FRL Research is dedicated to the research and development required to bring virtual and augmented reality to billions of people around the world. We are focused on making interpersonal, social experience in virtual reality and augmented reality, perceptually indistinguishable from real life, in-person interactions.

You are a Software Engineer skilled in C++ and Python, and you enjoy working close to in-house developed embedded devices, combining a multitude of sensing components, including image sensors, microphones, inertial measurement units. You are aware of important aspects of real-time perception systems and/or robots such as time synchronization, latency minimization, and have experience with the full stack projects ranging from the hardware sensors, firmware, operating-system level interfaces to the higher level software modules that organize, or visualize fetched sensor data. You understand contemporary software design and engineering practices. You thrive in a fast-paced, multidisciplinary environment.

At FRL Research, you will join a world-class team exploring optics, haptics, tracking, displays, computer vision, user experience, audio, and perceptual psychology. Every day, you will work alongside expert Research Scientists, Mechanical Engineers, Electrical Engineers and Software Engineers to create the technology that will make VR and AR pervasive and universal.

Join the adventure of a lifetime, as we invent the future and change the world.
