Come invent the future. At Meta Reality Labs Research, 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, and you have 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 rendering. Partner with expert research scientists, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and 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.
