The AR/VR team at Facebook is helping people around the world come together and connect through world-class Augmented and Virtual Reality hardware and software. We are developing the future of AR and VR, bringing products to consumers that transform entertainment and social experiences. The potential of AR/VR to connect the world is immense-and we're just getting started. With global departments dedicated to AR/VR research, computer vision, haptics, social interaction, and more, AR/VR is committed to driving the state of the art forward through relentless innovation.
Our Core Tech team explores, develops, and delivers new cutting-edge technologies that serve as the foundation of current and future AR/VR products. From mixed reality and human interaction to natural inputs and beyond, Core Tech is focused on taking new technologies from early concept to the product level while iterating, prototyping, and realizing the human value and new experiences they open up.
Spatial AI is seeking a talented Computer Vision Engineer to solve new and emerging vision problems in AR/VR. The Spatial AI team applies a range of software, computer vision and machine learning techniques to build products that enable new ways for people to connect and share experiences. Our team is addressing a variety of technical challenges in the areas of advanced optics, real-time image processing, depth sensing, SLAM, sensor fusion, 3D reconstruction and human interaction in the form of hand/face/eye tracking. We're looking for candidates who share a passion for exploring and solving complex, unsolved problems at the intersection of computer vision and AR/VR. Open positions are based in Menlo Park and Seattle.
