In Mixed Reality, people—not devices—are at the center of everything we do. Our tech moves beyond screens and pixels, creating a new reality aimed at bringing us closer together—whether that’s scientists “meeting” on the surface of a virtual Mars or some yet undreamt-of possibility. To get there, we’re incorporating groundbreaking technologies, from the revolutionary Holographic Processing Unit to computer vision, machine learning, human-computer interaction, and more.

We are looking for a highly motivated Thermal Mechanical Engineer experienced in designing thermal solution for electronic packaging, lasers, sensors, and electronic devices. The successful candidate will have the ability to perform thermal simulation and experimentally validate the thermal solution in addition to leading cross-functional design teams in implementing the thermal architecture. A strong mix of technical breadth and depth is desired to tie electronics, optics, software, and mechanical assemblies into compelling consumer experiences. Two to five years of experience in thermal design of consumer electronics products is required. A track record of innovation and experience in CFD, thermal measurements, simulation, materials, IC packaging to achieve cost targets is required in the successful candidate.


Minimum/Required Qualifications:

  • 3+ years of Product thermal design experience in consumer electronics
  • This position requires access to export-controlled commodities, technical data, technology, software, and services governed by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Due to contractual limitations and ITAR obligations associated with this role, U.S. citizenship, U.S. legal permanent resident status, or protected person status under 8 U.S.C. § 1324b(a)(3) is required.

Additional/Preferred Qualifications:

  • The successful candidate should demonstrate a balance of experimental and theoretical approaches to obtain insight into thermal phenomena and solving problems
  • 3+ years of experience in using Design of Experiments and statistical analysis of experimental data
  • PhD or M.S. in Mechanical Engineering with emphasis on Thermal Design, Heat Transfer or Fluid Dynamics is preferred. B.S. with augmented product experience is also acceptable.
