Developer Relations Engineer

AR/VR | Seattle, WA

Developer Relations Engineering is a team that has a singular mission: to ensure all content that ships on the Oculus Store is of the highest possible quality. We provide white glove support to our top developers to assist with whatever they may need to get their content in the best shape possible. Our team has deep roots in the game industry and in specialized fields such as mobile chipsets. A Developer Relations Engineer should be comfortable with dropping into a foreign codebase, making precision changes to markedly improve performance or memory usage, or to do performance deep dives with CPU or GPU tools or frame analyzers. We look for engineers who are adept at communicating not only technical details to engineers, but also aspects of design that impact the quality of the VR experience. We often travel to meet face to face with our developers at their studios or at conferences, so some travel is expected for this role. We demand empathy for both developers and our internal teams. Unity and/or Unreal Engine experience is a plus, although not required.

  • Create best practices and tech notes that are distributed on the Oculus developer site
