Job Description:

As a member of the Systems Engineering organization at Facebook Reality Labs, you will be responsible for productizing a sensor or display/optics system that is core to delivering transformative experiences in Oculus AR/VR products. You will join an agile team that is laser-focused on incubating winning prototypes, establishing new process capabilities with supply-chain partners, and releasing product sub-systems that are fully hardened for high-volume manufacturing (HVM). We are seeking an engineer experienced with early technology paths; able to work collaboratively across both deep and broad cross-functional teams to manage system maturation, requirements, and respective risks; and focused on execution while providing clear and effective communication to remove barriers across teams.

Lead Optical System Engineer Responsibilities:

  • Develop new concepts and technologies for Near-Eye Display (NED) and sensor systems.
  • Cross-functional engagement with internal and external partners to develop concepts and prototypes into realizable product hardware designs.
  • Define sub-system requirements with the product team, then deliver AR/VR hardware, software, and calibration that meets specifications. This may include: hardware (optics, electronics, mechanics, silicon, sensor, data-communication), software (computer vision algorithms, calibration, modeling, analysis), and performance analysis.
  • Drive optical system requirements definitions. Flow down optical system requirements to sub-system and component level. Resolve requirements discrepancies at different levels.
  • Drive design verification, testing, and troubleshooting process to correlate with optical modeling and metrology, and between sub-system performance and system performance.
  • Support TPMs in evaluation, validation, and delivery to specs by metrology, user studies, safety studies, FMEA analysis, environmental analysis, and dogfooding.

    Minimum Qualifications:
    • BS in Engineering, Physics, Optics, Computer Science or equivalent work experience
    • 6+ years of experience in developing systems with multi-function/multi-disciplinary threads
    • 6+ years experience and knowledge of optics one or more of the following: systems design and integration, imaging, illumination, radiometry and photometry, physical and geometric optics, statistics, and polarization
    • Experience in optical and sensor system design maturation, including requirement development from physical based modeling, and knowledge of fabrication/vendor processes
    • Experience in one or more system optimization and analysis tools, such as MATLAB, C++, or Java

      Preferred Qualifications:
      • PhD in the field of Optical Engineering, Physics, Electrical Engineering or related degree
      • 10+ years of experience in research or advanced optics development
      • Experience with multiple full life cycle product launches
      • Experience with multiple full life cycle product launches
      • Experience with 3D tracking methods, algorithms, devices and systems
      • Experience with design/manufacturing of small form-factor sensing or imaging systems
      • Process development experience for optical parts, sensors, computer vision, software and hardware integration
      • Experience developing manufacturing process(es) for coatings, molding, replication, diamond-turning
      • Rapid prototyping experience (i.e. 3D printing, laser cutting, etc.)
      • Experience in opto-mechanical integration and system design
