Facebook Software Engineer - Telepresence in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.


Come invent the future. At Facebook Reality Labs, software development is vital to turbocharging our scientific explorations and generating viable paths to the consumer products people will use for decades to come — products that will literally give people super powers. If you're a C/C++ software engineering expert with deep knowledge of real-time systems, with a love for solving novel problems from first principles, and an aptitude for optimization, you'll thrive in our collaborative environment. Join a world-class team of pioneers experimenting with breakthrough interaction technology, including virtual humans, from capture to reproduction. Partner with expert research scientists, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and other brilliant software minds to build cutting-edge prototypes and create the technology that makes AR/VR universal. At the Pittsburgh lab, we aspire to a vision of social VR and AR, where people are able to interact with each other across distances in a way that is indistinguishable from in-person interactions. We're just getting started. You can help us make this dream a reality.
