Our Culture
At Facebook, we are constantly iterating, solving problems and working together to connect people all over the world. That’s why it’s important that our workforce reflects the diversity of the people we serve. Hiring people with different backgrounds and points of view helps us make better decisions, build better products and create better experiences for everyone.
Careers at Facebook
Diversity and Inclusion at Facebook
"At orientation, they tell you, ‘This is your company now.’ Those words are quite literally painted on the walls. It’s a pretty amazing thing—from day one, your voice matters."
Grace S., Creative Strategist
"Everyone cares about the work they’re doing. We all want to help our community have the safest and most positive experiences possible."
Steven C., Engineering Manager
"Nothing at Facebook is somebody else’s problem. If you roll up your sleeves, sometimes you’re able to make impact where you may not have thought you could."
Payton I., Public Policy Manager
"There are diverse people from all over the world working here, but we have one thing in common: we are and always have been builders."
Alberto B., Software Engineer
Our Principles
Our principles are what we stand for. They are beliefs we hold deeply and make tradeoffs to pursue.
Give People a Voice
People deserve to be heard and to have a voice — even when that means defending the right of people we disagree with.
Build Connection and Community
Our services help people connect, and when they’re at their best, they bring people closer together.
Serve Everyone
We work to make technology accessible to everyone, and our business model is ads so our services can be free.
Keep People Safe and Protect Privacy
We have a responsibility to promote the best of what people can do together by keeping people safe and preventing harm.
Promote Economic Opportunity
Our tools level the playing field so businesses grow, create jobs and strengthen the economy.
