Meta Reality Labs (RL) Sensors Team is helping build novel products in Augmented and Virtual Reality. Meta AR/VR research and development in Sensors and Sensing Systems is driving the state-of-the-art forward through relentless innovation. Our team explores, develops, and delivers new cutting-edge technologies that serve as the foundation of current and future AR/VR products at Meta. We are looking for candidates who can play a pivotal role in concept creation, modeling and prototyping new sensor solutions. This role will provide an opportunity to participate in all aspects of the product life-cycle from proof-of-concept to launch and ultimately shape the future of AR/VR products.


MS in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, microsystems or related fields

Experience in at least one relevant specialization area including transducer architectures, analog and digital readout circuits, multi-physics system modeling and sensor fusion using Kalman filters

5+ years’ industry experience developing sensors for consumer applications including gyroscopes, accelerometers, magnetometers, pressure sensor, force sensor, ultrasonic transducers and/or other MEMS transducers

Understanding of EE, ME, and Physics fundamentals

Experience with sensor system level modeling using MATLAB, Simulink, COMSOL or similar environments

Interpersonal experience with cross-group and cross-culture collaboration


Collaborate with other researchers and engineers across both hardware and research teams at Meta to define motion sensing solutions that advance the state-of-the-art in AR/VR systems

Own problem space identification, building application-level requirements, sensor specification derivation and solution proposal while also supporting product integration and validation

Oversee system-level trade-offs in performance, battery life and hardware design of current AR/VR products and address gaps by leverage existing solutions, combining multiple sensor modalities, driving vendor roadmaps or initiating internal technology developments to improve the overall customer experience

Build sensor models, simulate signal chain, perform signal processing, and tune sensor parameters to optimize performance for specific applications

Lead internal and external partners on performance and reliability evaluations for new technology development, technology qualification, process changes to ensure manufacturing robustness

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

PhD in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, microsystems or related fields

Understanding of transducer principles, ASIC architectures and digital signal processing

Experience with documenting motion system requirements and system flow down specifications from architecture to components

Experience implementing motion algorithms e.g. dead reckoning, activity classification, motion compensation of optical or other sensors

Scripting skills and understanding of low-level software (hardware description language such as Verilog or VHDL, firmware & drivers in C or C++)

Familiarity with the emerging Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technologies

Self-motivated engineer with great initiative and a proven track record of developing sensing systems from initial definition throughout the product life cycle

Demonstrates understanding of system-level impact of design choices and associated tradeoffs
