At Reality Labs, we aim to bring together the brightest cross-disciplinary minds in one place to deliver on our mission: build tools that help people feel connected, anytime, anywhere. As an Electrical Engineer on the VR, AR, Portal, or a New Technology Team, you will design, build, and test prototype electrical systems for future consumer experiences within Meta's Family of Products. You will become part of a team exploring new concepts through fast iterative prototyping. You will work cross-functionally with teams that will dynamically change depending on the problem and potentially include mechanical, optical, firmware, software, and research experts. We want people who work well in teams, can take a board definition and implement with electrical schematic and layout, and can transition these designs into a high-volume consumer product. We're looking for system or board level Electrical Engineers with experience in high volume consumer products. These systems will have custom ASICs, microcontrollers, microprocessors, FPGAs from simple to large, displays, audio, camera sensors, and high speed I/O. Familiarity with CAD tools like Cadence OrCAD, Altium, SPICE, ModelSim, or Xilinx, is required. The ideal candidate would be comfortable designing mixed high-speed digital circuit boards, be experienced troubleshooting at the board and system level, and be familiar with the consumer product development process.

Electrical Engineer, Reality Labs Responsibilities

* Designing, simulating, prototyping, and testing of electrical systems in experiments which combine mechanics, optics, and software.
* Collaborating in a team environment across engineering disciplines.
* Designing schematics, completing board layouts, assembling, testing, debugging, and integrating designs into electro-mechanical systems.
* Specifying components.
* Transforming vendor reference designs into custom solutions.
* Incubating new technologies into high volume production.
* Ability to travel both domestically and internationally.
* Working autonomously and taking initiative to manage priorities.

Minimum Qualifications

* 5+ years of industry experience along with a BS in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering, or equivalent experience.
* Experience with schematic and board design using Cadence OrCAD, Altium or equivalent.
* Experience with use of oscilloscopes, high speed digital test equipment, logic analyzers, and function generators.
* Experience working with one of these technologies: digital signal processing, real-time image processing, display engineering, camera modules, mobile SoC and PMIC, or Battery Management System.
* Experience leading technical teams, cross-functional groups and vendors against project plans.

Preferred Qualifications

* MS or PHD in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering.
* 8+ years of industry experience.
* Experience with high speed signaling over DP, MIPI, HDMI, and USB SS.
* Experience with IMUs/sensor physical sensor systems with an understanding of calibration methods.
* Experience with vision systems.
* Experience with audio.
* Experience programming in languages like Python or C/C++.
* Experience with circuit design in high speed circuits, Verilog/FPGAs, microcontrollers, microprocessors, firmware, and programmable logic based development.
* Consumer Electronics experience and/or working within a mass production environment.
