The Product Systems Information Technology & Data Analytics organization has openings for Mid-level Factory XR Software developers to join our growing Factory XR team to configure, extend and implement Extended Reality (XR) solutions for the factory. Come join us, to be a part of the first XR product team at the Boeing company that is deploying fully supported and industrialized solutions to the factory floor.
