Computer Vision Engineer, 3D Sensing

The AR/VR team at Facebook is helping more people around the world come together and connect through world-class Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality hardware and software. With global departments dedicated to AR/VR research, computer vision, haptics, social interaction, and more, we are committed to driving the state of the art forward through relentless innovation. AR and VR potential to change the world is immense-and we're just getting started.
Our Core Tech team explores, develops, and delivers new cutting-edge technologies that serve as the foundation of current and future AR/VR products. From mixed reality and human interaction to natural input and beyond, Core Tech is focused on taking new technologies from early concept to the product level while iterating, prototyping, and realizing the human value and new experiences they open up.
Computer vision serves as the main component in many of the most exciting technologies for next generation AR and VR devices. The ability to create an understanding of the 3D world around a user leads to deeply immersive experiences. We are looking for talented Computer Vision Engineers who are interested in developing input sensor technologies that will help enable these experiences. Our team is focused on developing algorithms to enable the capture, processing, and display of 3D content using state-of-the-art hardware. We are looking for motivated engineers interested in taking algorithms all the way from ideation to efficient mobile implementation. The work done by this team is positioned to greatly expand the envelope of great VR.
