Meta AR Graphics HW/SW Co-Design Architect in Boston, Massachusetts


Reality Labs (RL), focuses on delivering Meta's vision through Augmented Reality (AR). Compute power requirements of Augmented Reality require custom silicon. The Meta Silicon team is driving the state of the art forward with 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 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 transistors, through architecture, to firmware, and algorithms. We are currently seeking a graphics hardware/software architect to support custom graphics pipeline SW enabling for AR/VR systems. As part of the Graphics Hardware team, the candidate will contribute to the development of HW/SW emulation systems, architecture of profiling tools and GFX SW stack optimization. The ideal candidate for this role will have an excellent grasp of the graphics pipeline, SW/HW emulation, system SW architecture and power/performance profiling and optimization. The candidate should have a demonstrated track record of working on new graphics/display pipeline architectures and/or graphics APIs, developing HW/SW emulation platforms and supporting development of GFX SW and profiling tools. Successful candidates are motivated self-starters who are comfortable operating in a cross-functional environment and have a hands-on approach to problem-solving.

Required Skills:

AR Graphics HW/SW Co-Design Architect Responsibilities:

  1. Work on end-to-end problems and enable GFX HW/SW co-development and optimization around product use cases and system constraints

  2. Closely work with SW teams across the entire graphics stack to enable graphics pipeline features and architect power/performance profiling tools for AR graphics pipeline

  3. Collaborate closely with the graphics, system architecture and SW teams to develop HW/SW emulation platforms for GFX SW stack development

  4. Support all phases of Silicon development from a SW enabling perspective - from early definition on through specification, architecture and productization
