Reality Labs (RL) focuses on delivering Meta’s vision through Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). Enabling compelling user experiences on Virtual and Augmented Reality devices requires innovation and co-design across all layers of stack from novel algorithms to custom silicon. The FRL team is driving the state of the art forward with breakthrough work in computer vision, speech, virtual assistant, machine learning, mixed reality, graphics, displays, sensors, and new ways to map the human body among many others.

We are seeking exceptional interns with a background in Graphics Architecture, Deep Learning acceleration, Computer Architecture, Hardware/Software Co-design of Accelerator systems to join our Graphics team. This team focuses on designing ultra-low power graphics pipelines. The ideal candidate will have practical experience in standard mobile graphics pipelines along with experience with deep learning models that can produce high quality images with limited compute resources and minimal latency.

In this position, you will get exposure to the full stack from user experiences, graphics algorithms down to hardware execution blocks. You will work with the domain experts in graphics and machine learning to understand the system challenges and product requirements. Your research will define innovative solutions for low-power, low latency AR graphics pipeline.

Our internships are twelve (12) – sixteen (16) weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.
