Shape the digital future of ZEISS in the Global Algorithms & Software Semiconductor Mask Solutions team!

Your sophisticated algorithms evaluate enormous amounts of image data in a highly efficient manner. Only in this way we enable the performance of our complex photomask systems – the essential building block to manufacture defect-free microchips.

Your Role

Our high-tech measurement systems for semiconductor lithography are characterized by extreme demands on measurement performance. This performance is essentially achieved by optical components at the highest level. Nevertheless, remaining manufacturing tolerances lead to almost insurmountable accuracy limits. Breaking through these limits using algorithms is your new challenge at ZEISS.

You will architect and implement highly accurate optical simulation models in expert teams. Your tasks will range from conceptual design to implementation and performance evaluation. Optical product performance is your success. You continuously expand your network within the company and are in close contact with our customers.

Your innovation-driven mindset allows you to keep an eye on the latest technical developments and publications. You and your colleagues thus create the conditions for excellence.

Your Profile

  • excellent in optical simulations and with optics design experience

  • very good experience in system specifications and error-budgeting

  • strong programming experience with: Scientific Python, preferably also with parallel computing e.g. cloud technologies

  • in depth knowledge of optical manufacturing processes

  • great passion to successfully solve complex and difficult problems independently and in teams
