Meta’s Simulation team models and simulates the real-world conditions and scenarios under which our products must perform. We provide the objective, physics-based analysis that enables our engineering development partners to design with confidence. The goal of our team is to minimize program risk, improve product performance, and reduce development cycles through systematic design optimization. We accomplish this through the rigorous application of engineering fundamentals and validate our guidance through empirical testing.

We are looking for a technically-savvy and experienced people manager to lead and grow our team of highly accomplished structural design and analysis engineers. The ideal candidate will be committed to fostering a collaborative and inclusive work environment where every team member is empowered to leverage their strengths in order to deliver their best impact. They will also demonstrate strong communication skills, the capacity to connect meaningfully with their direct reports, and the skill with which to drive consensus and collaboration across functional organizations.
