The Facebook Reality Labs team at Facebook is helping more people around the world come together and connect through world-class AR / VR hardware and software.
With global departments dedicated to AR / VR research, computer vision, haptics, social interaction, and more, Oculus is committed to driving the state of the art forward through relentless innovation.
AR / VR’s potential to change the world is immense and we’re just getting started.Our Zurich Core Tech team explores, develops, and delivers new cutting-edge technologies that serve as the foundation of current and future Oculus products.
From mixed reality and human interaction to natural inputs and beyond, Core Tech is focused on taking new technologies from early concept to the product level while iterating, prototyping, and realizing the human value and new experiences they open up.
Your job will be to both manage and partner with groups working across the full spectrum from research to product development, managing our technical investment portfolio supporting Tracking for AR / VR products across different timelines.
You will oversee and be responsible for a broad array of state-of-the-art technology areas and product integrations. Prospective candidates should have sufficient technical depth and breadth in the associated set of technologies to make portfolio management, resourcing and roadmap decisions.
