Reality Labs Research (RL-R) brings together a diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of researchers and engineers to create the future of augmented and virtual reality. The Display Systems Research team’s goal is to create ergonomic, sunglasses-like AR/VR displays that provide an experience that’s indistinguishable from reality. The team cultivates an honest and considerate environment where self-motivated individuals thrive. We encourage a strong sense of ownership and embrace the ambiguity that comes with working on the frontiers of research. As a Software Engineer in DSR, you’ll partner with expert research scientists, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and other brilliant software minds to build cutting-edge prototypes using C/C++ and real-time systems. You’ll foster scientific explorations and generate viable paths to the consumer products that will connect people in meaningful ways for decades to come. Together, let’s step into the adventure of a lifetime as we make science fiction real and change the world.
