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

RLR is looking for a talented Electrical Engineer to accelerate the progression to authentic social presence in virtual reality. In our current pipeline, a multitude of sensing components, including image sensors, microphones, and inertial measurement units are installed on the headset prototypes in order to collect a rich suite of information that reflects the user’s physical state, with an emphasis on modality synchronicity and latency minimization; this information is then processed by our state-of-the-art algorithms to allow for a computational representation of the user.

The ideal candidate for this position will be experienced in prototyping vision and audio capture system, circuit simulation and modeling, schematics capture, and layout design involving high-speed digital systems, flexes and programmable logic, as well as the use of multi-GHz digital test equipment; a working knowledge of industry-standard differential signaling and communication protocols would also be crucial. You will work in a dynamic cross-functional team including electrical, mechanical, and software engineers, as well as design and research experts. Strong communication and interpersonal skills are required.
