Job description

Metrology software orchestrates the behaviour of powerful mechatronic modules, so that together they achieve an extraordinary combination of speed and accuracy. For example, one such module (a wafer stage), accelerates faster than a fighter jet to enable the machine to position a silicon wafer in less than a second, with nanometer accuracy! As well as using metrology systems to position wafers, they also uses metrology systems to measure and compensate for sub-nanometer inaccuracies that inevitably creep in due to material imperfections, temperature fluctuations, and/or atmospheric pressure changes. To achieve such challenging results, the best metrology systems ever imagined are required.

Solutions of the Metrology Functional Group are implemented in software by the Metrology Software Department. Your role is to design high-quality software, allowing fast and efficient delivery of complex metrology functions. The main tasks & responsibilities are:

  • Collaborate with other software engineers to design and implement features
  • Quickly produce well-organized, optimized, and documented source code in C++
  • Create and document software tools required by architects or other developers
  • Debug existing source code and polish feature sets
  • Contribute to technical design documentation
  • Attention to detail is essential and all tasks must be carried out to the highest standard
