The Reality Labs division at Meta brings together a world-class team of researchers, developers, & engineers to build the future of connection within virtual and augmented reality. We target product categories with high potential for sustaining human connection at population scale. Our strategy is to build products that gain enough market share to establish broad consumer expectations around communication, acceptability, and privacy for their entire category.

Virtual Reality (VR) is one of the company’s highest priorities and represents our vision for the future of social interactions. Our VR devices like Quest offer the feeling of presence, or truly being together, even when you’re not. This group will be key to delivering the next phase in Meta’s vision to bring the world together by enabling a true sense of presence across digital spaces.

We are looking for a Director of Data Science who can shape the direction of the VR by helping develop product and go-to-market strategies and laying out the analytic vision and roadmap to help the integrated team establish and deliver its goals. She/he will bring robust end-to-end analytics leadership experience that includes data science and data engineering, and work closely with other VR leaders including product, engineering, product marketing, etc. to establish a world-class culture of data analytics within the org. This leadership role will be pivotal in shaping the future direction of our VR efforts and is a unique opportunity to join the team at its inception.

This team is focused on helping the product team scope out new opportunities, define success across the overall product ecosystem and each product area individually, as well as understand how the presence platform can contribute to our mission to increase meaningful connections. This leader will drive the DS team into more experimentation with broad hypothesis areas and determine how we are going to test and then push DS into product development. Given the phase of the products, there’s a lot of testing and pivoting and product re-scoping as we find the right path and product features.
