At Facebook, we're developing the future of mixed (MR) and augmented reality (AR). We are currently seeking innovative system leads with a passion for working interdisciplinary to develop compelling products that involve maturing technology and solving complex problems. Your job will be to drive and work with groups that are doing research and development for (e.g.) sensors, input, and compute architecture, acting as the technical owner for one or more product architectures, aimed at pushing beyond the state of the art for all the core aspects of consumer MR/AR systems. This position requires someone who has expertise working with early technology paths; able to work collaboratively with non-technical and technical partners, to manage system maturation, requirements, and respective risks; and focused on execution while providing clear and effective communication to remove barriers across the team.
* Positions require a combination of education and experience in the research, development, and integration of advanced systems, which preferably includes systems aimed at capturing/delivering audio and video data streams
Drive development of system requirements to create new augmented and mixed reality experiences, and advance technologies necessary to create product architectures that can deliver these requirements
Engage cross-functionally with other researchers, management, and engineers to develop concepts that advance the entire product pipeline (hardware, software, integration, infrastructure, and applications)
Work closely with various organizations to define and execute the long-term roadmaps
Coordinate with our research, partnership, legal and incubation teams to both define and execute technology development with key partners, suppliers and academic institutions
Along with research and development leadership, communicate technology and product strategy effectively to both internal and external stakeholders
Coordinate with team leads to progressively integrate the new technologies into prototype architectures
Facilitate and work with teams to alleviate project bottlenecks
* MS degree, in Engineering, Physics, Computer Science or equivalent
At least 6 years of experience in research or advanced development
Experience in developing advanced systems with multi-function/multi-disciplinary threads
Interpersonal communication experience. Experience working cross-disciplinary and mentor best practices and team members
Experience managing hardware development or rapid prototyping projects
