Meta AR/VR Job | Research Scientist, Depth Sensing

Job(岗位): Research Scientist, Depth Sensing

Type(岗位类型): 3D Software Engineering

Citys(岗位城市): Redmond, WA

Date(发布日期): 2023-7-31


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. The Sensors and Systems Research (SSR) team’s goal is to create ultra low power and lightweight photon-to-inference pipelines that enable all-day, always-on machine perception. The team cultivates an honest and open 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 Research Scientist in SSR, you’ll partner with expert research scientists, electrical engineers, silicon engineers and other brilliant minds to build novel prototypes integrated with advanced AR/VR headsets. You’ll foster scientific explorations and generate viable paths to the consumer products that will connect people in meaningful ways for decades to come. You’ll work on a wide range of technology, from sensor design, bring up, validation to standing up prototypes and system level demonstration and exploration. Together, let’s step into the adventure of a lifetime as we make science fiction real and change the world.
