Job Details

As a Hardware Requirements System Engineer at Meta Reality Labs, you will be a part of the teams designing, building, and testing prototypes for future consumer virtual reality (VR) experiences. We want people who work well in teams, can brainstorm big ideas, work in new technology areas, thrive in ambiguity, are able to map tradespaces, are able to drive a concept into a prototype, and can envision how a prototype could transition into a high-volume consumer product.The Hardware Requirements System Engineer will ensure the convergence of complex and novel sub-system and product architectures aimed at pushing the state-of-the-art consumer VR systems. These can span new sensing systems, display and optics systems, input devices, and full VR headsets. The role requires expert technical communication with cross-functional teams across Industrial Design (ID), hardware engineering, partnerships, supply chain and core technology groups to drive incubation of new technologies from proof of concept through integration into products for mass production. This role requires excellent technical understanding of consumer electronics and VR systems across the stack.Starting with a broad engineering background in electrical, mechanical, optics, semiconductors, or related fields, the ideal candidate would have strong systems skills, demonstrated leadership skills, previous roles driving architecture convergence on complex consumer electronics products, experience with SoC evaluation, optical systems, sensors, CV algorithms, software, and able to work collaboratively with experts in different fields to make architectural tradeoffs.

Hardware Systems Requirements Engineer Responsibilities:
  • Develop processes to ensure proper documentation at all stages of product development, requirements flow, verification and validation, and interaction between various subsystems
  • Ensure Systems Engineering is represented at architectural reviews and the needs of various subsystems are properly addressed
  • Assist in tracking and monitoring schedule performance. Identify solutions for recovering schedule and mitigating schedule risks.
  • Stay abreast of potential resource conflicts and opportunities for leveraging efficiencies with other activities and develop risk mitigation plans.
  • Provide leadership with insight to project expectations, priorities, perceptions, and plans.
  • Works on all aspects of system engineering from initial identification of risk, opportunities, and issues at the operational level through to the strategic decision processes.
  • Responsible for requirements and configuration management through Model Based Systems Engineering
  • Integrate across the organization to provide system engineering insights to all technical execution groups and TPMs
  • Reviews and provides technical evaluations of key System Engineering documents
  • Develop and review technical assessments and presentations.
  • Manage the impact of requirement changes, and implementing changes in requirements
  • Manage data-driven methods for developing requirements and verification related deliverables, such as specifications, design criteria, system descriptions, and verification tracking
  • Coordinate and facilitate technical discussions to resolve requirement issues
  • Drive the technical scoping and development of new technologies to deliver
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams on blank-slate and early-phase prototyping and product exploration, mapping it to strategic and product questions which need to be resolved
  • Create hardware system metrics, KPIs, standards and tools
  • Drive development of system requirements to create new virtual reality experiences, and help advance technology and research roadmap
  • Travel up to 15% time domestically and internationally

Minimum Qualifications:
  • 10+ years of product experience in electrical, mechanical or optical engineering
  • Experience building and managing technical teams
  • Experience with architecture and systems engineering across electrical, firmware, mechanical, audio and optical systems
  • Experience integrating and delivering one or more of these technologies: displays, optics, silicon, sensors, thermal systems
  • Experience in rapid prototyping and creating proof of concept models to share ideas and improve architectural decisions
  • Communication experience working with Product Development engineers, Product Managers and other hardware/software cross-functional teams
  • Experience working with partnerships teams and external partners at both a supply base and product level

Preferred Qualifications:
  • MS in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering other related technical field or equivalent experience
  • Experience in regulated industries such as aerospace, defense, automotive or medical
  • Experience in firmware development, programming, computer vision, OS, game development, and complex sensing systems
  • Experience with various sensors and data streams, including IMU, lidar, radar and cameras
  • Experience creating system models to analyze system compute, latency and communication interface bandwidths across multiple subsystems within a heterogeneous compute environment in order to define the system architecture to meet the overall goals of the product definition
  • Working knowledge across the following areas with experience in at least one: - interfaces, optical, sensors, modules, ISP and algorithm fundamentals, CV/ML - network impacts on latency, throughput and Jitter, VoIP, video communications - general Machine learning (DNN, CNN, RNN)
  • Experience with influencing silicon vendors roadmaps and SOC features sets with emphasis on using advanced IP in the realms of Machine Learning, Graphics and Imaging
  • Experience leading cross-functional teams and managing by influence
