Reality Labs brings together a world-class team of researchers, developers, and engineers to create the future of virtual and augmented reality, which together will become as universal and essential as smartphones and personal computers are today. And just as personal computers have done over the past 45 years, AR and VR will ultimately change everything about how we work, play, and connect. We are developing all the technologies needed to enable breakthrough AR glasses and VR headsets, including optics and displays, computer vision, audio, graphics, brain-computer interface, haptic interaction, eye/hand/face/body tracking, perception science, and true telepresence. Some of those will advance much faster than others, but they all need to happen to enable AR and VR that are so compelling that they become an integral part of our lives.

We are seeking innovative Scientists with experience developing complex custom Optical Metrology instruments related to AR and VR. This role will model, optimize and prototype multiple optical measurement systems that meet challenging precision requirements. This role should develop a strong system level understanding to loop between measurement metrics, results, model expectations and system level implications.
