Prototyping Electrical Engineer, University Grad, AR\/VR

The AR/VR organization's mission is to give people the tools to feel connected anytime, anywhere. We create new, category-defining consumer hardware and software products that provide immersive social experiences and increase the depth of how billions of people connect. The team is a diverse group of problem solvers, inventors, and proven visionaries who are relentless about transforming everyday occurrences into rich experiences that have the potential to improve the way billions of people live.

We've introduced our first generation of Oculus virtual reality products and are committed to driving the technology forward through continued innovation at Facebook Reality Labs. Our Portal line of consumer hardware is changing how friends and families connect. Our Spark AR platform is the largest augmented reality platform in the world, powering mobile AR experiences across Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger. In the future, our AR glasses will merge the physical and digital worlds, blending what's real with what's possible, resulting in the next mainstream, must-have, wearable consumer technology.

As a Prototyping Electrical Engineer at Facebook AR Graphics Team, you will design, build, and test prototype electrical systems for future consumer VR and AR experiences. You will become part of a team 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, and with mentorship can take a board definition and implement with electrical schematic and layout, and can transition these designs into a high-volume consumer product.
