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, Meta is committed to driving the state-of-the-art forward through relentless innovation. The potential of AR/VR to change the world is immense and we’re just getting started.

Our Technology Engineering for Devices (TED) team explores, develops, and delivers new cutting-edge technologies that serve as the foundation of current and future Meta 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 Depth HW team within TED develops high-performance depth solutions for FRL’s AR/VR products. This multidisciplinary group brings research to life by realizing state-of-the-art custom modules including ASICs, lasers, optics, firmware etc. Depth HW team is seeking a Mechanical Engineering Lead for end-to-end ownership of laser based optical modules from initial design to high volume delivery.

We are seeking an Opto-Mechanical Engineer who has a passion for working across disciplines to transform research technologies into physical solutions.
