This client is really the tiger team of optical experts. I can't think of many environments that offer this kind of variety and exposure to the top design team in the field. They are an absolute playground for a dedicated technologist and very stable. Anyone that goes there will have huge visibility, and access to the the upper management team;­ it's a small company. The person’s contributions absolutely make a difference. Also, the bureaucracy that often slows the ability to make progress doesn't happen in this place. They work with all sectors of industry and are not dedicated to one line of products which gives them tremendous stability and profitability. As a recruiter, I have a good relationship with them and typically get fast turnaround on candidates. Note again on education ­ Masters is strongly preferred for this position
