Lead Camera and Depth Electrical Engineer

Computer and Mathematical



Sunnyvale, California, United States

The Reality Labs team at Meta is helping more people around the world come together and connect through world-class AR/VR hardware and software. With global teams dedicated to AR/VR research, computer vision, haptics, social interaction, and more, Reality Labs is committed to driving the state-of-the-art forward through relentless innovation. Our Technology Engineering for Devices (TED) team explores, develops, and delivers new cutting-edge technologies that serve as the foundation of current and future AR/VR products. From mixed reality and human interaction to natural inputs and beyond, TED is focused on transforming new technologies from early concept to product by iterating, prototyping, and realizing the human value and new experiences these technologies enable. The potential of AR/VR to change the world is immense and we’re just getting started.The Camera and Depth HW team within TED develops high-performance Camera and Depth solutions for FRL’s AR/VR products. This multidisciplinary group brings research to life by realizing state-of-the-art custom modules including mixed-signal ASICs, image sensors, lasers, optics, and firmware. We are seeking a Lead Camera & Depth Electrical Engineer for end-to-end ownership of development and productization electrical engineering from early concepts to release to mass production. In this role, you will be responsible for the circuit design, board bring-up, implementation and debug of mixed-signal ASICs and systems used in our solutions. You will experiment with and develop novel solutions to complex electronics problems, working closely with cross-functional partners combining electronics, image sensors, optics, mechanicals, and firmware.
