Meta's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different type of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to express what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Meta are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities — we're just getting started. 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 seeking a skilled and motivated Foundry Fab Manager to join our team, whose mission is to innovate on tools, materials and processes to help accelerate and de-risk the development of future soft wearable technologies. We are specifically looking for a candidate with experience in building out and managing fabrication facilities and laboratories related to micro- or nanofabrication, MEMS, and/or advanced packaging technologies with aptitude in infrastructure design, operations, and maintenance as well as the selection, installation, maintenance, and monitoring of manufacturing and characterization equipment and processes. You will collaborate with and lead a diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of exceptional researchers and engineers and will have access to cutting edge technology, resources, and testing facilities. We seek people who work well on teams, can brainstorm and communicate big ideas, and can plan and drive development activities.
