Facebook Computer Vision Engineer, PhD University Grad in Zurich, Switzerland


Computer Vision is a key ingredient in developing great virtual reality technology. We are currently seeking exceptional engineers with a proven track record in a computer vision (e.g., segmentation, detection, recognition, tracking, SLAM, visual-inertial odometry, structure from motion and/or 3D reconstruction) to join our Computer Vision team in Zürich. As a computer vision engineer at Oculus, you'll be solving challenges at the forefront of computer vision that transform virtual reality from dream to reality. We're looking for a creative engineer to usher in the next era of human-computer interaction by solving hard and exciting computer vision problems. The position requires a PhD in computer science, robotics, computer engineering, or similar areas, and a strong background in software development, modeling, analysis, and system building.

Required Skills:

  1. Develop creative computer vision and tracking software for a variety of Oculus products

  2. Plan and execute cutting-edge research to advance Oculus product development

  3. Develop novel real-time 3D scene reconstruction techniques and delivering accurate visual odometry systems

  4. Apply machine learning to computer vision problems

  5. Perform research that enables modeling and tracking the human body

  6. Research and prototype techniques and algorithms for object detection and recognition

  7. Develop robust software for integrating multiple sensors and tracking systems

  8. Collaborate with HW and SW engineers to develop prototype solutions for tracking, detection and modeling

Minimum Qualifications:

  1. PhD and/or postdoctoral assignment in the field of Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Computer Graphics, Robotics or similar

  2. Graduating with a PhD by October 2017, or completing a university postdoctoral assignment

  3. 5+ years experience with computer vision – specifically real-time tracking (e.g. of objects, hands, bodies, faces) or 3D reconstruction

  4. 3+ years of experience engineering in C++

  5. Experience with computer vision/machine learning libraries such as OpenCV, Matlab, or Torch

  6. Knowledge in machine learning, Bayesian filtering, information theory, and 3D geometry

  7. Prototyping skills

  8. Interpersonal skills: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration

  9. Able to obtain work authorization in Switzerland in 2017
