Undergraduate Engineering Intern at Ayar Labs
Emeryville, CA, US

As an intern at Ayar Labs, you will work alongside world-class engineers and scientists in the field of electronics and photonics. You will be part of a small, collaborative team working on the next generation of computing technologies. Projects will be chosen to match the experience and interests of each intern, and you will be mentored by a senior engineer.

Project areas include:
  • Automated test and measurement development
  • Characterization and analysis of high-speed photonics devices
  • Characterization and analysis of semiconductor lasers
  • Development of open-source Python-based design, simulation, and layout software
  • Mechanical fixture design for a variety of testing platforms
  • Specialty fiber component characterization and evaluation
The ideal candidate is a hands-on self-starter who is able to work both as part of a team and independently to develop and complete work, and who can effectively manage his or her own time to take projects to completion.
  • Actively pursuing an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Mechanical Engineering, or equivalent

At Ayar Labs we are lighting up electronics for a brighter future. With our deep ties to MIT and UC Berkeley, and our commitment to hiring the best engineers in photonics and electronics, joining our team gives you the opportunity to collaborate with brilliant people on challenging, paradigm-shifting work. Our optical I/O technology removes the bottlenecks created by today’s electrical I/O, making it possible to continue the computing system performance scaling that Moore’s Law enabled until now. We have a commitment to win big in the marketplace based on the strengths of our technology, and we approach everything with an eye to massive scalability. We believe that deep cross-collaboration between teams facilitated by honest, open debate is the best way to achieve big wins, leveraging our patent portfolio which promises products that deliver orders of magnitude improvements in latency, bandwidth density, and power consumption.
