Job Description

The AR/VR team at Facebook is helping more people around the world come together and connect through world-class Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality hardware and software. With global departments dedicated to AR/VR research, computer vision, haptics, social interaction, and more, we are committed to driving the state of the art forward through relentless innovation. AR and VR potential to change the world is immense-and we're just getting started.

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 input 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.

You share a passion for exploring and solving complex problems at the intersection of VR/AR, Computer Vision and Machine Learning. You're an exceptional C++ software engineer with a solid understanding of applied mathematics and numerical optimization as used in computer vision, robotics, computer graphics or related fields. You're capable of driving cutting-edge and performance-sensitive systems that incorporate the latest innovations in deep learning and computer vision.


* Write and optimize system level C++ code that integrates computer vision and machine learning libraries, mobile platforms, sensors and other tracking technologies on different processing units (GPU, CPU and DSP)

Plan and execute cutting-edge research to advance eye tracking technologies from proof of concept to production

Collaborate in a team environment across multiple scientific and engineering disciplines, making the architectural tradeoffs required to rapidly deliver software solutions

Develop and optimize novel computer vision algorithms and advanced systems with a focus on real-time object tracking, sensor fusion, visual odometry, camera calibration and 3D reconstruction

Design core components up and down the software stack, developing primarily in C++ on different platforms

Write clean readable code, debug complex problems that span systems, prioritize ruthlessly and get things done with a high level of efficiency


* BS in Computer Vision, Computer Science or a related technical field

5+ years' experience developing software in C++, including algorithm design and systems software development

Proven track record of software development, including shipping one or more products using standard software development toolsets such as source control and continuous integration systems

Demonstrated experience working collaboratively in cross-functional teams
