Job title

Technology Advisor


Eindhoven HTC, The Netherlands


40 hours

Are you thrilled about Photonics? Are you able to drive this technology forward and conquer the dark side of the business in the process?  If yes, we need you, and we promise to bring you the right audience.

For the expansion of our team we are hiring a Technology Advisor.

You will become the linking pin in translating our technology capabilities in integrated photonics towards our customers. The other way around, you sense the true needs of our customers and challenge the R&D team and its engineers. You are trusted by pioneers and sceptics alike. If we are facing a gap between customer needs and R&D capabilities, you are the one who is expected to challenge the status quo.

Although you primarily hover above the process, you dive in when needed. This results in a wide variety of tasks, from supporting our R&D Engineers to analysing our vertical engineering up to critically reflecting our customers’ strategic roadmaps.


We are looking for a person with / who is:

  • In-depth knowledge about the semiconductor industry, photonics, and PICs is an absolute must, a broader scope is a plus.
  • At least 7 years of professional work experience as senior, leader, manager, or professor.
  • An ambassador for photonics and its industry, convincing by your own belief.
  • Strong communicator, self-secure but also able to connect people and win their trust and respect.
  • Solid analytical skills and creative thinking will help you make critical decisions.
  • An Influencer and a winner. No is not an answer, you will continue until we have found a suitable solution for all.
