Careers at Oculus

Part of Facebook

At Oculus, we're developing the future of augmented (AR), virtual (VR) and mixed reality (MR). We are seeking a Head of Concept Engineering who has a passion for working across disciplines to turn early cutting edge concepts and technologies into reality. As a Hardware Engineer in the Concept Engineering team, you will be responsible for hardware architecture and design of new concepts and technologies. The Concept Engineering team actively participates in concept development and design ideation of cutting edge technologies. The team is responsible for rapidly building and iterating polished high-fidelity prototypes and development platforms that bring new ideas to life by expressing design intent and user experience - using the best and most appropriate tools and techniques for the task. While we want these prototypes to be optimized for speed, the hardware and software should be designed with the ultimate goal of mass production. These prototypes and development platforms will be used to prove and sell concepts through establishing end user value to development teams and senior leadership; additionally, they would be used in testing and data collection in support of hardware technology and computer vision algorithm development.
