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 do we as a team 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 requirements on measurement performance and a high level of automated image evaluation. Robustly and efficiently processing large amounts of data with cutting-edge algorithms comes with many challenges but also generates high value for our customers. Your role is it to bring such solutions into our product.

You will develop highly accurate algorithms for image processing of scanning electron microscopes (SEM) in an interdisciplinary team of experts. Your tasks will range from conceptual design and state-of-the-art-analysis over implementation and performance evaluation to product maturity. Within an agile team, you turn ideas and data into digital products.

Your innovation-driven mindset allows you to keep an eye on the latest technical developments and publications. You are continuously expanding your network within the company and our research partners. You and your colleagues thus create the conditions for excellence.
