Company Investigator

(Austin, TX – Dublin, Ireland – London, United Kingdom – Menlo Park, CA – New York, NY – Seattle, WA – Singapore)

Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share, and make the world more open and connected. Through our growing family of apps and services, we’re building a different kind of company that helps billions of people around the world connect and share what matters most to them. 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 make the world more open and accessible. Connecting the world takes every one of us—and we’re just getting started.

Facebook is looking for an experienced, creative, collaborative workplace investigator to join our investigations team. As an investigator, you will be asked to look into any matter that may be a potential violation of law or company policy. This will involve background research, investigative interviews, and de-brief meetings in conjunction with legal, HRBPs and the business.

Partnering closely with the Employment Law Department, Security, HR Business Partners and Internal Audit, the successful candidate must be able to conduct a prompt, thorough and fair investigation but always remain respectful, pleasant and diplomatic. The role will involve travel when investigations take place in other Facebook offices across the globe. The successful candidate must have a sense of humor, strong work ethic and exceptional business partnering skills.

Key to success in this role will be the ability to work effectively across geographical and cultural boundaries with an ability to discern systemic issues revealed during the investigative process and articulate them in the form of findings and conclusions to the business so that long-term solutions can be developed and applied.

In addition to conducting investigations, Company Investigators will work closely with the Learning and Development team in developing and delivering compliance education programs and other trainings designed to proactively address workplace issues.
