Off-cycle Internship

Software Engineering, DesignSunnyvale


  • Meta Reality Labs (RL) is the world leader in the design of virtual and augmented reality systems. The RL Silicon Research Team is looking for exceptional interns to help us create the next-generation experiences in virtual and augmented reality. Our Silicon research and development focuses on exploring new circuit design techniques, architectures and technologies for future AR products. We are looking for students interested in optimizing integrated circuits and systems, including novel implementation, and/or new emerging technologies. The ideal candidate will understand the full stack from architecture down to hardware and technology.


  • Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a PhD degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or related field.
  • 1+ years experience in SoC low-power design and architecture methodologies.
  • 1+ years experience in circuit design and low power techniques using conventional EDA tools.
  • Interpersonal skills: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration.
  • Must obtain work authorization in the country of employment at the time of hire and maintain ongoing work authorization during employment.
  • Preferred Qualifications:
  • Intent to return to degree-program after the completion of the internship/co-op.
  • Proven track record of achieving significant results as demonstrated by grants, fellowships, patents, as well as first-authored publications at leading workshops or conferences such as ISSCC, VLSI Symposium, ESSCIRC or similar.
  • Engineering experience via internships, work experience, coding competitions, chip tape outs.
