Facebook Building New Engineering Team In LondonBy: Josh Wolford - July 25, 2012
If you’re anywhere near London (or have the inclination to make a move) and fancy yourself a talented engineer, you could land a job with Facebook.
That’s because the company has just announced that they are hiring a new engineering team to be based in London.
From a note on the Facebook Engineering page:
London is a perfect fit for Facebook engineering – it’s a global hub, and it has a vibrant local startup community with lots of great technical talent. Our team in London will start small, focusing on building a core of great engineers, and then grow over time and eventually focus on building products in key areas like mobile and platform.
If you’re serious about getting a job inside this new engineering office, you could always visit the London jobs page. There, we’re reminded that Facebook offers 25 yearly vacation days and 9 company holidays as well as paid baby leave and a free gym membership. Not bad.
“Despite the size of our service – 900 million users and growing – we still push new code to the site every day. We eliminate unnecessary process and give all our engineers the opportunity to work on the things that matter most,” said London engineering team leader Philip Su. “Our engineers in London – like those in Menlo Park, New York, and Seattle – will be able to pursue great ideas and ship products quickly.”[Image via Engineering Like A Boss Facebook page]
