At Reality Labs in Meta, we bring together the brightest cross-disciplinary minds in one place to deliver our mission: build tools that help people feel connected, anytime, anywhere. Developers, researchers, engineers, and designers all working together to help build a more expansive – and more inclusive – future for all of us. The metaverse is the next evolution of social connection. Our company’s vision is to help bring the metaverse to life.

The Meta Quest 2 is the latest in our continuing evolution of the VR experience, adding more performance, power and functionality to create a world-class and industry-leading device. At Meta, we’re developing all the exciting new technologies that will help people connect and explore in the metaverse in all-day wearable form factors – displays, cameras, optics, sensors, audio and silicon to enable computer vision, graphics, full body tracking, perception science, and true telepresence. Our goal is to transform how we play, work, learn, communicate, and experience the world around us.

The Director of VR Hardware Engineering will be responsible for managing and guiding our high-volume VR engineering programs, managing a large team of engineers, spanning electrical and mechanical engineering, systems engineering and platform development working closely with the many cross-functional teams supporting it to bring to market.

The ideal candidate will have significant experience in leading multi-functional, highly complex, engineering teams developing advanced technology electronics products – with proven success in bringing these products to market. They should have direct experience with prototyping new technologies in multiple areas, working to develop new processes to integrate them into products.

They must have strong interpersonal and communication skills along with a comprehensive understanding of cross-functional interconnectedness and technical deliverables to enable the realization of complex VR products. Candidates must have keen focus on driving business results, ability to work in ambiguous/less defined environments, and strong willingness to collaborate and optimize overall business objectives.
