At Reality Labs Research, we aspire to achieve a vision of social presence in VR and AR where people are able to interact with each other across distances in a way that is indistinguishable from in-person interactions.

Reality Labs Research (RL-R) brings together a diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of researchers and engineers to create the future of augmented and virtual reality. On the Codec Avatars Infrastructure team, you’ll work closely with building tools, libraries, and frameworks that will help researchers collaborate with each other and empower their research towards the generation of Codec Avatars.

Our team cultivates an honest and considerate environment where self-motivated individuals thrive. We encourage a strong sense of ownership and embrace the ambiguity that comes with working on the frontiers of research.

As a Software Engineer on the Codec Avatars Infrastructure team, you will foster our scientific explorations and generate viable paths to the consumer products that will connect people in meaningful ways for decades to come.
