The Electrical Packaging Engineer will design, model, and develop packaging solutions for Rockley Photonics  Silicon Photonics platform.  The role requires strong teamwork with a multi-disciplinary team of engineers.


*This list is not all inclusive. Additional duties will be assigned as needed.


  • Electrical design for signal integrity, power delivery, and reliability. Collaborate with layout engineers to tape out design. Ability to do own layout a plus
  • Use FEA & Spice to optimize the performance of electrical interconnect starting from III-V devices, through PICs, to ASICs
  • Collaborate with the PIC, ASIC, process, and packaging engineers to ensure optimal electrical design can meet system requirement and is within process tolerance
  • Perform design failure mode and effect analysis (DFMEA) to understand contributions toward signal loss and performance degradation from each interconnect structure
  • Design of experiments (DOE) and develop test plans to validate designs
  • Design evaluation boards with layout engineers to implement DOE test plan
  • Collaborate with test engineers & technicians to correlate design & simulation vs measurement
  • Participate in FA efforts to understand electrical implication to known failures. Assess risk level based on FA results.


  • PhD in Electrical Engineering preferred, or MS with at least 3 years of relevant experience
  • Proficiency in Ansys HFSS, ADS, or similar software strongly recommended
  • Proficiency in reviewing PCB, package, and IC level electrical layout strongly recommended
  • Experience in electrical testing at device and package level strongly recommend. RF testing experience is a big plus, but not required
  • 2.5D and 3D metal interconnect high speed design and simulation experience preferred
  • Knowledge of integrated photonics design and process strongly recommended, but not required
  • Communicates effectively and candidly. Provides and seeks feedback. Articulates clearly and listens actively.
  • Demonstrates strong character, builds partnerships and takes personal responsibility for their own development.  Demonstrates qualities such as motivation, inspiration, innovation, and trust.
