Job Details

Reality Labs at Meta is building products that make it easier for people to connect with the ones they love most, enjoy top-notch, wire-free VR, and push the future of computing platforms. Come work alongside experts in software, hardware and research to create the technology that makes AR/VR/MR pervasive and universal. The VR Shell team is looking for a Software Engineer with strong technical expertise in the domain of real-time 3D interactivity, either in games or other interactive 3D software, and someone who is passionate about advancing the boundaries of input in AR/VR/MR. The ideal candidate is an experienced software engineer with a background in architecting and building spatial user interfaces, or working with novel input and controls, who flourishes working in a rapidly evolving and challenging technology space. Passionate about sharing your unique experience you continuously improve both the software systems you encounter as well as the engineers and partners you collaborate with.This position will afford you the opportunity to explore the meaning and implementation of future input modalities in spatial computing by taking a lead role in the software arm of an interdisciplinary front-end team (design, user research, software), with a heavy focus on end user experience. You will work across reality labs with full-stack hardware, software, and design teams experimenting and productionizing new input devices and emerging research technologies in AR/VR/MR. We want people who can brainstorm big ideas; have great product sense; work in ambiguous technology areas; have an eye for detail, and have an entrepreneurial spirit to make ideas come to life! So to be here today is to truly be at the heart of change and the frontier of what's to come. We're the people helping to define the metaverse.
