Join Our Team

Nanofabrication Engineer

Company Overview:

Vyir Tech is a high-tech startup with a patented technology focused on infrared cameras. Our Nano EnCoater Technology allows for better image quality, a reduction in camera size, weight, and power, at a lower price point.

Technology Vision:

A typical infrared camera uses pixels fabricated from semiconductor materials that are electrically read out. These are expensive and low resolution, preventing their adoption for promising applications. Vyir's optical infrared camera uses pixels fabricated from its Nano EnCoater technology that transduce the information from an infrared image into visible laser light and then uses a standard cell phone complementary metal-oxide semiconductor camera for optical readout. This approach enables a 10X reduction in price, reducing hardware size, weight, and power, enhancing pixels by 15X to provide better image quality.

Technology Potential for Impact:

Infrared cameras are versatile tools that enable the world to be seen in a different light. They enhance our awareness and lead to increased safety, resulting in reduced loss of life and property damage. What you don't see may harm you. Threats on a battlefield can be identified by soldiers with infrared cameras, dangerous gas leaks in the petrochemical industry can be located from a safe distance and automobiles can be seen at night, through rain, and gain awareness of potential obstacles. Vyir's vision is to make this technology universal. 

Primary Duties and Responsibilities: 

As a Nanofabrication Engineer, you'll be a crucial part of the team. You'll be working directly on fabricating our core technology.
