Facebook is the most popular social networking product in the world, with over 2 billion monthly active users. Our mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. People use Facebook to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them.

So far, we've connected more than 2 billion people — which means we still have more than 5 billion to go. The scale and complexity of our work are unprecedented, and the work we do makes a real difference in the lives of people around the world. Over time, we’ve expanded the Facebook family to include Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, Augmented & Virtual Reality, and Facebook Connectivity — but when it comes to bringing the world closer together, we’re just getting started.

Engineering at Facebook
Engineering team and processes

Everyday, we're driven by our values.

Be Bold. Building great things means taking risks. We have a saying: The riskiest thing is to take no risks. in a world that's changing so quickly you're guaranteed to fail if you don't take any risks.

Focus on Impact. To make the most impact, we need to solve the most important problems. We expect Facebook employees to avoid wasting time on minor issues and focus on truly big challenges.

Move Fast. We believe that it’s better to move fast and make mistakes than to move slowly and miss opportunities. Doing so enables us to build more things and learn faster.

Be Open. Informed people make better decisions and make a greater impact — so we work hard to ensure that everyone at Facebook can access as much information about the company as possible.

Build Social Value. At Facebook, we’re trying to bring the world closer together — not just grow our business. Our people focus on creating real value for the world — every day and in everything they do.

Technical Challenges

Over 2 billion people log onto Facebook every single month. No other company in the world has that scale and that means lots of novel technical problems for engineers to keep us operating at that scale (and as we continue to grow).
