At reality labs we aim to bring together the brightest cross-disciplinary minds in one place to deliver on our mission: build tools that help people feel connected, anytime, anywhereAs a firmware engineer, you will architect, design, build and test firmware systems for future ar, vr, or new technology teamsYou will join a world-class team of experts exploring new concepts through rapid prototypingFirmware engineering for rl’s device systems spans multiple target classes, requiring deep collaboration across engineering disciplines (electrical, mechanical, optical, firmware and software) and directly impacting user immersionOur ideal candidate wants to quickly solve problems, generate big ideas, work in new technology areas, drive concepts into prototypes, and envision how those prototypes transition to high-volume consumer productsIn this role, you are expected to participate in the definition of architecture and implementation of architecture in both prototype and shipping consumer products as well as demonstrate good development practices and seamless collaboration.
Firmware engineer, reality labs responsibilities:
Analyze, design, develop, and debug firmware for a wide variety of ar and vr consumer devices, including novel sensing and imaging systems, haptic devices, and audio prototypes
Understand and implement power-management, boot loaders, scheduling, and rtos
Collaborate in a team environment across multiple , product focused, research, and engineering disciplines, making the architectural tradeoffs required to rapidly deliver firmware solutions
Support all phases of soc/asic development – including early architecture requirements definition for custom silicon, firmware architecture, implementation, simulation, fpga debug, chip bring up and support systems and software teams on algorithm development on validated systems
Understand and drive implementation of fw development good practices across teams and projects
