Digital Design Engineer

Facebook Reality Labs, or FRL, focuses on delivering Facebook's vision through Augmented Reality (AR). Compute power requirements of Augmented Reality require custom silicon. Facebook Silicon team is driving the state of the art forward with breakthrough work in computer vision, machine learning, mixed reality, graphics, displays, sensors, and new ways to map the human body. Our chips will enable AR devices where our real and virtual world will mix and match throughout the day. We believe the only way to achieve our goals is to look at the entire stack, from transistor, through architecture, to firmware, and algorithms.
We are growing our Digital Design Engineering team within AR Silicon and are seeking engineers at all levels who will work with a world-class group of researchers and engineers using your digital design skills to implement and contribute to development and optimization of state of the art SoCs as well as vision/sensing algorithms. You will also support the Silicon Architects in developing and implementing the next generation custom and semi-custom mixed signal ICs to drive our industry leading virtual and augmented reality systems.
This role can be based in Redmond, WA or Menlo Park, CA.
