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.

The Devices & Technology team within Mixed Reality is responsible for every physical device that Mixed Reality releases to market – from firmware to final hardware.

Our team has people from a wide variety of backgrounds, identities, previous work histories, life experiences, and we are eager to maintain and grow that diversity. Our varied backgrounds and unique experiences enable us to be better at building the best solutions for our customers and make for dynamic and joyful collaborations with colleagues!

If you are passionate about groundbreaking Mixed Reality technology across a variety of form factors, and want to work on a team dedicated to a culture of inclusion, growth mindset and collaboration, we need you!

We are looking for a creative Sr. Mechanical Engineer with strong practical and technical skills to join the device and prototype innovation team. Our team blends talents across wearable mechanical assemblies, optics, electronics and software to prototype our next generation consumer experiences.

A successful candidate will enjoy the challenge of taking an idea from concept to prototype with creativity and teamwork. Starting with ideation you’ll collaborate with end user teams to translate elements of new experiences into requirements for an electro-mechanical device. You will then transform these requirements into something tangible, using prototyping technologies to bring your ideas to life.
