Concept Design – Mechanical Engineer ContractorFacebook Reality LabsSeattleAs a Mechanical Engineer within the multidisciplinary Concept Design Team, you will employ your expertise in problem solving and prototyping to accelerate product development across Facebook’s hardware organization. You will collaborate with teams within Hardware Engineering, Research and Development, and Industrial Design. These projects cover a wide variety of technical challenges unique to Facebook’s hardware portfolio, including Oculus, Portal, and beyond. This role requires expertise in both designing and building functional prototypes, including proficiency in integrated design, CAD, rapid prototyping and fabrication processes as well as a thorough understanding of when and how to implement the appropriate processes to provide robust applied solutions. You will work at every stage of the hardware lifecycle with a particular focus on concept ideation and early-to-mid stage development.You must be able to work with minimal guidance, demonstrate a high attention to detail, be partnership-oriented and possess strong problem-solving skills. You must be a self-starter, well-organized and have excellent communication skills.RESPONSIBILITIES1. Collaborate with Industrial Design, Engineering and Research teams to identify and solve complex design and UX challenges, employing mechanical and electro-mechanical design and fabrication skills2. Design and build prototypes to the appropriate level of fidelity, considering product requirements goals, and constraints with an outlook on how prototyping decisions translate into production3. Effectively employ computer aided design (CAD), sketching, and prototyping to clearly communicate design ideas and concept directions4. Drive large scale integrated project work and establish achievable schedule and interim milestones for team members to deliver against project requirements5. Communicate constraints, progress, and other critical project information to partner teams6. Leverage both internal and external manufacturing resources to produce deliverables to an appropriate level of fidelity7. Design and finish concepts to rigorous cosmetic / aesthetic requirements8. Ability to execute multiple streams of work simultaneously and independently balance and prioritize project workload to ensure success against timeline constraintsMINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS1. Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent experience2. At least 3 years of experience in a hands-on Engineering/Design role in a multi-disciplinary team with experience in consumer electronics and product development3. Experience executing at a systems-level and working across a cross-functional organization including Engineering, Industrial Design, Research, etc.4. Experience designing prototypes with feasibility for high-volume manufacturing in mind5. Hands-on experience and knowledge of prototype development processes, including: rapid prototyping, 3D printing, CNC machining, molding, casting, electrical prototyping, electromechanical integration6. CAD experience (NX, SolidWorks, Fusion 360, Rhino,), including design of complex mechanical systems, integration of electrical assemblies and manipulation of complex ID surface geometry7. Experience working closely with Electrical Engineering, with an understanding of how to prototype and integrate PCBs and electrical assemblies into mechanical systemsPREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS1. 3 – 5 years of end-to-end integrated product development experience, including early-stage conceptual design, detailed design for manufacturing and assembly, late-stage mass production experience, overseas manufacturing and assembly2. Experience leading a multidisciplinary product engineering team, with oversight into mechanical, electrical, and firmware workstreams and integration between disciplines3. Experience with tolerancing techniques and rigorous precision design requirements in optics, machine design, motion control, mechanisms4. Systems-level engineering experience with complex integrated electromechanical assemblies5. Experience with working models with rigorous cosmetic and aesthetic requirements, production-level finishes6. Understanding of Facebook products and technologies7. Familiarity with camera modules and optical systems8. Mass-production experience with overseas manufacturing facilities9. Experience in NX CAD modeling system, and Team Center PDM
