Today, you look at the internet. In the future, you will be in it. The metaverse is the successor to the mobile internet. It is a set of digital spaces that are interconnected so you can easily move between them. It lets you do things you couldn't do in the physical world with people you can't physically be with. You'll be able to hang out together with friends, work, play, learn, shop, create, and more. And you’ll be able to access these spaces across all your devices. Meta Horizon brings people together around shared activities. It’s a collection of fun and rewarding games and experiences (“Worlds”) plus the platform and tools to create them. Our titles are social first – worlds focus on shared activities to help people build new friendships, hang out together, and play together. Horizon also provides a set of services that enhance these experiences (identity, inventory, travel, multiplayer coordination, media sharing, etc), providing consistency, continuity, and co-presence for the metaverse on Meta Quest and other devices. As a TPM on Horizon, you will be driving highly cross-functional projects that are shaping the next-generation social platform on Quest, and you will have the opportunity to lead multi-disciplinary programs across Horizon consumer experiences, creator tools, and platform capabilities.
