As an Opto-Mechanical Engineer at Facebook, you will take a critical role in developing AR & VR Systems. You will become part of a team exploring new concepts through mechanical design, optical modeling, and fast iterative prototyping. A wide range of approaches will be explored combining electrical, mechanical, optical, firmware, and software techniques. We want people who work well in teams, can brainstorm big ideas, work in new technology areas, are able to drive a concept into a prototype, and mature designs to a high-volume consumer product solution. We are looking for someone with a productive mindset who can apply their mechanical and optical engineering expertise to solve problems in creative, insightful ways. Our ideal candidate has a strong fundamental engineering background, prototyping experience, 3D CAD capability, and experience designing and manufacturing consumer technology products.

  • Drive development of opto-mechanical system requirements for advanced imaging and camera system technologies
  • Model, build, test, and refine prototypes and characterization test systems
  • Work across the full product development cycle, from concept inception to shipping product
  • Work with vendors worldwide
  • Push state-of-the-art technologies and approaches to solving complex mechanical problems

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS

  • BS in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent experience
  • 2+ years of mechanical engineering experience in high-volume consumer electronics product development
  • Knowledge of material properties such as plastics, metal, adhesive, glass, PCBA, and flex circuit
  • Knowledge and application of GD&T techniques and knowledge of associated metrology approaches
  • Knowledge of high-volume manufacturing techniques (Stamping, machining, 3D printing, injection molding, etc.)
  • Experience in 3D design modeling (NX, SolidWorks, or Creo) and physical prototyping
  • Experience in testing and analysis (FEA, Simulation, Zemax, Ray Tracing, etc.)
