Meta (formerly Facebook) (501+ Employees, 34% 2 Yr Employee Growth Rate)
The Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) organisation at Facebook is helping more people around the world come together and connect through world-class Augmented and Virtual reality (AR/VR) products. With global departments dedicated to research and development in computer vision, machine learning, haptics, social interaction, and more, FRL is committed to driving the state of the art forward through relentless innovation. The potential to change the world is immense – and we’re just getting started.Our Mixed Reality (XR) organization in Zurich is focused on cutting edge research and development of machine perception technologies from early concepts to production level across all of Facebook’s AR/VR products and surfaces. These include Oculus products, Facebook Glasses and Family of Apps (Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, WhatsApp). We develop core capabilities across a range of product domains including Avatars, AR/VR remote presence/calling, AR Commerce, AR Sharing, Spatial , Calibration and more.In this role, you will be researching and applying a range of software, computer vision and machine learning techniques for solving challenges that bridge virtual and real worlds and will impact billions of people. We’re addressing a variety of technical challenges in the areas of real-time image processing, 3D graphics, SLAM, scene reconstruction, machine perception, visualisation and human interaction. As well there are opportunities to collaborate with researchers in Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) and Facebook AI Research (FAIR).
