Skillset / Experience:

This Research Team brings together a world-class team of researchers, developers, and engineers to create

the future of virtual and augmented reality, which together will become as universal and essential as smartphones and

personal computers are today. Just as personal computers have done over the past 45 years, AR and VR will ultimately

change everything about how we work, play, and connect. We are developing all the technologies needed to enable

breakthrough AR glasses and VR headsets, including optics and displays, computer vision, audio, graphics, brain-computer

interfaces, haptic interaction, eye/hand/face/body tracking, perception science, and true telepresence. In particular, the

Research Audio team is focused on two goals; creating virtual sounds that are perceptually indistinguishable from reality,

and redefining human hearing.

These two initiatives will allow us to connect people by allowing them to feel together despite being physically apart and

allow them to converse in even the most difficult listening environments. We are seeking a contract UX Researcher to help

us advance an ambitious research project aiming to develop technologies that will augment human capabilities and enable

effortless communication in acoustically challenging environments.
