Technical Program Manager

Technical Program Management | Menlo Park, CA

The Oculus team at Facebook builds the VR hardware and platform to let you experience anything, anywhere, with anyone. Additionally, Facebook has teams dedicated to building social experiences in VR that make it easier to spend time with your friends, wherever they are. Virtual reality’s potential to connect the world is immense—and we’re just getting started. (Oculus Research is driving the state of the art forward with breakthrough work in computer vision, advanced optics, eye tracking, mixed reality, and new ways to map the human body.) 

Oculus is a world leader in the design of virtual and augmented reality systems. Come work alongside expert software engineers and research scientists to create the technology that makes VR and AR pervasive and universal. Join the adventure of a lifetime as we make science fiction real and change the world. 

Are you passionate about helping those around you be more effective? Do you enjoy supporting teams of developers by providing structure and process to define development strategy and communicate project goals? We are looking for candidates who share our passion for tackling complexity head-on, to help cross discipline teams working on the future of VR. As a Technical Program Manager at Oculus, you will play a key role in setting the team up for success through thoughtful planning and careful tracking of progress against the project deliverables you help set.

Each team member brings something unique to the table, and we are looking for candidates who bring a passion for organization and production process to help our teams to ship world-class VR software.
