Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.

We at Facebook Reality Labs are looking for an Image Quality Engineer who can bring together the disparate simulation models of the component parts of our image chain, and employ this end-to-end pipeline in a continuous feedback loop to optimize product image quality requirements against system constraints. The candidate will be expected to interface with silicon, graphics, perception and display teams.

  • Work cross-functionally with silicon, graphics, perception and display teams to implement pipeline models, and to simulate end-to-end performance of our image pipeline using those models
  • Implement system simulations of pipeline components using a mixture of C/C++ and MATLAB
  • Validating simulations with unit tests and perceptual metrics
  • Using simulation results to propose improvements to aspects of the pipeline, and verification of those improvements by modeling and human factors testing
  • Perform tradeoff analyses against visual quality metrics
  • Bachelors degree in image processing, displays, optics, or related field/experience
  • Experience coding in both C/C++ and MATLAB
  • Experience in taking image-based (e.g. camera, printer, display) products to market
  • Understanding of typical image processing algorithms and SW/HW implementation through the entire pipeline
  • Experience in managing production-level tradeoffs required in typical image pipelines
  • Experience in working as part of a cross-functional team and familiarity with typical software/hardware design processes
  • Ph.D. in image processing, displays, or optics
  • Understanding of the human visual system, color science and perceptual aspects
  • Experience developing custom image processing silicon
  • Experience in display systems, preferably Augmented or Virtual Reality
