Software Engineer - AR, VR, MR (Leadership)
Location pin icon
Our mission is to give people the tools to feel connected anytime, anywhere. We create new, category-defining consumer hardware and software - such as Oculus Quest, Portal, and Spark AR - that are immersive, social, and increase the depth of people's connections. Our team is a diverse group of problem solvers, inventors, and proven visionaries who are relentless about transforming everyday occurrences into rich experiences that have the potential to improve the way billions of people live. We’re developing the future of augmented, virtual and mixed reality (AR/MR/VR). We are currently seeking innovative engineers to develop technology and solve complex problems. We are looking for a software engineer with experience and expertise in building platforms and experiences in tandem. As our team works in AR/MR, hands on experience building 3D experiences (e.g., games, spatial applications) and platforms (e.g., game engines) is particularly applicable for this role. The ideal candidate is self-driven and capable of working up and down the technical stack independent of technical or organizational boundaries. Our team’s collaborative skills are at the high end, so it’s really about solving problems that we need to solve to build the next wave of computing devices (AR Glasses) - component ownership is fleeting - product responsibility is durable
