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 VR and AR 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.

Starting with a broad electrical engineering background, we're looking for a unique digital system designer or hands-on digital architect. The digital circuits will all be real-time systems using uControllers, uProcessors, and FPGAs from simple to large. Familiarity with CAD tools like Altium, SPICE, ModelSim, or Xilinx, is required. The ideal candidate would be comfortable: designing mixed high speed digital systems, experience with driving displays, programming firmware, and able to work collaboratively with experts in different fields to make architectural tradeoffs.

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

Minimum Qualifications

  • 5+ years of experience past a BS in digital system design/Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering, or equivalent experience.
  • Schematic and board design using Altium or equivalent.
  • Use of 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

  • Programming in other languages like Python/Java/C#.
