The Opportunity

The Product Development and Engineering roles are core of Magic Leap's revolutionary AR capabilities. These highly collaborative teams are responsible for our organization's engineering and technical operations, performing cutting-edge and complex scientific research and development that is 'defined as we build' to create new AR products, features, and marketplaces. Activities include undertaking research, design, development, and implementation activities to improve Magic Leap's AR products and services; designing, constructing, testing, and operating equipment; ensuring that standards of quality, cost, safety, reliability, timeliness, and performance are met in production processes; interpreting plans, drawings, and specifications; and collaborating across all Magic Leap teams to ensure our AR product and features provide a high-quality, immersive experience, meeting and exceeding our customer's needs and our business objectives.

As a Staff Optical Design Engineer, you will formulate processes that facilitate the testing and optimization of optical components and systems that enable the projection of virtual images in augmented reality (AR) devices. Apply advanced knowledge of optical systems and test methods to design and develop new innovative optical system components. Drive a collaborative environment that fosters engineering excellence, creativity, and innovation in the interdisciplinary areas of optical design and testing, display technologies, and image processing.

This position is based at our site in Boulder, Co or remote.
