Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities — we're just getting started.

The Workplace team are focused on building products that empower people to work together. Companies like Starbucks, Oxfam and Spotify already use Workplace to share ideas, collaborate on documents and strengthen their co-worker relationships. It's starting to replace in-person meetings, it's reducing dependency on email and for traditional organisations, we believe it's the catalyst for cultural change. 

We take the best innovations from consumer Facebook (like Live, Reactions and Messenger Bots) and re-imagine them for business. We make new and improved ways of collaboration and administration (like multi-company groups and custom integrations). We design and run experiments to help us grow quickly and sustainably. 

We're a principled team who want to make things better for millions of office workers, baristas, warehouse staff, agricultural workers, educators and charities around the world. Come help us invent the future of work. Our product team is London-based, making for a great working relationships and respectable working hours.
