The Virtual Humans team works on cutting-edge research and development focusing on virtual people and presence. We envision a world where people connect across vast distances, so our roles focus on capturing, evaluating and modeling the full human body shape and motion. We are currently seeking innovative Research Engineers with a passion for technology to develop the next generation of virtual humans. As a Research Engineer, you will foster our scientific explorations in areas like human shape, motion, and appearance capture, biophysical modeling, simulation and rendering. Together, let’s step into the adventure of a lifetime as we make science fiction real.


Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a Master’s degree in the field of Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, Physics, Machine Learning, relevant technical field, or equivalent practical experience. Degree must be completed prior to joining Meta.

3+ years of experience programming with C++ and Python (gained through university projects)

3+ years experience in creating 3D geometry processing, 3D reconstruction, registration, non-linear optimization, and machine-learning-based solutions (gained through university projects).

University experience in the development of real-time systems, multi-threaded applications, performance benchmarking.

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


Collaborate with diverse and interdisciplinary researchers, engineers, and designers to conceptualize, build, and test novel digital humans and avatars technologies.

Support the realization of research outcomes into code and experiences through reusable tools, extensible plug-ins, and clear readable code.

Learn constantly, dive into new areas with uncharted technologies, and embrace the ambiguity of inventing the future of digital humans.
