Photonics R&D Engineer

Mitrex, an Integrated solar and construction solution provider, is looking for a Photonics Engineer for Building Integrated Photovoltaic products including Solar Cladding Panels. The ideal candidate will have a background in PHOTONICS. We are looking for someone who can create, improve, and test systems and products that use photonics—including lasers, optics, fiber optics, and imaging. You must be creative, and have skills in analysis, problem-solving, and new product development. As part of our R&D team, you will be helping to develop new solar products for large installations.


Toronto-based Mitrex is a world-class developer and manufacturer of next-generation Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) Cladding Systems for buildings and large structures []. We believe that all vertical surface areas of buildings should be able to generate clean solar energy at a competitive price.
