Senior Camera Systems Engineer
Amazon Lab126 is an inventive research and development company that designs and engineers high-profile consumer electronics. Lab126 began in 2004 as a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc., originally creating the best-selling Kindle family of products. Since then, we have produced groundbreaking devices like Fire tablets, Fire TV and Amazon Echo. What will you help us create?
As key part of the camera team, this person will be driving the camera specification, camera test development, manufacturing process (ACF, Flip Chip, automatic soldering, Chip On Board, Housing Attach) development and implementations for camera modules. Candidate will be heavily involved in the camera module design activities for manufacturing.
Develop core intellectual properties as well as implementations in imaging area such as image quality tuning, calibration, improvements on auto-exposure, auto-white balance, auto-focs. Involved in defining imaging platform and roadmap.
The candidate will be responsible to define Front of Line manufacturing processes, will manage contract manufacturers to improve FOL processes for quality and yield. The candidate will suggest DFM improvements for module design and drive technical and operational issues related to manufacturing and assembly process.
The candidate will be responsible for all imaging aspects of camera modules and can independently design and implement imaging algorithms, work with early prototypes of imaging systems. The candidate should also be working closely with the FW team to implement image quality tuning and new imaging algorithms such as auto-focus, auto-white balance, auto-exposure, high dynamic range, still and video image stabilization, face tracking. The candidate will define proper firmware hooks for image quality tuning and calibration and develop advanced calibration techniques for manufacturing.
The candidate need to be strong effective communicator for both spoken and written communications and needs to be independent, highly motivated individual.
Other responsibilities include:
Drive front of the line process of camera module manufacturing.
Develop system architectures.
Generate electronic schematics.
Drive end of line manufacturing and testing processes for camera modules. Develop EOL test plans. Define manufacturing line calibration methodology and drive its implementation.
Contribute to a multi-disciplinary team.
