Partner Engineer, Connectivity
The “metaverse” is a set of virtual spaces where you can create and explore with other people who aren’t in the same physical space as you. You will be able to hang out with friends, work, play, learn, shop, create and more. The Metaverse will be characterized by social presence, the feeling that you’re right there with another person, no matter where in the world you happen to be. Like the internet, the metaverse isn’t a single product one company can build alone. This will be a global partnership with businesses, creators, policymakers, entrepreneurs and more and a long term opportunity which will only be fully realized over the next 10-15 years. This role is an opportunity to be part of building the future of the Metaverse by working with various parties in the ecosystem, including service providers, OEMs and system integrators, working towards a common mission to build Metaverse ready infrastructure.
