The Oculus team at Facebook is helping more people around the world come together and connect through world-class VR hardware and software. With global departments dedicated to VR research, computer vision, haptics, social interaction, and more, Oculus is committed to driving the state of the art forward through relentless innovation. VR's potential to change the world is immenseand we're just getting started.
Our Core Tech team explores, develops, and delivers new cutting-edge technologies that serve as the foundation of current and future Oculus products. From mixed reality and human interaction to natural inputs and beyond, Core Tech is focused on taking new technologies from early concept to the product level while iterating, prototyping, and realizing the human value and new experiences they open up.
We are currently seeking innovative researchers and engineers to develop technology and solve complex problems. As a Systems Architect, your job will be to drive and work with groups that are doing research and development for (e.g.) sensors, displays, and compute architectures, aimed at pushing beyond the state of the art for all the core aspects of consumer Virtual Reality (VR) and Mixed Reality (MR) systems. This position requires someone who has expertise working with early technology paths; able to work collaboratively to manage system maturation and risk, and provide clear and effective communication to remove barriers to execution.
Drive development of system requirements to create new virtual experiences, and advance technologies necessary to create product architectures that can deliver these requirements
Engage cross-functionally with other researchers 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 leadership, develop and communicate research and development strategy and status with internal Oculus and Facebook leadership and core research members
Coordinate with Oculus Core Tech team leads to progressively integrate the new technologies into prototype architectures
Facilitate and work with teams to alleviate project bottlenecks
Experience in developing advanced systems with multi-function, multi-disciplinary threads
Communication experience and experience working cross-disciplinary and mentor best practices and team members
Experience managing hardware or device development or rapid prototyping projects
