Facebook AR/VR Silicon - Veterans Engineering Program in Menlo Park, California


Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.


Facebook AR/VR Teams focus on delivering Facebook's vision through Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). The compute performance and power efficiency requirements of Virtual and Augmented Reality require custom silicon. Facebook Agile Silicon Team (FAST) is driving state of the art, breakthrough work in computer vision, machine learning, mixed reality, graphics, displays, sensors, and new ways to map the human body. Our chips will enable AR & VR devices where our real and virtual world will mix and match throughout the day. We believe the only way to achieve our goals is to look at the entire stack, from transistor, through architecture, to firmware and algorithms.We are excited to offer a new career development program to grow our AR/VR Silicon team. We are seeking engineers, who are military veterans at all levels, to work with a world-class group of researchers and engineers in Silicon/ASIC/VLSI, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, Security, Audio, Signal Processing, and more. You will support Silicon team members in developing and implementing the next generation custom and semi-custom mixed signal ICs to drive our industry leading virtual and augmented reality systems. Military spouses may also apply.This is a 12 month program with two rotations in AR/VR Silicon Team. Once the program concludes, participants can apply and interview for open FTE roles within the greater team.Program start date is February 18, 2020.This role can be based in Redmond, WA or Menlo Park, CA.
