Facebook Test Engineering Lead in Redmond, Washington


The Hardware Test Engineering Lead applies the highest level of skill and knowledge of Optical Electro-mechanical systems in designing and implementing test architecture for AR products. As a key part of the AR hardware product development team, you will drive the conceptual test design in early product exploration stages and implement in the lab for test validation. You will lead the deployment of hardware test systems for design verification (DVE) as well as building out test infrastructure for NPI builds once concept design is well proven. You will be leading the troubleshooting of station hardware/software issues on test equipment and systems. You will also lead overall product test strategy, evaluate test equipment and qualification processes based on production metrics, and lead and facilitate integration of test systems into data tracking networks and factory control systems. The ideal candidate is a self-driven individual working in a cross-functional team environment and will be responsible for planning the design, development, and implementation of both development and factory test systems. You will enforce manufacturability, testability and ensure cost-effective designs are implemented for testing and automation systems, software, and equipment.
