We believe that augmented reality eyewear is the future of computing. In our office on a ranch in the Portola Valley hills above Stanford University, our team is making the stunning holographic interfaces seen in Ironman, Enders Game and Minority Report reality.

SLAM Engineer

The Awesome Opportunity

As our SLAM Engineer at Meta, you will develop algorithms that underpin the state-of-the-art Meta SDK, which ships with the Meta 1 Developer Kit. The Meta 1 Developer Kit is the first true 3D Input, 3D Output system available in the eye ware form factor. The SDK is the between the hardware and hundreds of advanced applications built on Meta for use in games, entertainment, engineering, design and medicine. The work you will be doing will revolutionize the way people interact with their technology and their environment and you will be at the forefront of this technology.

You will need to be able to demonstrate a keen knowledge and expertise in SLAM as well as the ability to produce production quality code while working in a fast-paced dynamic team.

What success will look like for this opportunity

  • Develop computer vision algorithms that give people superpowers

  • Write tests so that you can quantify and iteratively improve the performance and robustness of your algorithms

  • Evaluate creative and diverging approaches to hard problems, favoring simple heuristic approaches where they suffice

  • Work in a cross functional team with Unity developers and human factor experts to create a natural and effective user experience

Skills Necessary to Succeed

  • A demonstrated focus, success, and passion with SLAM
