Job Description:

Come join a rapidly growing team as an Optical Engineer in Meta Reality Labs. You will be responsible for design, testing and productizing optical systems and sub-components that are core to delivering transformative experiences in Oculus AR/VR products. You will join an agile team that is laser-focused on releasing imaging optics systems and sub-components that are fully hardened for high-volume manufacturing. We are seeking an engineer experienced with design and evaluation of imaging optics systems and sub-components; able to work collaboratively with cross-functional teams and focused on execution while providing clear and effective communication to remove barriers across teams.

Optical Engineer Responsibilities:

  • Conceptualize, design, develop, validate, prototype and develop imaging optics systems and sub-components for our current and next generation AR/VR products.

  • Design camera lenses for eye tracking and face tracking applications and perform sequential and non-sequential ray tracing to optimize lens and system performance.

  • Establish and document optical engineering specifications, including key performance metrics and test requirements for optical systems and components, through rigorous systems modeling to understand the customer-facing requirements and lens tolerance analysis based on assessing manufacturing capabilities.

  • Lead design validation, lab characterization and failure analysis of optical components and systems.

  • Drive the vendor for maturity in optical process, performance, yield, quality, reliability, and ramp new optical components and systems for full mass production readiness.

  • Contribute to the future optics technology roadmap.

  • Ability to operate in heavily cross functional and ambiguous work environments.

  • Ability to work independently as well as collaboratively with internal cross-functional teams and with overseas vendors.

  • 25% domestic and international travel.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • BS in the field of physics, optical engineering, engineering or other optics-related fields or equivalent work experience.

  • 5+ years of experience in optical engineering.

  • Experience with optics fundamentals including lens design, aberration theory, image quality, illumination, radiometry and colorimetry, and experience with tolerance and thermal analysis.

  • Knowledge of optical grade plastic and glass materials, and various optical fabrication processes such as injection molding, grinding and polishing, precision glass molding and wafer level optics.

  • Hands-on experience using optical instruments such as white light/phase shift interferometer, spectrophotometer, scatterometer, and Image Master type MTF tester, etc.

  • Experience in Zemax and/or CodeV and experience with at least one non-sequential optical CAD (eg: Zemax, LightTools, Fred, ASAP).

  • Experience in programming languages such as Python, MATLAB, or C++ .

  • Experience with large quantity data analysis and visualization.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Advanced degree (MS or PhD) in the field of Optical Engineering, Physics, Electrical Engineering or related degree.

  • 5+ years of experience in research or advanced optics development.

  • Experience with polarization optics, thin films (ARC, IRCF and bandpass filter) and NIR optics.

  • Experience in de-bugging and failure analysis of optical systems including knowledge of typical failure analysis equipment.

  • Experience with eye tracking technology or related fields and/or experience in developing optical systems for machine vision and computer vision applications.

  • Experience in taking high volume optical products from concept phase to shipping phase in the consumer electronics industry and proven experience in developing optical systems with multi-disciplinary teams.
