Jobs

Facebook Reality Labs is dedicated to the research and development required to bring virtual and augmented reality to billions of people around the world. We aspire to a vision of social VR and AR, where people are able to interact with each other across distances in a way that is indistinguishable from in-person interactions. FRLR is looking for a talented Electrical Engineer to accelerate the progression to authentic social presence in virtual reality. In our current pipeline, a multitude of sensing components, including image sensors, microphones, and inertial measurement units are installed on the headset prototypes in order to collect a rich suite of information that reflects the user's physical state, with an emphasis on modality synchronicity and latency minimization; this information is then processed by our state-of-the-art algorithms to allow for a computational representation of the user. The ideal candidate for this position will be experienced in circuit simulation and modeling, schematics capture, and layout design involving high-speed digital systems and programmable logic, as well as the use of multi-GHz digital test equipment; a working knowledge of industry-standard differential signaling and communication protocols would also be crucial. You will work in a dynamic cross-functional team including electrical, mechanical, and software engineers, as well as design and research experts. Strong communication and interpersonal skills are required.

  • Design electrical engineering solutions for novel VR/AR devices and systems
  • Establish and conduct collaborations with internal and external technology partners and vendors
  • Co-lead the engineering of large and complex multidisciplinary hardware projects
  • Discover new trends and solutions in high speed interconnects, such as those based on MIPI, USB, PCIe, and Ethernet
  • Apply novel engineering solution to challenging power/size/thermal requirements
  • Contribute hands-on to developing schematics, guiding board layout, assembly, testing, debugging, and integration of multi-component electrical systems, as well as implementing RTL for programmable logic

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS

  • Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or equivalent
  • 5+ years of industry experience in hardware design and electrical engineering roles
  • Experience mentoring junior engineers and working highly independently while managing priorities
  • Experience rapidly prototyping hardware solutions to enable fast research iterations
  • Experience accommodating a high degree of ambiguity, scope change and flexibility
  • Experience with low and high speed communication interfaces, such as MIPI, USB, PCIe, I2C, UART, SPI, and I2S
  • Experience with debugging high-speed digital systems
  • Experience with schematic and board design using Cadence OrCAD, Altium, or equivalent, targeting HDI design
  • Experience with use of oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, function generators, and other digital test equipment. Practical experience of measuring/analyzing multi-GHz signals
