For software and hardware experts with a focus on virtual reality, Facebook - which acquired Oculus Rift last year - plans to increase virtual reality hiring up to 14 percent in the immediate future. The company continues to enjoy high profit margins, with strong revenue and a workforce smaller than other leading Silicon Valley tech companies.
Facebook has a specific focus on its Oculus VR headsets, with 54 new positions geared towards employees with virtual reality experience.
"We are an ambitious company run by an ambitious CEO," said Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, in a statement to Reuters. "Our users are growing and our business is growing and we want to support that."
