We build systems that allow billions of people all over the world to connect and communicate using whatever devices they have available. Our researchers and engineers are constant innovators as they design and build scalable, fast, reliable, and efficient systems. Moreover, fast evolving social apps and highly dynamic social workloads present many unique research opportunities. From distributed systems, to data centers, hardware, storage, mobile and beyond, the entire Facebook platform is our lab for research, development, and innovation.
As a Research Scientist at Facebook, you will help build the systems behind Facebooks products, create web applications that reach millions of people, build high volume Servers and be a part of a team that's working to help connect people around the globe. The ideal candidate will have a keen interest in relevant engineering fields, such as (but not limited to) distributed software systems, storage systems, data warehousing and analytics, database systems, operating systems, networking systems, programming languages, compilers & runtime systems, security & privacy, cryptography, and mobile systems.
