expert theoretical and hands-on understanding of the latest technologies involved in the design and supply of custom-build high-end image sensors.
You have a natural tendency to highly organize your dynamic priorities in the areas of:
  • Supplier management to ensure long-lasting relations with foundries, assembly houses, key component & test equipment suppliers
  • Automated product life-cycle management using Enterprise Resource Planning system to simplify complex links in logistic & financial processes
  • Technical product issue management, including systematic root-cause analysis, statistical analysis of test results, yield analysis in co-operation with design & test teams in the lab, as well as with foundries & suppliers to mitigate and put error-avoidance mechanisms in place
  • Technical documentation management to log and learn, while reporting without overhead
You balance managerial aspects with continuous updates of your technical savvy in the areas of:
  • Image sensor package design: technology, materials, mechanics, …
  • Execution of product qualification testing, including visual inspection, environmental testing, radiation testing
You target to become our assembly and product specialist and have the opportunity to grow according to your capacities. Along with Caeleste s business, you can mature your technical and managerial leadership. We welcome experience, but are also open to hire a talented fresh graduate with high potential. You operate within a multi-disciplinary team of system & test engineers – a mix of junior and senior experts. Mutual support is the daily routine in the company.
