Job Description

Are you looking to shape the future of computing?

Reality Labs (RL) is bringing together cutting edge research and engineering to deliver products and experiences for the future of immersive computing and connecting humans with entertainment, information and each other. Reality Labs is building software for all realities - augmented or virtual - for billions of users across the globe. Our team is expanding and we’re looking for an experienced Technical Program Manager (TPM) who will play a key role in defining and driving highly complex, cross-functional programs. 

Our XR Tech team explores, develops, and delivers new cutting-edge technologies that serve as the foundation of current and future AR/VR products.

As the Technical Program Manager for Data Collection Systems, you will be pivotal in developing and deploying systems to collect & create data for computer vision/machine learning purposes. Also in this role, you will establish processes around data management and working with data operations teams. This is a highly cross functional role that requires collaboration with data customers (computer vision/machine learning teams) to understand data and data systems needs, and drive project goals and requirements. The ideal candidate is someone who is a self-starter, passionate about the power of data and its impact on an organization that is delivering the next cutting-edge technology which will shape the future of AR/VR.

  • Troubleshoot and resolve technical and logistical issues
  • Develop scalable and sustainable processes/tools to drive improvements in efficiency, throughput and cost
  • Communicate program status, risks and mitigation plans to AR/VR solutions and executives

Minimum Qualifications

  • Experience operating autonomously across multiple teams
  • Bachelor in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or Electrical Engineering, or equivalent experience
  • 5+ years experience as a technical program manager or related software engineering work
  • Communication skills and experience working with highly technical teams and communicating to non-technical partners
