Growth Program Manager (Facebook Research Labs)


Menlo Park, CA
Oct 29

Company Description:

The Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) Research Team brings together a world-class team of researchers, developers, and engineers to create the future of AR and VR, which together will become as universal and essential as smartphones and personal computers are today. An exact, high-realism likeness of a person in Virtual Reality presents a whole host of ethical considerations. These range from identity, self-image and body politics to privacy considerations and spoofing. The FRL Pittsburgh research team is looking for exceptional interns to help us create a revolution in virtual reality: achieving true photorealistic telepresence, where you can be with anyone, anywhere, at anytime--as yourself. Because the technology is entirely new, we have the kind of opportunity ethicists and designers dream of: the ability to allow ethical and privacy considerations to steer the creation of a VR social platform from the beginning. If you are interested in questions such as the following, then this role might be for you.
