Reality Labs Research at Meta 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. We believe that a key component of this mission is to improve and enhance human hearing for people at all levels of hearing ability in all aspects of their daily life.

We are looking for a Research Engineer to join our growing interdisciplinary team to help solve difficult problems at the intersection of auditory perception, spatial audio, room acoustics, hearing sciences, 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, perceptual evaluation, and large scale audio data collection & analysis and will build systems and to demonstrate the future of audio experiences.
