Halo Industries has invented a technology to replace a decades-old semiconductor material slicing process that wastes billions of dollars annually.

Halo’s laser-based technology eliminates this waste, delivering improvements in both material cost and performance, while enabling manufacturing advancements in a diverse set of high-growth applications markets, including the automotive, grid infrastructure, telecommunications, and power electronics sectors.

Halo originally spun out of Stanford University in 2014, acquiring a significant A round of VC funding in 2020 following the successful demonstration of the company’s precision material slicing equipment.

Halo is currently defining the foundation for its planned volume manufacturing operations, building a passionate team to meet its next milestone of deploying the company’s first fully integrated production line.

Halo Industries is well-funded, engaged with strategic customers, and staged to achieve rapid operational, revenue, and valuation growth.

The Opportunity

Halo Industries is seeking a senior staff level Electrical Engineer to contribute to the architect, build, test, and certification for Halo’s proprietary material processing equipment.
