Meta’s mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we’re building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we’re creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Meta are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities — we’re just getting started.

Reality Labs (RL) in Pittsburgh is looking for exceptional interns to help us create a revolution in virtual reality: achieving true photorealistic telepresence, where you can be with anyone, anywhere, at any time. We have made some important advances, but it will take a diverse team with a wide spectrum of skills to accomplish this future. If you have expertise in computer vision, machine learning, and computer graphics, we expect you will find the work here highly intriguing. We are looking for motivated software, electrical, and mechanical engineers; and strong math skills are always a huge plus. We publish our work at leading conferences and journals.

Come join us as we make photorealistic telepresence in VR happen!

Available projects may include, but are not limited to:

* Neural Rendering

* 3D Audio Reconstruction from Multiple Microphones

* Speech Synthesis

* High Fidelity Face Model Reconstruction and Tracking

* High Fidelity Hand Model Reconstruction and Tracking

* High Fidelity Body Model Reconstruction and Tracking

* High Fidelity Hair Model Reconstruction and Tracking

* Neural Architecture Search and Optimization

Our internships are twelve (12) to sixteen (16) to twenty four (24) weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.
