Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) is driving the industry forward by developing Virtual and Augmented Reality Products. The Director for the XR Tech Software Platform TPM team is responsible for leading and growing the TPM team that drives development of the software platform for our CV/ML/AI efforts on the next generation AR/VR devices. These serve as the critical building blocks to enable our next generation compute platform.

You will be driving development of the software that powers core algorithms for the next generation of products including our graphics pipeline (both device and cloud rendering) for visual immersion, spatial audio stack for auditory immersion, camera & sensor abstraction layers, runtime systems for inter-algorithm communication, and a large scale data and evaluation system for ML models. The XR Tech Software Platform team needs a leader who is a great communicator and collaborator to drive awareness and cross-functional buy-in throughout the FRL organization.
