At Facebook Reality Labs, our goal is to make world-class consumer virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences. Come work alongside industry-leading scientists and engineers to create the technology that makes VR and AR pervasive and universal. Join the adventure of a lifetime as we make science fiction real and change the world.

We are currently seeking innovative scientists with experience designing, modeling, and prototyping advanced optical systems for near-to-eye display applications. Successful candidates must be comfortable working in a dynamic cross-functional team. We are seeking a full-time researcher with expertise in electro-optic device design, fabrication, and testing. The candidate will have a track record in active photonics and functional component technologies and will work closely with our team of researchers and engineers on fabrication and packaging technologies. Candidates must possess a fundamental understanding of integrated lasers, photodetectors and modulators of photonic integrated circuit and industrial fabrication and packaging. Specifically, candidates should have experience in the fabrication of active PIC components in CMOS compatible foundries and/or research grade labs. The ideal candidate would demonstrate possessing a deep understanding of the typical integration flow required to fabricated highly integrated electrical and optical circuits.
