Graphics and Display Architect

Facebook Reality Labs, or FRL, focuses on delivering Facebook's vision through Augmented Reality (AR). Compute power requirements of Augmented Reality require custom silicon. Facebook Silicon team is driving the state of the art forward with breakthrough work in computer vision, machine learning, mixed reality, graphics, displays, sensors, and new ways to map the human body. Our chips will enable AR devices where our real and virtual world will mix and match throughout the day. We believe the only way to achieve our goals is to look at the entire stack, from transistor, through architecture, to firmware, and algorithms.
Facebook is looking for a Graphics/Display Architect who will work with a world-class group of researchers and engineers. As a Graphics/Display Architect, you’ll lead cutting-edge research projects and be part of a multi-disciplinary team working to usher in the next era of human-computer interaction. The ideal candidate will have enthusiasm for technology and the vision to help drive our future graphics roadmap.
This role will be located in Redmond, WA.
