Facebook Graphics Engineer, AI Camera in Menlo Park, California

Intro:

Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.

Summary:

Our team builds cutting-edge technology to detect, track and transform people in AR. Our technology runs in Instagram, Facebook, Camera, Messenger, and other product and infra surfaces. Among other initiatives, we own the best in class face tracking and background segmentation tech, which runs across a wide variety of mobile devices and hardware stacks.

Through our work, someone can completely transform and transport themselves. With the touch of a button in a camera app, you can become a character from a movie, or mermaid relaxing on the ocean floor; you can take an artistic photograph or video of yourself, or use the high fidelity face tracker to try on makeup from real brands you can buy in the store. For creators, we supply a suite of intuitive, yet powerful tools through AR Studio, and work to help them build almost any “people”-centric AR experience they can imagine.
