Intelon Optics is a rapidly-expanding world class technology and innovation company.
In this position you will be responsible for design and development of laser beam delivery components and subassemblies for a medical diagnostic Brillouin spectroscopy system. You will perform simulation, optimization, detailed analysis of optical layouts in Zemax 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, optical layouts, 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.
Work with internal teams to gather requirements and develop strategies with suppliers to manufacture and implement optical systems
Design, develop, analyze, and optimize optical systems using Zemax simulation software
Verify optical system performance with benchtop testing.
Maintain controlled documentation electronic and paper files under Quality System.
Collaborate in a multidisciplinary environment with other engineers and subject matter experts in the areas of optical engineering, mechanical engineering, optical and mechanical component fabrication, electronics design, micro-electronics assembly and opto-mechanical assembly. Managing interactions with internal / external partners and suppliers
Competitive salary and benefits with company incentive plan.
Relocation assistance, as applicable.

About Intelon Optics Inc
Intelon Optics is a medical device company focusing on the development and commercialization of the Brillouin Optical Scanner System (BOSS™), a technology that enables next-generation point-by-point biomechanical imaging of eye structures, extending from the cornea to the posterior part of the globe.
BOSS™ brings a wide range of novel diagnostic and surgical solutions to empower eye care professionals with high-level decision making confidence and control based on biomechanical tissue properties of the eye.
The biomechanics - or biomechanical properties - are primary and critical factors directly impacting the functionality of the eye as a refractive system. They affect functional responses of the cornea and the crystalline lens to light and greatly impact vision.
The company’s commercial focus begins with refractive surgery, and extends to other diagnostic and surgical areas in eye care. The company’s products will bring novel and unique solutions to allow deterministic surgical outcomes, control of treatment results, and a high level of decision-making confidence to clinicians and surgeons based on biomechanical tissue properties relevant to refractive error correction.
To date, BOSS™ is the only technology allowing in-vivo, local, and direct measurement of the stress-strain relationship of ocular tissues influencing the refractive performance of the eye.
We plan to eventually offer our technology solution to a broad range of customers, ranging from research institutions to health care providers in a multitude of international markets, and as OEM solutions to multi-national corporations.
We are seeking highly skilled, motivated, and creative individuals to help pioneer and realize our global vision.
