Job Info

At Meta Reality Labs Research, we aspire to achieve a vision of social presence in VR and AR where people are able to interact with each other across distances in a way that is indistinguishable from in-person interactions. We are looking for exceptional Software Engineers who are excited about architecting a software platform that can process reliably and at scale large amounts of multimodal data for the generation of photorealistic avatars. You will design and develop the foundation used by a large community of engineers and researchers to generate a photorealistic virtual reality experience. This includes the libraries that allow the invention of complex data processing computational graphs, the data management of hundreds of petabytes of avatar data, as well as the benchmarking of industry leading machine learning models. At our lab, you will be exposed to facilities, algorithms, and data that are years ahead of anything else in existence today. We want people who work well across disciplines, are excited about getting research prototypes to really work, and are excited to work in new technology areas.
