We are looking for software engineers to enable mixed reality experiences by developing state-of-the-art volume capture techniques. Volume capture is an exciting emerging technology that bridges many subfields of computer vision, as well as computer graphics, systems design, image sensors, and film production. The result is high-fidelity reconstruction of temporally dynamic, non-rigid scenes, which can then be viewed and experienced on VR/AR/MR platforms. Solving these problems requires deep domain knowledge of both classical and bleeding edge algorithms and techniques, and solving them well requires innovation, creativity, and collaboration across domain boundaries.

Areas of specific expertise include but are not limited to:

  • 3D Reconstruction: Accurate and robust depth map generation, multi-view and multi-modal data synthesis, and watertight surface estimation

  • Multi-Sensor Calibration: Intrinsic and extrinsic calibration of multi-sensor, multi-modal systems of cameras and projectors

  • Segmentation: Accurate segmentation of foreground objects and background

  • Tracking + Scene Flow: High-confidence sparse 2D/3D feature tracking; dense or semi-dense optical/scene flow

  • Scene Understanding: Understanding and semantically labeling content in a scene

  • 3D Model Compression: Adaptive simplification/decimation of highly dense point clouds/mesh objects; compression of temporal object sequence


  • Research, design, implement and optimize algorithms related to the broad problem of volume capture

  • Collaborate with team members across different specializations

  • Work with data from multi-camera, multi-modal capture systems

  • Define metrics for system/algorithm performance

  • Stay up to date with state-of-the-art research and industry progress

  • Document and organize algorithm design and implementation decisions

  • Communicate regularly with team about research advances, algorithm design, etc

  • Participate in strategic discussions around data capture and system design: sensor types and specifications, geometric layout of hardware, types of scenes which reconstruct well/poorly, anticipating future applications, etc


Expert knowledge in at least one area listed above, as well as:

  • Fluent in C/C++ (programming and debugging)

  • Experience working with OpenCV

  • Strong written and verbal communications skills

  • Knowledge of parallel computing, OpenCL, CUDA, GPGPU is a plus

  • Knowledge of deep learning techniques is a plus

  • Knowledge of optimization techniques is a plus


  • Relevant BS and 5+ years of experience

  • MS or Ph.D. is preferred

  • Well-qualified candidates are encouraged to apply, regardless of education/experience

U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Information (Completion is voluntary)

Individuals seeking employment at Magic Leap, Inc. are considered without regards to race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, marital status, ancestry, physical or mental disability, veteran status, gender identity, or sexual orientation. You are being given the opportunity to provide the following information in order to help us comply with federal and state Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action record keeping, reporting, and other legal requirements.

Completion of the form is entirely voluntary. Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Disabilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Autism
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Schizophrenia
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Major depression
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Missing limbs or partially missing limbs
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Impairments requiring the use of a wheelchair
  • Intellectual disability (previously called mental retardation)
Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.

1Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of Federal contractors, visit the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
