Meta Reality Labs Research brings together a world-class team of researchers, developers, and engineers to create the future of virtual and augmented reality. The Audio Research team is focused on harnessing the power of AR and VR to make virtual sounds indistinguishable from reality and give audio superpowers to billions of people, forever transforming the way we work, play, and connect. A key component of this mission is enabling true audio presence to give people the power to build community, wherever they are, and bring the world closer together.

We are looking for an exceptional Research Engineer to join our growing interdisciplinary team to help solve difficult problems at the intersection of acoustics, auditory perception, spatial audio, and signal processing. In this position, you’ll work collaboratively with a multi-disciplinary team to build entirely new experiences which incorporate hardware design, new sensing technologies, computer vision, machine learning, and human/machine perception. You will focus on advancing the state-of-the-art of acoustic measurement, perceptual modeling, and large scale audio data analysis and will build systems and to demonstrate the future of audio experiences.


Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a Master’s degree in the field of Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, Physics, Machine Learning, relevant technical field, or equivalent practical experience. Degree must be completed prior to joining Meta.

3+ years experience in designing and performing audio acoustic experiments in a controlled laboratory setting.

3+ years of programming experience in MATLAB, Python, C/C++ or an equivalent language.

Demonstrated experience in the implementation or design of audio signal processing algorithms.

Must obtain work authorization in country of employment at the time of hire and maintain ongoing work authorization during employment.


Develop state-of-the-art methods for spatial audio measurement, post-processing, and analysis.

Implement audio analysis algorithms in MATLAB, C/C++, Python, Max/MSP, or equivalent.

Design and implement proof of concept systems for enabling and demonstrating true audio presence with commercial AR/VR products and research audio hardware systems.

Design and implement benchmark tests to evaluate the subjective and objective performance of advanced audio systems, applying the end-to-end understanding of audio hardware and software subsystems.

Define the performance metrics for spatial audio algorithms and translate these metrics to system level key performance indicators.

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

Demonstrated experience working collaboratively on cross-functional and interdisciplinary teams.

Demonstrated experience in implementing or designing perceptual and objective audio quality metrics.

Demonstrated experience with large-scale automated data collection and analysis.

Demonstrated experience with machine learning for audio signal processing.

Demonstrated experience with embedded and/or real-time audio signal processing.

Experience integrating multiple technologies (audio, motion capture, cameras, etc.) into reliable robust experiential prototypes.
