The Concept Assembly Team works with the many product and R&D teams at Reality Labs to rapidly build, scale, and maintain prototype hardware. We provide fast and informed learnings on prototypes ranging from a dozen to several hundred, and we then maintain that prototype hardware for internal use. It is important that we provide experience from past builds across all product lines to inform future designs for existing and emerging products and technologies.

As a manager, you will lead and build a diverse team, developing both the technical capabilities and leadership qualities of the technicians and support roles. You will be a key driver in enabling the team to build, iterate, and test hardware prototypes in the virtual and augmented reality space which combine electronics, mechanics, optics and software. Improving both workflow and communication efficiency across our team and between our cross functional partners should be the driving motivation behind all the work you take on.
