Facebook Motion Capture Stage Manager in Redmond, Washington


You have a mixture of skills that enable you to effectively manage all aspects of a motion capture stage, including camera setup, calibration, networking, data management, data processing, maintenance and program management. You like working with an interdisciplinary team of computer vision, software, hardware, and gameplay engineers. You are effective at leveraging and managing a cross-functional team (of hardware engineers, software engineers, network engineers, external vendors) to achieve your goals, but you're not afraid to do things yourself.

At Oculus, you'll help drive the data capture efforts for delivering next generation computer vision and machine learning efforts to advance the future of interaction for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). Join a world-class team experimenting with bold ideas in areas including optics, haptics, tracking, displays, computer vision, user experience, audio, and perceptual psychology. Work alongside expert Scientists, Mechanical Engineers, Electrical Engineers and Software Engineers to create the technology that makes VR and AR pervasive and universal. Join the adventure of a lifetime as we make science fiction real and change the world.
