Reality Labs (RL) brings together world-class experts to develop and ship groundbreaking products at the intersection of hardware, software, and content. We have a clear mandate to ship products at scale. In particular, seemingly impossible products that define new categories that advance Meta’s mission of connecting the world. The RL Technology Engineering Team has the responsibility for taking breakthroughs in core technology and delivering them to market at scale. The Photographic Imaging team seeks a Data Acquisition Research Scientist who has experience in generation of training and test data sets for Photographic Imaging supporting ML/AI algorithm development.

Investigate & leverage state-of-the-art imaging software simulation & hardware tools to enable novel camera HW explorations, machine learning dataset generation, and product architecture tasks for consumer products.


Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a PhD in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Imaging/Color Science, Photography, Mechanical, Optical, relevant technical field, or equivalent practical experience. Degree must be completed prior to joining Meta.

Experience with machine learning and other statistical pattern recognition systems.

Experience with multi-camera capture system prototyping and calibration.

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


Conduct a key role in Photographic Imaging ML/AI Data Infrastructure Team to provide Data ACQ/Generation, Data Science, Annotation, & Analysis for Photographic Imaging supporting ML/AI algorithm development.

Develop data services plan with stakeholders to support new ML/AI research technology initiatives that will intersect with future products.

Develop with the support of system engineering and architecture teams capture rig setup, calibration, & pipeline integration to ML/AI algorithm development.

Work with external vendors and internal teams to design, procure for, and manage automation for data acquisition or generation in image quality labs contributing to camera architecture, bringup, tuning, and qualification.

Collaborate with development teams to set and monitor KPI’s for training and testing providing data science, annotation, and analysis services.

Research, develop and prototype advanced technologies in the domain of computational imaging solutions by leveraging innovative camera design, camera control algorithms and advanced CV/ML algorithms.

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

Experience in image quality subjective & objective analysis, computer vision, image processing, machine learning and other statistical pattern recognition systems.

Experience in data analyst/engineer/scientist role familiar with Python and at least one data analysis tools such as JMP.

Experience with camera optics, sensor, and image formation process, physically based scene rendering and simulation methods to simulate RAW image.

Experience working with mechanical, electrical, camera, and AI/ML engineering teams to define, iterate, and refine on practical custom capture systems used to gather AI/ML data in field.

Experience developing usable, efficient, and reliable tools and workflow to control/trigger off-the-shelf cameras in field capture scenarios (e.g. MATLAB/Python/C++).

Experience implementing custom multi-camera calibration workflow needed to photometrically and geometrically register field-captured image content for AI/ML training purposes (e.g. OpenCV, Ceres Solver, etc.).

Experience working and communicating cross-functionally in a team environment.
