Job Details

At Reality Labs Research (RL-R), our goal is to explore, innovate and design novel interfaces and hardware subsystems for the next generation of virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences. We are looking for a skilled and motivated Tooling/Process Engineer to join our research team whose mission is to lead the design, development, and production of new molding tools and parts for low/moderate volume prototypes. We are specifically looking for a candidate with experience in material selection, process optimization, and tool design for overmolding of electronics. This candidate will be able to work with a team of researchers and engineers who are pushing state-of-the-art wearable devices in part design and material development.

Tooling/Process Engineer Responsibilities:
  • Provide design for molding feedback and materials recommendations to mechanical engineers to improve the manufacturing feasibility of thermoplastic, thermoset, and metal parts
  • Cultivate and manage tooling and molding suppliers in the design, manufacturing and qualification of tooling and molded parts
  • travel as needed to ensure successful tool launch
  • Collaborate with a cross-functional team in the selection of materials to meet performance, schedule, dimensional and cosmetic requirements
  • Lead the design, development, and production of new silicone/plastic injection mold tooling (including optimization trials and DOEs) to meet strict part and assembled device requirements
  • Liaison with other tooling/process engineers to share expertise and take advantage of industry advancements

Minimum Qualifications:
  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent practical experience in Mechanical Engineering, Polymer Engineering, Material Science, Manufacturing Engineering or a relevant technical field
  • 5+ years experience with a wide range of molding techniques including multiple of the following: insert molding, 2 shot molding, die casting, transfer molding, liquid silicone molding, and thermoforming
  • Experience managing working relationships with international and domestic suppliers to design and build tooling for high volume, tight tolerance consumer electronics products or similar
  • Experience guiding teams and suppliers through understanding and use of Molding simulations (Moldflow, etc.), SPC, DOE, and GD&T
  • Experience advising designs with a variety of elastomeric thermoplastic (TPU, TPE) and thermoset (silicone, NBR) resins

Preferred Qualifications:
  • Multishot molding and insert/overmolding of electronic components
  • Experience identifying disruptive technologies in all phases of tool design, tool manufacturing and part creation, and implementing them into production environments
  • Experience with post molding operations including but not limited to: deflashing, coating, painting, pad printing, laser engraving, adhesive application
  • Knowledge in metal part fabrication methods (die-casting, stamping, forging)
  • Experience with tooling quoting, price negotiations, and cost breakdowns
