The Meta Reality Labs (RL) Audio Team is looking for an enthusiastic, hands-on Audio Electrical Engineer. The successful candidate will be an instinctive engineer who involves their head, heart, hands, and ears in the design process. We are looking for meaningful experience in all aspects of consumer product audio system design - from building up early proof-of-concept technologies, product development and testing, through to production readiness. The ideal engineer employs data driven design, objective and subjective audio evaluation, and a common sense mindset to complex engineering challenges. The best fit for the role will be a gregarious communicator who is able to describe audio activities in a clear and concise manner, relating qualitative experience to quantitative data. The points below describe an example of a strong candidate, however we highly value motivation, work-ethic and enthusiasm. If you don't fit this profile but believe are right for this position, we still want to hear from you.
