Meta Reality Labs is dedicated to the research and development required to bring virtual and augmented reality to billions of people around the world. At the Reality Labs, we aspire to a vision of social VR and AR, where people can interact with each other across distances in a way that is indistinguishable from in-person interactions.

We are looking for an Engineering Manager – Systems Engineering. The ideal candidate will have a broad engineering background with exposure to multiple engineering disciplines as well as hands-on experience with defining and building new systems. As the Systems Engineering Manager, you will be in charge of building up a team of systems engineers and also defining and implementing a workflow for the development of the next generation of research hardware systems that enable social VR and AR.

You will be responsible for the intake of requirements from researchers and engineers, work with TPM’s to manage program schedules, identify risks and associated mitigation plans, and clearly communicate to program stakeholders. Communication and technical aptitude are critical in this role as you will be the liaison between researchers, operations teams, and electrical/mechanical/firmware/software engineers, and you will assist with determining project priority and feasibility.

This is an intellectually complex and operationally challenging role that will afford the opportunity to lead the development of technologies that have the potential to change the way humans communicate and interact regardless of distance.
