At Facebook Reality Labs (FRL), our goal is to explore, innovate and design novel interfaces and hardware subsystems for virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences. We are looking for a skilled and motivated Thermal Engineer to join our team, whose mission is to work with a broad range of multidisciplinary research to advance the state of the art of AR/VR experiences. We are specifically looking for a candidate with experience in developing system level thermal architectures for wearable devices while considering a broad range of hardware requirements including power systems, novel materials, sensors/actuators/display integrations, and reliability performance. This candidate should be able to explore novel ideas and assess thermal architecture concept feasibility through the use of analytical modeling and fast and iterative prototyping. More broadly, the chosen candidate will work with a diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of researchers and engineers and will have access to cutting edge technology, resources, and testing facilities.
