At Reality Labs (RL), our goal is to explore, innovate and design Client interfaces and hardware subsystems for the next generation of virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences. We are looking for a skilled and motivated Software Engineer to join our team. We are specifically looking for a candidate with experience in Unreal Engine and C++ and who can work with a team of researchers who are building prototype research devices for haptic feedback and input in AR/VR. More broadly, the chosen candidate will work with a diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of researchers and engineers and will have access to cutting edge technology, resources, and testing facilities. The ideal candidate will be someone who likes to learn constantly, dive into new areas with unfamiliar technologies, and embrace the ambiguity of AR/VR problem solving. They will also be someone who likes to collaborate in a team environment across multiple scientific and engineering disciplines, making the architectural tradeoffs required to rapidly deliver software solutions.
