The electrical engineering team within Oculus is seeking a PCB Layout Engineer. This candidate will be working with engineers and design teams throughout the full product development life-cycle. We are looking for a self-starter and a team player who can thrive in a dynamic environment. Strong communications and organizational skills and the ability to multitask across various disciplines and tasks are a must.
As a PCB Layout Engineer, you will be working with hardware engineers and PCB/Assembly vendors to determine PCB stack-up, apply design constraints, perform component placement and signal routing and DFM. You will assist hardware engineers to perform signal integrity and power integrity analysis, and release fab and assembly package into the Oculus PLM system.

Required Skills

  • Work with the Electrical Engineering hardware team to provide PCB board design. Layout complex multilayer printed circuit boards containing analog, digital, RF, and power components.
  • Create and manage PCB documentation including fabrication and assembly packages, such as Gerber, ODB, BoM, fab and assembly drawings.
  • Interface with board fabrication vendor to select proper materials and stack-up, use correct impedance and DFX rulesets.
  • Work with assembly vendors to supply data and seek assembly design requirements. Resolve DFM and manufacturing related issues.
  • Work with hardware engineers and document control department to release fab and assembly packages into company-wide PLM system. Author ECO's if necessary.
  • Work closely with ECAD librarian on maintaining and expanding company-wide library.

Minimum Qualification

  • BS in EE or equivalent experience
