Meta Reality Labs focuses on moving state-of-art display and optical technologies forward for Meta’s AR/VR products. The team is responsible for developing and maturing technologies for component design, novel manufacturing processes, metrology, and system integration.

The Optical Product Development team is looking for a creative Optical Systems Engineer to develop and lead new optical module development for Meta products. You will work cross-functionally with electrical, mechanical, display, sensor, and other optics teams to ensure the performance and realization of optical products.


BS in Engineering, Physics, Optics, Computer Science or equivalent work experience.

6+ years of experience in developing systems with multi-function/multi-disciplinary threads.

6+ years experience and knowledge of optics one or more of the following: systems design and integration, imaging, illumination, radiometry and photometry, physical and geometric optics, statistics, and polarization.

Experience in optical and sensor system design maturation, including requirement development from physical based modeling, and knowledge of fabrication/vendor processes.

Experience in one or more system optimization and analysis tools, such as MATLAB, C++, or Java.


Cross-functional engagement with internal and external partners to develop concepts and prototypes into realizable product hardware designs.

Define sub-system requirements with the product team, then deliver AR/VR hardware, software, and calibration that meets specifications. This may include: hardware (optics, electronics, mechanics, silicon, sensor, data-communication), software (computer vision algorithms, calibration, modeling, analysis), and performance analysis.

Drive optical system requirements definitions. Flow down optical system requirements to sub-system and component level. Resolve requirements discrepancies at different levels.

Drive design verification, testing, and troubleshooting process to correlate with optical modeling and metrology, and between sub-system performance and system performance.

Support TPMs in evaluation, validation, and delivery to specs by metrology, user studies, safety studies, FMEA analysis, environmental analysis, and dogfooding.

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

PhD in the field of Optical Engineering, Physics, Electrical Engineering or related degree.

10+ years of experience in research or advanced optics development.

Experience with multiple full life cycle product launches.

Experience with 3D tracking methods, algorithms, devices and systems.

Experience with design/manufacturing of small form-factor sensing or imaging systems.

Process development experience for optical parts, sensors, computer vision, software and hardware integration.

Experience developing manufacturing process(es) for coatings, molding, replication, diamond-turning.

Rapid prototyping experience (i.e. 3D printing, laser cutting, etc.).

Experience in opto-mechanical integration and system design.

Experience developing new concepts and technologies for Near-Eye Display (NED) and sensor systems.
