.Current Job Openings


Product Engineer:

CMC is seeking a team member in a crucial position of Lead Product Engineer. The ideal candidate is someone with “prototype to production” experience in designing and building compact electronics products that incorporate a display in space-constrained form factors similar to what you might find in portable electronics or automotive displays. The immediate need is in support of an augmented reality and heads-up display product scheduled to be in production by 2020.

This pivotal role synthesizes years of research into a market-ready product. We are seeking motivated talent that attacks tough challenges of design and implementation with enthusiasm. We utilize both dynamic, multidisciplinary team environments as well as individual effort to create the next generation of technology in advanced personal displays. A strong portfolio of designs and prototypes through to commercial products will allow the CMC team to visualize how your contributions will fit into our current efforts for breakthrough products.

This full-time position requires a minimum half-time commitment in Vermont with some travel through the year.

Education and Experience Requirement:

  • B.S., M.S., or PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Optical Systems Engineering.
  • Productization and commercialization experience including the market introduction phase

Optimal Job Requirement:

  • 5 to 10 years’ experience in development, testing and integration
  • Deep and focused development on compact electronic systems

Core Requirements:

  • Prototype design, assembly and troubleshooting
  • Miniaturization of products
  • New process and product development in one or more of the following:
    • Augmented Reality
    • Advanced Vision Systems
    • Information processing and displays
  • Flexible technical management on projects incorporating:
    • Optics
    • Software
    • Hardware
    • Ruggedization
  • Iterative prototype design and production management
  • Manufacturing development
  • Commercialization

Desired Skills or Additional Interests:

  • Fluid and agile problem-solving with ability to manifest complex concepts
  • Complementary skills encompassing in-depth technological knowledge, management of multi-tiered processes and budgetary commercialization strategies
  • Understanding of the display marketplace
  • Supply chain management and utilization

Embedded Processing:

CMC seeks a new team member with proficiency in C, C++ or C# to assist in the development of real-time processing for augmented reality and image processing on PC and embedded platforms. The work involves developing the necessary software interfaces to several information sources, developing real time rendering systems using OpenGL, creating user interfaces and developing system architecture for information routing.

Let us know if your skill set includes experience with development in:

  • OpenGL
  • 2D/3D graphical environments
  • Embedded database systems, such as SQLite
  • User interfaces, software or hardware
  • Optimization of code for reduced latency

Applicants should have demonstrated capability to work individually and as part of a small team. Creative Microsystems encourages applicants to include descriptions of personal projects and efforts that demonstrate these capabilities outside of the workplace as well.

Additionally, should your experience include interest or work with 3D graphics, neural processing implementation, USB interface design, Android development, FPGAs/VHDL or similar programming languages, please mention this in your letter of interest or interview.
