At Meta’s Reality Labs Research, we are developing the future of AR/VR technologies. As a Display Systems Lead, you will drive display subsystem requirements and design for our future AR/VR products. The ideal candidate will have a background in Display Engineering and a track record in the development and commercialization of novel display technologies. In addition to proven ability to work with cross-functional teams to leverage their expertise, the ideal candidate will also have proven experience in working with a cross-functional team of silicon, graphics, perceptual science, display system, and product management partners in a fast-paced environment. The candidate must excel in managing rapidly-changing and often ambiguous requirements as well as creating and presenting architecture documents.
Display Systems Lead Responsibilities
  • Develop novel display system technologies for future AR/VR products.
  • Partner across graphics, optics, silicon, perception, experiences, and product management teams to deliver best-in-class solutions.
  • Work cross-functionally to implement first-order power, performance, and image quality models, from which increasingly sophisticated subsystem models can be developed while driving system-level trade-off decisions.
  • Work with external academic and industrial partners to track and push the state-of-the-art in-display system components.
  • Perform roadmap analyses of promising technologies.
  • Understand mass-production constraints and develop cost models and incorporate these considerations into system-level designs prior to technology transfer to the display product team.
  • Design and deliver demonstrations and prototypes.
Minimum Qualifications
  • PhD degree or equivalent experience in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Physics, Optics, or a related field.
  • 15+ years of industry experience in Display Engineering or a related field.
  • Experience in ground-up development and commercialization of novel display systems.
  • Track record in working with large, distributed and cross-functional HW and SW teams.
  • Experience in managing production-level trade-offs in typical display product design.
  • Experience working with the human visual system, light sources, polarization, color science, optics, display processing, and silicon design workflows.
Preferred Qualifications
  • Proficiency in MATLAB or C/C++.
  • Background in developing custom silicon, particularly for display pipelines.
  • Experience in new technology development road mapping, prototyping, and evaluation for novel display systems.
  • Experience developing AR/VR or other novel display systems.
