Careers at Oculus

Part of Facebook

As an Electrical Engineer at Oculus Research, you will design, build and test prototype electrical systems for future consumer virtual reality (VR) 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, able to drive a concept into a prototype and can envision how a prototype could transition into a high-volume consumer product.
We are looking for broad layout design background, with experience implementing digital, power and some RF. Extensive use of CAD tools like Altium is required. The ideal candidate would be comfortable implementing systems in both space constrained and test board implementations. They would have experience with library management and the use of revision control is a must. The candidate should be comfortable liaising with both designers and board suppliers.


  • Designing, simulating, prototyping and testing of electrical systems in virtual reality 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 opto-electro-mechanical systems
  • Specifying components
  • Transforming vendor reference designs into custom AR/VR solutions
Minimum Qualifications
  • BS in digital System Design, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or equivalent experience
  • 5+ years of industry experience
  • Experience with schematic and board design using Altium or equivalent
  • Experience with oscilloscopes, high speed digital test equipment, logic analyzers, and function generators
  • Circuit design experience in high speed differential circuits, Verilog/FPGAs, uControllers, uProcessors, firmware and programmable logic based development
  • Experience working with one of these technologies: Digital signal processing, real-time image processing, display engineering or camera modules
  • Experience programming in C, creating initial system bring-up, debugging and test codes
Preferred Qualifications
  • 10+ years of industry experience
  • Experience with camera sensors
  • Experience with high speed serial interfaces such as USB, Ethernet and MIPI
  • Experience with PID/control theory
  • Experience in C programming micro-controllers
  • Experience with driving miniature electro-mechanical systems
  • Electronics design experience for portable or wearable products
