Mechanical Engineer, Audio

Infrastructure | Redmond, WA

As a Mechanical Engineer at Oculus Research, you will develop state of the art prototype structures, mechanisms, and solutions for next generation audio devices. You will become part of a team exploring new concepts through analytical modeling and fast iterative prototyping. A wide range of approaches will be explored combining electrical, mechanical, acoustic, firmware, and software techniques. We want people who work well in teams; can brainstorm big ideas; work in new technology areas; able to drive a concept into a prototype; and can envision how a prototype could transition into a high-volume consumer product. Starting with a broad scientific background, be willing to become a quick expert in a new area, and quickly build new prototypes using novel materials and/or by integrating structures in new ways leveraging a strong mechanical background. We’re looking for a hands-on builder of acoustic-mechanical systems that can work well in a fast-paced, multidisciplinary research environment.


  • Lead Mechanical Engineering activities in a cross-functional team environment.
  • Ownership of the mechanical design of prototype audio systems.
  • Model, build, test, and refine prototypes.
  • Active participation and leadership, providing peer guidance and planning in mechanical engineering.

Minimum Qualifications

  • BS in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent experience
  • 5+ years experience working on design for acoustic devices
  • Test and analysis experience (FEM, Simulation, etc.)
  • Experience with manufacturing techniques (Machining, 3D printing, injection molding, etc.)
  • Experience in 3D design modeling and physical prototyping

Preferred Qualifications

  • 10+ years of product design, prototyping and R&D experience.
  • Experience in consumer electronics product development.
  • Experience with SolidWorks 3D modeling software.
  • Knowledge of acoustic transducers, microphones, and test equipment.
  • Knowledge of structural vibration, physical acoustics.
