Facebook expands UK Oculus team

Facebook has hired a team of virtual reality experts in London, creating the first European base for its Oculus division as Mark Zuckerberg aims to be at the forefront of VR technology.

Oculus, which Facebook bought for $2 billion in 2014, has substantially expanded its UK team of engineers and developer relations staff in the last six months, according to employee profiles on the professional networking site LinkedIn. Of the 12 Oculus workers in the UK listed now on LinkedIn, eight have joined in the last six months

The Oculus team in the UK is led by Mike LeBeau, a former senior engineer at Google who founded  the company’s voice search software and moved to London to join Oculus in January.
