Come invent the future. At Facebook Reality Labs, software development is vital to empowering our scientific explorations and generating viable paths to the consumer products people will use for decades to come — products that will truly give people superpowers. If you're a C++ software engineering expert with deep knowledge of real-time systems, a love for solving novel problems from first principles, and an aptitude for optimization then you'll thrive in our collaborative environment. Join a world-class team of pioneers experimenting with breakthrough interaction technology including virtual humans from capture to reproduction. Partner with expert research scientists, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and other brilliant software minds to build cutting-edge prototypes and create the technology that makes AR/VR universal. At the lab, we aspire to a vision of social VR and AR where people are able to interact with each other across distances in a way that is indistinguishable from in-person interactions. We're just getting started. You can help us make this dream a reality and a key lab leader.

About Meta
Meta builds technologies that help people connect, find communities, and grow businesses. When Facebook launched in 2004, it changed the way people connect. Apps like Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp further empowered billions around the world. Now, Meta is moving beyond 2D screens toward immersive experiences like augmented and virtual reality to help build the next evolution in social technology. People who choose to build their careers by building with us at Meta help shape a future that will take us beyond what digital connection makes possible today—beyond the constraints of screens, the limits of distance, and even the rules of physics.
