As an Opto-Mechanical Engineer at Facebook Reality labs, you will help design, develop, and integrate state-of-the-art precision instrumentation for metrology, lithography, and imaging. You will be part of a team exploring new optical concepts producing research tools and prototypes integrating elements such as lasers, polarization optics, precision mechanisms, motion control, advanced sensors, and software. You may be part of multiple cross functional teams with specialists from many areas including electronics, mechanics, optics, firmware, and software. We want people who work well in teams, can brainstorm big ideas, are comfortable working in new and underdefined technology areas, and are able to drive a concept into a functioning hardware system. We are looking for a hands-on builder of opto-mechanical systems that can deal with sub-micron tolerances, create novel solutions, and clearly communicate across disciplines.
Contribute to opto-mechanical engineering efforts in a cross-functional team environment.
Brainstorm new system architectures and help the team converge on feasible Opto-Mechanical designs.
Build, test, and refine opto-mechanical prototypes and custom high precision test fixtures.
Create and refine system concepts that meet demanding schedule and performance targets.
Help solve complex opto-mechanical system problems by inventing and integrating state-of-the-art technologies and methods.
BS or higher in Engineering, Physics, Optics or equivalent experience.
3+ years of experience working in an engineering environment.
Experience with mechanical, optical, and computational modeling software (Examples are SOLIDWORKS, Zemax, and MATLAB).
Experience assembling and aligning custom benchtop optical and mechanical prototypes.
Experience leading the assembly and alignment of opto-mechanical benchtop assemblies containing lasers, lenses, motion stages, and instrument controllers.
Exposure or direct experience with mechanical and optics metrology devices such as CMM, OMM, and interferometry.
Knowledge of optical component mounting, interfaces, and adhesive bonding.
Experience programming with basic hardware automation software (Examples are Python, and LabVIEW).
