Mid-Senior Level


Elenion Technologies is driving innovation in silicon photonics, an emerging technology poised to significantly increase performance and reduce costs of optical systems. We are headquartered in New York City, with offices in San Jose, California and Munich, Germany.

After pursuing a path of intensely focused research and development for two years in stealth-mode, Elenion recently unveiled itself to the world and has assembled a world-class team of multi-disciplinary experts. Members of our leadership team have built and sold several companies, published papers in the top scientific journals in the world, raised hundreds of millions of dollars of venture capital, and have built products and deployed them to the market. The technical team includes world leaders in our space, and many members are PhD scientists and engineers from the top schools in the world, such as MIT, Caltech, UChicago, and Columbia.

Elenion is developing next-generation photonic integrated circuit technologies and solutions for a broad range of datacom and telecom applications.
