Job Description

The Systems Engineering department is searching for an interdisciplinary Senior Systems Engineer to join the core team responsible for the architecting the current and future mixed reality products. The ideal candidate is a highly interdisciplinary hands-on engineer focused on rapidly implementing new analysis methods to tie complex hardware/software/content systems together, deriving requirements, articulating interfaces, and working with discipline experts to architect Magic Leap’s complex mixed reality consumer products.


  • Derive and articulate architectures, interfaces, and requirements for mixed reality products.
  • Articulate then drive trade-off analysis between competing system components.
  • Understand first principles of novel technologies, analyse applicability to mixed reality and articulate game-changing architectures that are enabled by these technologies.
  • Perform first order error propagation or sensitivity analysis within complex interconnected systems.
  • Derive overall design and engineering requirements for product from prototype systems.
  • Extend existing prototype and production systems to enhance feature set, empirically quantify performance, and empirically test viability of concepts.
  • Work within the systems engineering team to support organization-wide requirements elicitation, management, translation between disciplines and customers, and documentation.
  • Collaborate across disciplines to design validation and verification tests of the system requirements, and carry out these tests to reach written conclusions.
  • Closely interact with human factors, electronics, machine vision, optical, mechanical, content, and software organizations to derive, validate, and subsequently verify system features and performance through system tests.


  • Exceptional written and verbal communications skills
  • Ideal candidates have the cross functional skill set of the roboticist (mechanical, electrical, software, algorithms, sensors, controls, mathematics, trade offs, etc.)
  • Demonstrated ability to quickly grasp first principles in new disciplines (hardware or software) and ability to block-diagram out the underlying architecture and interfaces (to aid co-optimization and communication between coupled sub-systems).
  • Demonstrated proficiency communicating complex, often novel concepts in graphical form (drawings, graphs, block diagrams, timing diagrams, flow charts, etc.)
  • Ability to comfortably operate in the current product regime (i.e. large scale manufacturing, testing, verification, integration, etc.) as well as the research regime to aid future products development (i.e. requirements, architecture, trade studies, first principles analysis etc.)
  • Proficient in mathematical modelling/analysis (mechanical, electrical, optical systems, etc.)
  • Proficient in analysis packages (MATLAB, Python, R, LabVIEW, etc.)
  • A working knowledge of statistics for data analysis and hypothesis testing
  • Familiarity with measurement systems (computer vision, cameras, photogrammetry, neural/deep networks)
  • Demonstrated competency in complex-system integration
  • Familiarity with software development processes
  • 3 or more years of work experience
  • Formal training in control systems and control theory
  • Fundamental understanding of mathematical optimization techniques


  •  M.S. in electrical engineer, physics or related field, Ph.D. a plus

Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
