As an Integration FPGA Engineer at Facebook Reality Labs Research, you will design, build, and test prototype electrical systems for future consumer mixed reality products/experiences. You will become part of a cross-functional team exploring new concepts through fast iterative prototyping. The team will typically include electrical, mechanical, optical, firmware, software, and research experts. We are looking for people who work well across disciplines, can brainstorm big ideas, work in new technology areas, are able to drive a concept into a prototype, and foremost excel in co-developing software/hardware systems.

You will be creating prototype systems that use existing FPGA modules and interfaces as well as new RTL you develop. These prototypes will be full-stack and entail multiple layers from hardware design to RTL design to firmware to system software interfaces. You will use your multi-disciplinary expertise to integrate FPGA systems together into fully formed prototypes. You will work with experts in hardware, software, and firmware systems development to create a complete prototype system.

We are looking for someone who is comfortable debugging hardware interfaces to sensors and cameras one day and the next day creating simple Python/C++ demos using existing APIs. You will be taking pieces of SW, FW, and RTL from other engineers, enhancing them, and using them in new ways to improve our ability to make prototypes faster. We’ve created infrastructure for rapidly deploying FPGA-based systems. You will grow that infrastructure to improve our FPGA/SW systems integration capabilities over time.
