Electrical Engineering Architect

As an Electrical Engineering Architect at Facebook Reality Labs (FRL), you will contribute to the architecture and design of next-generation end-to-end Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) concept prototypes. You will work in a dynamic cross-functional team including electrical, mechanical, firmware and software engineers, also experience, design and research experts. This role will be a key participant in Proof of Concepts (POC) or Proof of Experience (POE) system architecture decisions, be responsible for providing electrical engineering direction to engineering development teams, guide and enable FW, OS, and SW interaction collaboration, provide EE architecture support to Sensors and Silicon teams, etc.


  • Architect and design electrical engineering solutions for end-to-end future VR/AR devices and experiences.
  • Co-lead complex teams and projects towards planning, engineering and standing-up VR/AR POCs or POEs.
  • Coordinate design integration and POC/POE realization with Experiences, Design, FW, SW, Automation, Test and Calibration teams.
  • Develop schematics, guide board layout designs, assemble, test, debug, and integrate designs into complex hardware systems.
  • Establish and conduct collaboration opportunities with external partners or resources.
  • Guide electrical architecture for silicon and sensors solutions.
  • 10+ years of industry experience in hardware design or electrical engineering roles
  • Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or equivalent
  • Experience with opto-electrical systems, such as lasers, proximity sensors, and depth sensors
  • Analog design experience, including experience with switching power supplies, LED drive circuitry, and measurement of analog signals
  • Experience with circuit simulations & modeling (e.g. SPICE, MATLAB)
