Element Six, part of De Beers Group, is a global leader in the design, development and production of synthetic diamond and tungsten carbide supermaterials.
With research and development facilities and manufacturing sites in the UK, Ireland, Germany, South Africa and the US, we have been pushing the boundaries of synthetic diamond innovation for more than 60 years. We utilise the extreme properties of synthetic diamond to open up new possibilities in exciting areas such as quantum optics, acoustics and thermal conductivity.
Our success comes from building strong, collaborative relationships, both internally in our extraordinary teams, and externally with our customers. We strive to deliver extreme performance and we seek talented, ambitious people who will thrive in an environment that fosters individuality, inclusivity, innovation and creativity.
We offer an exciting and varied career, with opportunities to work in various locations and teams, and across different functions and projects.
If you like the idea of an exciting variety of work in a diverse global team, then we want you to get in touch.
The successful candidate will be an outstanding, hands-on engineer with an in-depth material science knowledge with focus on optical and thermal properties reporting to the Applications Engineering Manager, as part of a team tasked with development of new applications for CVD diamond in Santa Clara, CA.
The role involves supporting the sales and marketing team to provide innovative solutions to customers in applications requiring extreme optical performance and thermal management as well as generating costing, BOM and routing worksheets for such products. In this role you will often interface directly with customers’ engineering and production teams to provide diamond based solution addressing novel and extreme applications in EUV photolithography, laser processing, optical spectroscopy and high power density thermal management.
The role often involves management of technical projects from conception to completion. Internally the successful candidate will work with Element Six’s operations teams to qualify original ideas and prototypes through an NPI qualification process into manufacture-able products.
Post pandemic, the candidate will need to commit to traveling to the UK (Ascot and Harwell) facilities for special orientation.
While a documented theoretical and technical skill set is important, equal emphasis will be put on personal abilities in terms of proactive team player, communication and ability to think outside the box.
