Job Details

Reality Labs at Meta is building products that make it easier for people to connect with the ones they love most, enjoy top-notch, and wire-free VR. We are pushing the future of computing platforms, and we are a team of world-class experts developing and shipping products at the intersection of hardware, software and content.As an Embedded Software Engineer on the Reality Labs team at Meta, you can help build new, innovative hardware and software that radically redefine the way people work, play and connect. What we build today could one day be the norm. So to be here today is to truly be at the heart of change and the frontier of what's to come. We're the people helping to define the metaverse. We may not have all the answers. But together, we're getting closer.As an Embedded Software Engineer, you will architect, design, build and test embedded firmware systems for future AR, VR, and new platforms. In this role, you will participate in the definition of architecture and implementation of designs in both prototype and shipping consumer products as well as demonstrate good development practices and seamless collaboration. Our teams deliver all embedded software from low-level device drivers, to computer vision, to machine learning algorithms.Engineering for Reality Labs device systems spans multiple target classes, requiring deep collaboration across engineering disciplines (electrical, mechanical, algorithms, user experience, silicon architects, and software) and directly impacting user immersion. Our engineers quickly solve problems, generate big ideas, work in new technology areas, drive concepts into prototypes, and envision how those prototypes transition to high-volume consumer products. You will join a world-class team of experts exploring new concepts through rapid prototyping leading to shipping products.
