Electrical Engineering Manager

As an Electrical Engineering Team Lead on the Facebook Reality Labs Research Team, you will fulfill a critical role by designing, building, and testing prototype electrical systems for future consumer VR and AR experiences. You will lead a team of engineers exploring new concepts through fast iterative prototyping. You will work cross-functionally with teams that will dynamically change depending on the problem and potentially include mechanical, optical, firmware, software, and research experts. We want people who work well in teams, can brainstorm big ideas, work in new technology areas, are able to drive a concept into a prototype and then mature the design to high-volume consumer product solution. Your primary role will be split between supporting a small team of EE's and providing technical leadership on one of many prototyping efforts. You should be able to create a board definition and implement with electrical schematic and layout, bring-up, troubleshoot, and ready these devices for small-batch research prototyping efforts.

Our Electrical Engineers have experience in embedded design and mixed-signal design. These systems will have ASICs, uControllers, uProcessors, FPGAs from simple to large, displays, audio, inertial sensors and accelerometers, haptic interfaces, camera sensors, and high speed I/O. Familiarity with CAD tools like Cadence Orcad, Altium, SPICE, ModelSim, or Xilinx, is required. The ideal candidate would be comfortable designing mixed high speed digital circuit boards, getting them built, and be experienced in troubleshooting at the board and system level.
