Electrical Engineer, Systems (Oculus)

The Oculus team at Facebook is helping more people around the world come together and connect through excellent VR hardware and software. With global departments dedicated to VR research, computer vision, haptics, social interaction, and more. Oculus is committed to driving the state-of-the-art forward through relentless innovation. VR’s potential to change the world is immenseâ€"and we are just getting started.

As the Product Development team, we are builders who break down barriers to what is possible. Together we design hardware that transforms technology into product.

As an Electrical Engineer at Oculus you will design, simulate, implement, and debug systems and circuits used in virtual reality hardware. You will experiment with and develop novel solutions to the myriad of complex electrical problems sitting between reality and virtual reality. You will work closely with mechanical, optical, computer vision and software engineers on exploration and definition of advanced virtual reality systems. You will own the electrical design from prototype to production. You should have deep experience in complex PCBA development integrating processors, cameras, sensors and video/data interfaces.
