Reality Labs (RL) Research is dedicated to the research and development required to bring virtual and augmented reality to billions of people around the world. To give people the power to build community, to share what matters most to them, and to bring people closer together. To that end, our team is specifically focused on making interpersonal, social experience in virtual reality and augmented reality, perceptually indistinguishable from real life. Our goal? To enable the ability to interact with anyone, anytime, anywhere.

At RL Research, you will join a world-class team exploring cutting edge machine learning, computer vision, hardware, software, and state-of-the-art Augmented and Virtual reality technology. Every day, you will work alongside the world’s leading Research Scientists, Mechanical Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Software Engineers, and Technical Program Managers to create the technology that will make VR and AR pervasive and universal.

For this role, RL Research is looking for a research engineering team lead to explore the design and implementation of quality evaluation processes to improve avatar-mediated communication. If you are passionate about analyzing and improving photorealistic avatars, working with large datasets and distributed compute at scale, operating in an interdisciplinary environment, and helping your team coordinate and collaborate in the face of ambitious and ambiguous challenges, we might have a spot for you.
