Reality Labs (RL) AR Camera SW team explores, develops, and delivers new cutting-edge camera software solutions that serve as the foundation of current and future AR products. We work at the intersection of AI and camera. The team is responsible for rapidly building and iterating on the most-innovative and life-changing camera products. As a manager, you will lead, manage, and inspire engineering teams developing the Camera Foundation platform for AR. This is a 0->1 opportunity for building something completely new, which is rarely available in the industry. Our goal is to build a performant, reliable, and scalable camera stack, as well as leveraging Computational Photography to develop camera algorithms to power new camera driven features, formats and experiences that power a variety of use cases across the Facebook apps and products. The ideal candidate has proven design and build skills, passion for Computational Photography, Image/Video Quality, Algorithm Development, and hands-on experience working on consumer-facing camera products. You are the kind of leader who has expertise building and managing high performance teams creating high reliable, robust, and performant software.
