  • “I’m not a typical engineer. I didn’t even know what computer engineering was until I went to college. I was pretty good at math and science, so I decided to look into programming and signed up for a few introductory classes. While I loved the work, I didn’t feel like I was learning fast enough, so I started watching YouTube videos about programming, and realized the best way for me to get the coding experience I needed was to build something.

    Today, I’m a software engineer at WhatsApp. I’m passionate about my team’s focus on connecting people who don’t have the luxury of high-speed internet and technology. I'm moving to London on a one-year assignment to help build an entirely new product from the ground up and I'm excited for the opportunity.

    I want people to know you don’t have to come from a certain background or look a certain way to be at Facebook—you just have to be curious and you have to be prepared to work hard.” —Wayne Jackson, Software Engineer, WhatsApp

  • “Before moving to Ireland, I worked for a company in India as a Systems Engineer. While working as a subcontractor with Facebook on a project, I got the opportunity to join the team at Facebook Clonee as a Controls Engineer. I loved my career, so the offer was very exciting. But I felt nervous about leaving my family and friends to move to a new country. I also wondered if I’d fit in with my new colleagues. Almost immediately, I realized these worries were unfounded. In my role, the focus is on providing a safe and sustainable environment to store the systems data across Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, so people can stay connected. The biggest surprise has been the collaborative and open culture at Facebook. My new coworkers gave me a voice, and I feel comfortable asking teammates, including my manager, anything. They have been supportive and give me a sense of belonging. If you are given the opportunity to take a job in another country, don’t give it a second thought. Go for it! With teammates like mine, anyone can make it work.” —Shivanki J., Data Center Controls Engineer
