  • “For me, the most exciting thing is the fact that most of the problems we are trying to solve don't have a reference implementation, we are essentially the first ones attempting to solve these problems at Facebook scale. Because of that, we have to remain creative and always think of new ways to approach problems, both methodologically and technically.” - Shachar, data engineering manager working on our ads team.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    Authority to do the right thing. Smart people who care about the customer. People trump process. Opportunity to make a difference is infinite.

    Cons

    People outside assume we are bigger than we are. Which can lead to mis conception regarding the people in the company's ability to do everything as a priority,

    Advice to Management

    We need stronger more proactive PR and CSR to show we care.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Facebook.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening then had a few rounds of technical interviews. Interview process is pretty fast compared to a lot of companies and recruiters are great with communication and very supportive the entire way though.
