Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.


Facebook Reality Labs focuses on connecting people through Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). The compute performance and power efficiency requirements of these products require custom silicon. The Facebook Agile Silicon Team (FAST) is driving the state-of-the-art forward with breakthroughs in computer vision, machine learning, mixed reality, graphics, displays, sensors, and new ways to map the human body. We believe the only way to achieve our goals is to look at the entire stack, from transistor, to architecture, firmware, and algorithms.We are looking for an experienced engineer to drive architectural advancements to our framework for capturing a single source of truth for our designs, and collaborate with our researchers and engineers to develop and deploy this technology. We apply this framework at the block, subsystem and SoC levels to automate the generation of consistent design, modeling, verification, synthesis and firmware views of our optimized mixed reality IP. The ideal candidate will understand the full spectrum of design and verification choices when tackling integration aspects of heterogeneous SoCs. Beyond connectivity, the candidate will contribute to the specification, deployment and the evangelization of generator methodologies across all of FAST.

  2. Evangelization of generator methodology across all HW teams.

  3. Hands-on development to enable HW architecture, micro-architecture, design, physical implementation, prototyping, performance analysis/optimization, and testing for multiple projects.

  4. Work cross-functionally with SoC architecture, Modeling, FW, Prototyping and IP development teams.

Minimum Qualifications:

  1. BS in CS/EE or equivalent relevant experience.

  2. 3+ years of experience integrating SoCs or complex IP-based subsystems as a Silicon Architect, Digital Design Engineer, or NoC Architect.

  3. Experience in employing scientific methods to debug, diagnose and drive the resolution of cross-disciplinary design issues.

  4. Experience automating design-oriented tasks.

  5. Experience with a programming or scripting language such as Python.
