Job Description

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.

Join a small design team that is passionate about defining what an industry-leading VR Platform will become in the near future. You will be expected to use a broad range of product design, interaction design, motion design, visual design, and prototyping skills to solve gnarly platform-level problems with partners across the broader FRL Team.You’ll design, research, and synthesize patterns for future platforms as well coordinate that work with neighboring teams. You’ll work with and get feedback from the Design, Engineering and Product management teams in FRL. This position is full-time.

  • Synthesize broad and ambiguous business requirements and accomplish them through design
  • Help establish preliminary processes to align cross-functional teams
  • Contribute to strategic decisions, working with the Design, Product and Executive teams
  • Connect work of disparate teams into a cohesive vision, balancing near term requirements with long-term opportunities
  • Give and solicit real time feedback from other designers to continually raise the quality and craftsmanship of the product
  • Partner with PMs, engineers, researchers in guiding the long-term evolution of the user experience
  • Clearly articulate design decisions to a vast set of internal stakeholders
  • Step back and help build product strategy – thinking beyond just incremental features
  • Advocate for product design within Facebook Reality Labs and throughout Facebook

  • Experience designing and experience managing and leading in cross-functional environments
  • 4+ years of experience in shipping software products
  • Knowledge of qualitative and quantitative methods for user research, including A/B testing frameworks
  • Experience thinking about product strategy and vision (not just ‘how it should look’ but ‘what we should build and why)
  • A portfolio featuring examples of product design and experimentation through prototyping or other methods

  • Light familiarity with VR development (Unity), or a history of learning and adapting to new tools.
