MEMS Engineer - Controls

Computer and Mathematical



Redmond, Washington, United States

As a MEMS Engineer at Meta, you will take a critical role in developing next generation AR and VR Systems. You will become part of a team exploring new MEMS concepts through design and fast iterative prototyping. A wide range of approaches will be explored combining electrical, mechanical, optical, and software techniques. We want people who work well in teams, can brainstorm big ideas, work in new technology areas, and are able to drive a concept into a prototype and then mature the design to a high-volume consumer product solution. The candidate should have strong knowledge of MEMS actuation, sensing, and control algorithms for device operation, and expertise in MEMS prototyping, testing, and analysis. The candidate will work with a team of engineers and scientists focused on design, prototyping, testing, and scale-up of novel MEMS systems.
