The R&D department (22 people) is divided into a more research-oriented part (IRDUAC) and a product development-oriented part (ECFEEM department – Engineering and Functional Compliances, Electronics, Electrics, Mechanics).

  • The implementation of various diamond characterization services for external customers;
  • The after-sales service of the products sold
  • Technical support for sales.

The department ECFEEM interacts with:

  • The company’s Research Department (IRDUAC), from which it receives prototypes or application demonstrators whose performance has been validated beforehand, but whose optimization for the marketing of a product has not been pushed forward (cost, form factor, energy consumption, low-level software and application layers, elegance of design, etc.)
  • The company’s Marketing department, with which it defines the functional specifications of products and services;
  • The Sourcing department, responsible for the procurement, logistics and production of products;
  • The Sales department for sales support (pre-sales and after-sales).



We are looking for a Department Manager, with an engineering background, with significant experience as an Engineering Manager, integrating the following:

  • Value Analysis;
  • Understanding of the user’s needs;
  • In-depth knowledge of electronics, mechanics and embedded software (low layers, networks and applications);
  • Experience in team management for the design and development of electro-technical/optronic products;
  • Experience in the definition and implementation of quality standards;
  • Knowledge of development frameworks and traditional quality models (V and W cycle, agile methods, ISO9001, CMMi, etc.);
  • Experience in industrialization and manufacturing of such products;
  • Certifications and regulatory constraints;
  • Advanced management of complex projects;
  • Experience in pre-sales and after-sales.


We are looking for an organized, motivated, curious, rigorous, creative person, capable of evolving in a multidisciplinary and fast-growing environment. A good level of English is essential. Industrial experience and/or experience in the industrialization of high-tech products is desirable. International experience is a plus. Experience in the industrialization and marketing of medical devices is a plus.
