The Meta Reality Labs Research (RLR) team is building products that make it easier for people to connect with the ones they love most. Meta RL Research focuses on delivering Meta’s vision through Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) products. The RL Research team is driving the state-of-the-art forward with breakthrough work in machine learning, graphics, displays, sensors, and new ways to map the human body.

As a TPM for the Sensors and Systems Research Team (SSR), your focus will be exploring and delivering breakthrough solutions (hardware, software and systems) for computer vision and photographic image sensors. You will be a part of an innovative team working to create novel image sensors, custom compute, signal processing algorithms and sensing systems architectures.

With the development of new silicon with customized silicon IP, to be successful, you will be eliminating barriers to your team’s success, clearly communicating results to all stakeholders and ensuring the big picture stays in focus while delving into the details on specific issues. Ideal team members are adaptable and resilient, eager to attack unfamiliar problems with curiosity and tenacity, and able to use a light touch to find ways to help the team be more efficient.


Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or equivalent combination of education and experience.

8+ years experience in the design and development of new silicon chips and IP in the consumer electronics industry.

8+ years of technical program management experience interfacing internal and external partners.

Experience in the design and development of silicon for mobile systems.

Interest in being a great communicator. Versatility in presenting and facilitating to all levels of the organization technical and non-technical content.

Project management, leadership, dependency management and cross-group collaboration experience across more than one geographic location.

Experience working with a cross-disciplinary team of researchers, software engineers, silicon and hardware engineers.

Understanding of sensor and semiconductor device manufacturing, testing, integration, and experience in delivering high volume silicon for system integration.

Experience communicating program status to key cross-functional stakeholders and leadership.


Contribute to the definition of new programs schedules, deliverables and milestones definition. Interact with Systems Research Team program leaders, Meta Business units and external vendors for contract definition and budget negotiation.

Own program management strategy and execution for new image sensor silicon development from concept to mass production.

Manage the design, development, and delivery of custom IP from concept to system validation in collaboration with external vendors and foundries.

Work with a cross-functional team of silicon, hardware engineers, software engineers and PMs to set clear deliverables milestones, create integration plans, and identify risks with mitigation plans to deliver sensor solutions.

Work with research and production engineering teams on IP development and technology transfer.

Build and maintain strong working relationships across the Sensors and Systems Research team and cross-functional leadership.

Develop schedules, identify critical paths and bottlenecks and maintain execution throughout the duration of programs.

Work cross-functionally to develop best practices and technology development processes in a quickly-changing and dynamic environment to ensure on time delivery.

Ensure program documents are complete, current and available for staff and leadership review.

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

Understanding of sensors, optoelectronics and semiconductor device manufacturing, characterization, packaging, and camera module integration.

Understanding of silicon prototyping and validation using FPGAs and emulators.

Experience working in a high risk, fast-paced research environment, driving custom silicon programs where no predecessor chip exists.

Experience in new technology development, comfortable with unknowns, ambiguity and risk taking.

Experience with technology transfer from a research team to production.

Experience managing a multi-generational silicon program.
