Date(发布日期): 2022-3-23


As an Anthropometric Mechanical Engineer within the multidisciplinary Concept Design Team, you will employ your expertise in problem solving and prototyping to accelerate product development across Facebook’s hardware organization. You will collaborate with teams within Hardware Engineering, Research and Development, and Industrial Design. These projects cover a wide variety of technical challenges unique to Facebook’s hardware portfolio, including Oculus, Portal, and beyond. This role requires expertise in both designing and building prototyping platforms and tools for ergonomic and anthropometric evaluation. You will focus on the early stages of product development, with a particular focus on informing learnings and risks associated with human factors: comfort, fit, pressure, and functionality of our products in how they interface with our users.

You must be able to work with minimal guidance, demonstrate a high attention to detail, be partnership-oriented and possess strong problem-solving skills. You must be a self-starter, well-organized and have excellent communication skills. Our team is constantly growing and you will be relied upon to help define team direction and be motivated to improve the effectiveness of our tools and processes from each project to the next.
