The Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) organisation at Facebook is helping more people around the world come together and connect through world-class Augmented and Virtual reality (AR/VR) products. With global departments dedicated to research and development in computer vision, machine learning, haptics, social interaction, and more, FRL is committed to driving the state of the art forward through relentless innovation. The potential to change the world is immense - and we're just getting started.
Our XR Tech team explores, develops, and delivers new cutting-edge technologies that serve as the foundation of current and future products. From mixed reality and human interaction to natural inputs and beyond, XR Tech is focused on taking new technologies from early concept to the product level while iterating, prototyping, and realising the human value and new experiences they open up.The role will sit within the Authentic Presence team. We are a team of applied computer vision scientists and software engineers. We develop machine perception technologies for human understanding that power product experiences in Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and across the Facebook family of apps.
We apply a range of software, computer vision and machine learning techniques to build products that enable new ways for people to connect and share experiences. We're addressing a variety of technical challenges in the areas of real-time image processing, 3D graphics, SLAM and scene reconstruction, machine perception, visualisation and human interaction.
