Research Manager, Connectivity Lab
Menlo Park, CA
Facebook was built to help people connect and share, and over the last decade our tools have played a critical part in changing how people around the world communicate with one another. With over a billion people using the service and more than fifty offices around the globe, a career at Facebook offers countless ways to make an impact in a fast growing organization.
We believe connecting the world is one of the greatest challenges of our generation, and that everyone deserves access to the knowledge, tools and opportunities that come from being connected. That’s why we, along with other tech companies, launched Internet.org (http://internet.org/), a global partnership to make the Internet available to the two thirds of the worlds population that doesn’t have it. The Connectivity Lab team has been working on developing new platforms and solutions for connectivity. Come join us and help build and lead a research team to support our Connectivity Lab.
