  • Episode 8 of Inside Facebook Mobile has just landed! Mihaela and Pascal chat with Mona from Instagram. We talk about Mona's journey from working on web in California to scroll performance at Instagram NYC and how performance overall is approached from measuring, tackling regressions and establishing a company-wide performance culture. We also go through some of our listener questions about team structure, time and release management and pick this up later in our interview where we discuss differences in our overall approach to engineering and QA between Facebook and Instagram. Tune in for more! https://fb.careers/2GnmHg3

  • We invited Business Insider to tour our engineering offices in London. Check out what they thought of our tech hub, from Oculus VR spaces to Analog Outpost, and from the home of Workplace and AR/VR teams to our games room.

    We got an exclusive tour inside Facebook's engineering office in London - here's what we saw

    Facebook's London engineering office opened in December 2017. The office is home to over 1,000 tech employees across seven different floors. The office features a VR booth, futuristic looking sleeping pods, and a buffet-style food hall where everything is free. Have you ever wondered what it's like to work at Facebook?
