Nanofab Process Engineer (9592136)

Oculus is a world leader in the design of virtual and augmented reality systems. Come work alongside world-class research scientists and engineers creating the technology that makes VR and AR pervasive and universal. Join the adventure of a lifetime as we make science fiction real and change the world.

We are currently seeking a Process Engineer with expertise in nanofabrication technology. The engineer will work closely with our team of Optical Scientists and Nanofabrication Research staff to drive the scale-up of novel near-eye display process technology. The position is a full-time regular position requiring a BS or Masters in materials science, chemistry, chemical engineering, physics, or similar engineering degree. This position combines both internal development activities and responsibility for driving external engagements in the area of AR Optics. Candidates with experience developing processes leveraging external partnerships are preferred. Specifically, candidates should have experience developing commercialization pathways supporting pilot scale production, establishing specifications on tools and materials, coordinating process development, and applying working knowledge in the associated metrology and analytical techniques. Candidates must be comfortable working in a dynamic cross-functional team and exhibit excellent interpersonal communication skills.


  • Transfer and optimization of process recipes, designs, and operational methods to pilot tools
  • Development of processes on one or more of the following tools/sectors: Front end cleaning/prep, litho, deposition, etch, imprint and metrology
  • Optimize processes to achieve necessary repeatability, cycle time, yield and capacity to meet planned goals and milestones
  • Work closely with the research staff to identify optimized tool and material pathways
  • Establish relationships with tool and material suppliers enabling pilot-scale fabrication
  • Build collaborative relationships both internally and externally to support research initiatives
  • Develop SOPs and train technicians in the proper and safe use of sector tools
  • Support daily and weekly PM activities
  • Support equipment engineering with repair activities
  • Perform design of experiments (DOE) to quantify process window
  • Identify key process metrics and control methodologies to maintain process health
  • Document and monitor all necessary process characterization and control data
  • Use formal problem-solving tools to drive continuous improvement in process capability and to identify/implement root cause solutions to deviations

Must Haves:

  • Intermediate-Senior level engineer with 5-7 years of experience in the Lithography space (this can be a combination of industry and academic experience. For example, a candidate with 2 years of industry experience and 3 years of academic experience in the Lithography space).
  • 3+ years experience in nanofabrication production environment
  • 3+ years in a clean room environment
  • 1+ years of experience conducting process engineering in a manufacturing environment
  • Design of experiments (DOE) methodology
  • Data analysis experience and familiarity with analysis software(e.g. Jmp, MatLab, Tableau, Excel, MiniTab)
  • Problem solving and continuous improvement using formal tools (fishbone diagrams, 8D or model-based problem solving, statistical process control (SPC), )
  • Ability to accurately document procedures and experimental/process data
  • Ideal candidate‚Äôs background will have an emphasis in patterning and Lithography
  • This can include: Photo Lithography, Ink Jet Lithography, Nano Imprint Lithography, etc.

Nice to Haves:

  • Understanding of optics and associated process
  • Six Sigma Blackbelt
  • Coding and scripting experience (e.g. SQL, Python, Java, HTML)


  • BS or Masters in material science, chemical engineering, chemistry, physics or equivalent field
