Facebook's Connectivity Team is looking for strong subject matter experts to design, implement and deploy future novel communication technologies. To be successful at this role you must have engineering fundamentals to draw on and possess deep understanding of communication and electronic systems. You will be surrounded by top notch engineers and they expect you to be able to keep up with them. The engineer will be responsible for understanding product definition and specifications, evaluate, develop and characterize communication systems using off-the-shelf integrated and discrete components. You will be responsible for system design, integration, debug and bring up in the lab and the field with a vision and clear path on transitioning the product to high volume manufacturing. Understanding and balancing the engineering trade-offs between performance, cost, lead-time and manufacturability is key.


  • Deep technical understanding of Analog/Digital Circuit Design (including processor, FPGA, memory, ADC/DAC, interconnects, power distribution, digital interfaces, printed circuit boards, embedded systems, power/signal integrity etc.)

Solid understanding of signal integrity optimization on high speed digital interfaces, familiarity with SerDes design, equalization, and experience with industry SI simulation tools

Timing/clocking distribution system design, PLL design, analysis (example - IEEE 1588, Sync-E)

Solid understanding of embedded systems, familiarity with device drivers and firmware configuration

Ability to make performance/features vs cost/manufacturability tradeoffs regarding layout, BoM, and placement

Broad understanding of thermal, mechanical, and SW requirements and issues related to digital/analog subsystem integration into the overall product

Ability to work cross-functionally with RF/Antenna, ME and Software engineers

Energy and drive to work in a startup environment, and be a team player

Detail oriented and diligent, balanced with rapid execution in a fast-paced environment


  • BS in Electrical Engineering or a related technical discipline with a minimum of 4 years of experience or graduate degree with minimum 4 years experience

Minimum 4 years experience with mixed signal circuit design, component selection, schematic design

Knowledge of power supply design, power integrity measurements, optimizations, and experience with industry PI simulation tools

Hands-on experience with system bring-up in the lab and factory, and subsystem verification

Experience with standard test equipment (logic analyzers, network analyzers, scopes, spectrum analyzers, etc.)


  • Experience with large volume production issues and techniques (REL, DFM, DFT, OPS, Procurement)

VIEW JOBS 11/12/2018 12:00:00 AM 2019-02-10T00:00 Facebook Reality Labs, or FRL, focuses on delivering Facebook's vision through Augmented Reality (AR). Compute power requirements of Augmented Reality require custom silicon. Facebook 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 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. The word 'proto' means original, primitive, first; anterior; relating to a precursor and so does this role! Our team is working closely with the best AR algorithm engineers to create first of its kind silicon. The only way we can build the "right" thing, is to quickly iterate on non-form-factor implementation. Our proto team puts the designs in a system, before, during, and after, the design is complete. A successful candidate will be positioned in the center of algorithm, software, design, and verification. RESPONSIBILITIES * Develop prototyping and emulation strategy, including vendor and tool selection, capacity planning, and flows setup Work closely with algorithm engineers, software engineers, architects and designers to quickly prototype new systems and features Work closely with software and design verification engineers to assist software development and hardware verification for new systems MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS * Bachelor's degree with 5+ years of experience or Masters with 4+ years of experience or PhD with 1+ years of experience, in an Engineering field Knowledge in SystemVerilog for design and verification, scripting languages such as Python, and C/CPP Experience with FPGA and/or emulation platforms Experience with lab system debug with logic analyzers, scopes, meters, etc. PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS * Chip architecture, µArchitecture, design and design verification experience Performance modeling and evaluation Knowledge of OS kernel and experience in driver development Familiarity with IO's such as MIPI CSI & DSI, USB, PCIE, LPDDR Capable of dealing with ambiguity with a fast changing consumer electronics field Results oriented, self-motivated, proactive with demonstrated creative & critical thinking Works effectively as an individual and in a multidisciplinary international team Facebook Menlo Park CA
