Redmond, WA
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 Electrical Engineer to join our Hardware Development Team, whose mission is to design, build, and test prototype electrical systems for future consumer VR and AR experiences. We are specifically looking for a candidate with a broad set of experiences which could include analog/mixed signal design, low power design, high-speed design, RF, or biometric sensing. The systems we work with could have ASICs, microcontrollers, application processors, FPGAs, displays, audio, inertial sensors, haptic interfaces, camera sensors, and high speed I/O. You will work cross-functionally with teams that will dynamically change depending on the problem and potentially include mechanical, firmware, software, and research experts. The ideal candidate will work well in teams, can brainstorm big ideas, work in new technology areas, enjoy driving a concept into a design, and tolerate a high degree of ambiguity. More broadly, the chosen candidate will work with a diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of researchers and engineers and will have access to cutting edge technology, resources, and testing facilities.
