WHO IS VEECO?
Making a Material Difference is at the core of our DNA. For more
than 30 years, we have developed differentiated technologies and
built expertise and know-how that has enabled world-changing
devices such as LED lighting, data storage, advanced computing and
mobile devices to reach industrial scale. We help customers
overcome technical and cost barriers that make it possible to
convert novel materials into high-yielding device performance at
production volumes. Our customers produce the newest, fastest,
smallest, and most efficient electronic components used in devices
to help deliver a better world.
We serve the semiconductor and emerging high-growth markets. Our
process equipment and technology are used to manufacture advanced
semiconductors, LEDs, displays, photonics, VCSELs, power
electronics, compound semiconductors, hard disk drives, MEMS and
Veeco's Somerset location is looking for a technically competent,

highly visible technical leadership role for developing critical
components in the MOCVD process chamber. This role will work with
our team to conceptualize designs for MOCVD technology
* Develop and utilize computer models of MOCVD reactors and
processes using commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
packages to predict reactor performance during the design stage of
next-generation product lines and for continuous improvement of the
* Develop the technical roadmap for MOCVD components, work with
cross-functional problem-solving teams using structured methods
such as 8D, FMEA, and model-based problem solving.
* Develop specifications, direct design, develop prototypes, and
support execution of functional tests to rapidly transfer
technologies to production and manufacturing groups.
* Coordinate and supervise modeling efforts by consulting partners
to meet the goals of development projects.
* Participate in performance analysis of critical components in the
field and regularly interact with field teams and customers to
