Job Description:

Keysight is the world's leading electronic measurement company, helping scientists and engineers address their toughest technical challenges with confidence through innovations in wireless, modular, and software solutions. Our employees leverage their insight and passion to deliver measurement solutions in wireless communications, aerospace and defense, and semiconductor markets with world-class platforms, software and consistent measurement science.

This job will be part of the Keysight Technology Organization, which helps Keysight be first to market, focusing on top opportunities and market trends that address unmet needs.

Job Description

Join an extremely talented and multi-disciplinary team in Keysight Laboratories uniquely chartered with inventing and developing breakthrough electronic and optical measurement technologies. As a member of Keysight Technologies' central research organization, you'll work with a team of experts in fields ranging from photonics and microwaves to FPGA design and software engineering. You'll see the results of your research in, for example, the latest next-generation high-speed oscilloscopes, optical spectrum analyzers, and even future test and measurement solution to be defined by you.
Team members are typically assigned to one of a handful of applied research projects in our research portfolio—each aimed at providing breakthrough technologies for Keysight. These projects can be self-initiated by members of our team (perhaps you!) or by request from Keysight's business units. Our role in the central research laboratory is to invent, develop, and validate these breakthrough technologies, and if they prove successful, to assist in their commercialization by Keysight's businesses.
As a member of the team, your expertise will be applied in a variety of ways and on a variety of projects. You'll be asked to:
- Identify photonics technology trends and how they can best be harnessed for Keysight
- Invent new measurement concepts with the potential to significantly impact Keysight's businesses
- Implement these innovative concepts in actual hardware and software to prove feasibility
- Work with Keysight's businesses to transfer the technology into commercial products.
Keysight foresees photonic integration playing an important role in future test and measurement technologies. With your skills and experience and a position in Keysight Labs, you will contribute directly to the revolution in photonic integration and drive its application into new measurement solutions.
To foster innovation, this position requires close collaboration with other team members. Consequently, this job must be performed from our offices in Santa Clara, California.
