At Facebook Reality Labs (FRL), our goal is to explore, innovate and design novel interfaces and hardware subsystems for the next generation of virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences. The FRL CTRL team grew out of the acquisition of CTRL-labs in 2019. We are developing noninvasive neuromotor input technology based on electromyography (EMG), aimed at giving users unparalleled control in AR/VR. We build the hardware, software, and interactions which bring this cutting edge and impactful technology to life.

In this role you will support a talented team of engineers and researchers working on fundamental neuromotor interactions which will form the basis of future AR/VR platforms. You will help us ensure that we provide deep value to users by taking advantage of the unique properties of neural interfaces. More broadly you will collaborate with a diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of scientists, engineers, and user researchers with access to advanced technology, resources, and testing facilities. Come join us in inventing the future!
