Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities — we're just getting started.
Production Engineers at Facebook are hybrid software/systems engineers who ensure that Facebook's services run smoothly and have the capacity for future growth. They are embedded in every one of Facebook's product and infrastructure teams and are core participants in every significant engineering effort underway in the company.
Our team is comprised of varying levels of experience and backgrounds, from new grads to industry veterans. Relevant industry experience is important (Software Engineer, Site Reliability Engineer (SRE), Systems Engineer, DevOps Engineer, Network Engineer, Systems Administrator, Linux Administrator, Database Administrator or similar role), but ultimately less so than your demonstrated abilities and attitude. We sail into uncharted waters every day at Facebook in Production Engineering, and we are always learning.
A Production Engineer at Facebook can be thought of as the SRE, SRO, or DevOps in other corporations, but that would be an understatement. Rather, we sit with our software teams, ask about risks we see, suggest changes, actually implement changes, as well as facilitate interactions cross-group -- and they teach us as much as we share with them. A varied role within the company that some describe asnot-Software Engineering
(ie everything outside of delivering features) but that's also not entirely accurate. Like my Software Engineer peers I work on code, but I also work on people, and my focus is around production and coordination at massive scale rather than individual features.
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.
Facebook is defined by our unique culture – one that rewards impact. We encourage our people to be bold and solve the problems they care most about. Facebook employees work in small teams that move fast and iterate to develop new products. Together, we help others build stronger communities — and we're just getting started.
