We are constantly working to expand sensing capabilities, broaden device support, and improve tracking quality and robustness.

The team is a fast moving group of engineers, designers, and research scientists tasked with building the platform and ecosystem for ground-breaking devices, apps and tools for AR/VR. You have strong technical skills and a dedication to building and iterating on software development processes.

The Google Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality team is a fast moving group of engineers, designers, and research scientists tasked with building the foundations for great immersive and augmented reality apps and prototyping novel, delightful user experiences.
