Senior Product Manager

Are you ready to make a significant impact? We're not talking about creating the next viral app but rather revolutionizing the most advanced manufacturing industry globally and improving the lives of countless individuals within it.

Envision yourself stepping into a semiconductor factory—a massive facility housing thousands of machines within a pristine, dust-free cleanroom. Clad in a clean suit, you have the opportunity to explore the photolithography cell, passing by machines valued at over $100 million each, utilising ultraviolet light exposures to imprint nanometer-scale patterns onto silicon wafers.

As you stroll along the entire row of these cutting-edge machines, it takes a full minute, and the rest of the factory requires multiple hours to tour. Consider the billions invested in constructing such a facility, and now, picture the impact of our optimisation software, effortlessly adding 10% or more capacity. This isn't just a tech solution; it's a game-changer with a tangible effect on the global GDP. Our products directly contribute to the development of the next generation of chips, powering AI data centres, autonomous vehicles, and yes, even rockets (we're proud to collaborate with a SpaceX supplier!). If you're ready to be part of something truly transformative, this is the opportunity you've been waiting for.
