Electrical Engineer

As an Electrical Engineer at Facebook Reality Labs, you will design, build and test prototype electrical systems for future consumer Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality experiences. You will become part of a team exploring new concepts through fast, iterative prototyping. The teams will dynamically change depending on the problem and potentially include mechanical, optical, firmware, software and research experts where you'll be the electrical expert. We want people who work well in teams, can brainstorm big ideas, work in new technology areas, and are able to drive solutions from design concept to functional prototypes.
