Facebook Reality Labs Research is looking for an exceptional Mechanical Engineer to help create state-of-the-art Face-Tracking and Body-Tracking capture systems to revolutionize photorealistic telepresence in virtual reality, thus enabling the ability to interact with anyone, anytime, anywhere. We have made some important advances, but it will take a team with a wide spectrum of skills to fully realize this goal.

As a Mechanical Engineer at FRL, you will develop state-of-the-art prototype systems, mechanisms, and solutions for next generation motion capture systems. You will become part of a team exploring new concepts through analytical modeling and fast iterative prototyping. A wide range of approaches will be explored combining electrical, mechanical, optical, firmware, and software techniques. 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 ruggedized system. Starting with a broad scientific background, be willing to become a quick expert in a new area, and quickly build new prototypes using novel materials and/or by integrating structures in new ways leveraging a strong mechanical background. We are looking for a hands-on builder of opto-mechanical systems that can deal with sub-micron tolerances.
