Meta Reality Labs focuses on delivering Meta’s vision through Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). The compute performance and power efficiency requirements of Virtual and Augmented Reality require custom silicon. The Meta Silicon team is driving the state of the art forward with breakthrough work in computer vision, machine learning, mixed reality, graphics, displays, sensors, and new ways to map the human body. Our chips will enable AR and VR devices where our real and virtual world will mix and match throughout the day. We believe the only way to achieve our goals is to look at the entire stack, from transistor, through architecture, to firmware, and algorithms.

We are seeking Embedded Software Engineers to support development of ASICs custom-designed for Meta Reality Labs products. The successful candidate will be part of a team that includes algorithm, user experience, software, firmware and silicon experts. The ideal candidate will understand OS internals and low-level embedded software development for custom low-power SoCs. This is a full-time position.

Experience with embedded software design and programming in C/C++ for development, debugging, testing and performance analysis

4+ years of experience in embedded software development

Experience in understanding hardware, clock-level issues, bridges, delays, interrupts, clock gating, polling etc.

B.S. degree in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering or equivalent experience

Experience building software for complex embedded systems or custom SoCs


Lead firmware design, architecture, and implementation for key components of Meta Reality Labs custom silicon SoCs

Collaborate closely with silicon architects, hardware designers, the OS team, and algorithm and model development teams

Support all phases of SoC development – including early architecture requirements definition for custom silicon, firmware architecture, implementation, simulation, FPGA debug, chip bringup and support systems and software teams on algorithm development on validated systems

End-to-system firmware development to include power-management, boot loaders, scheduling, RTOS and/or bare-metal implementations

Develop OS custom kernel drivers and APIs for hardware accelerators and peripherals

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

Experience with compression, camera and video pipelines, or encoding technologies such as H.264
