Oculus is looking for world-class Hardware Researcher with excellent communication and people skills. As a Hardware Researcher at Oculus, you must be an expert researcher with a proven track record of influencing the hardware design of complex and diverse products. While the role will initially focus on near-term research, we are looking for candidates with experience in generative, iterative and evaluative projects – you must be familiar with every aspect of the product development lifecycle including up-front research and discovery, definition, and analysis of requirements. You must become a trusted, strategic partner to product stakeholders by delivering actionable insights that lead to demonstrable business value. To this end, you will be required to articulate the findings from your research to design, engineering and product leadership and be a strong advocate for the role of research in product development. You must be a data expert, but also be able to be creative and develop new methodologies for emerging technologies such as VR. It's not enough to answer interesting questions about user behavior; our team focuses on impact. We value the ability to translate observations about user behavior into actionable insights. The Hardware Researcher is a full-time position in Seattle, reporting into the User Experience organization. However, you must also build strong relationships with other teams in different locations such as Menlo Park and London.
