Facebook Electrical Engineer, Compute Systems in Redmond, Washington


As an Electrical Engineer at Oculus Research, 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. The teams will dynamically change depending on the problem and potentially include mechanical, optical, firmware, software, and research experts where you’ll be the electrical expert. We want people who: work well in teams, can brainstorm big ideas, work in new technology areas, able to drive a concept into a prototype, and can envision how a prototype could transition into a high-volume consumer product.

Starting with a broad electrical engineering background, we’re looking for a unique digital system designer or hands-on digital architect. The digital circuits will all be real-time systems using uControllers, uProcessors, and FPGAs from simple to large. Familiarity with CAD tools like Altium, SPICE, ModelSim, or Xilinx, is required. The ideal candidate would be comfortable: designing mixed high speed digital systems, experience with driving displays, programming firmware, and able to work collaboratively with experts in different fields to make architectural tradeoffs.

Required Skills:

  1. Designing, simulating, prototyping, and testing of electrical systems in virtual reality experiments which combine mechanics, optics and software.

  2. Collaborating in a team environment across engineering disciplines.

  3. Designing schematics, completing board layouts, assembling, testing, debugging, and integrating designs into opto-electro-mechanical systems.

  4. Specifying components.

  5. Transforming vendor reference designs into custom VR solutions.

Minimum Qualifications:

  1. BS in digital system design/Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering, or equivalent experience

  2. 5+ years of industry experience with schematic and board design using Altium or equivalent

  3. Experience with the use of oscilloscopes, high speed digital test equipment, logic analyzers, and function generators

  4. Circuit design experience in high speed differential circuits, Verilog/FPGAs, uControllers, uProcessors, firmware, and programmable logic based development

  5. Experience working with one of these technologies: Digital signal processing, real-time image processing, display engineering, or camera modules

  6. Experience programming in C, creating initial system bring-up, debugging, and test codes

Preferred Qualifications:

  1. Experience with PC architectures and/or Android architectures

  2. Experience with High Speed design

  3. Experience with vision systems

  4. Experience with battery systems and specifically Li Ion and Li technologies

  5. Experience programming in other languages like Python/Java/C#
