The Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) Display and Optics team focuses on moving the state-of-art display and optical technologies forward for Facebook AR/VR products, which gives people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. The team is responsible for technology development and maturation, component design, novel manufacturing processes and metrology development, and system integration of display and optics for all Facebook AR/VR products.We are looking for an image quality engineer who can bring together the disparate simulation models of the component parts of our image chain, and employ this end-to-end pipeline in a continuous feedback loop to optimize product image quality requirements against system constraints.
Work cross-functionally with silicon, graphics, perception and display teams to implement pipeline models, and to simulate end-to-end performance of our image pipeline using those models
Implement system simulations of pipeline components using a mixture of C/C++ and MATLAB
Validating simulations with unit tests and perceptual metrics
Using simulation results to propose improvements to aspects of the pipeline, and verification of those improvements by modeling and human factors testing
Perform tradeoff analyses against visual quality metrics
Bachelors/Masters degree or equivalent experience, in image processing, displays or optics, or related field
Proficiency in both C/C++ and MATLAB
Experience in taking image-based (e.g. camera, printer, display) products to market
Understanding of typical image processing algorithms and SW/HW implementation through the entire pipeline
Experience in managing production-level tradeoffs required in typical image pipelines
Experience in working as part of a cross-functional team and familiarity with typical software/hardware design processes
A solid understanding of the human visual system, color science and perceptual aspects
Experience in human factors testing and psychometric testing paradigms
Background in developing custom image processing silicon
Prior experience in display systems, especially AR/VR
Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.
