Data Analyst, Communications

(Menlo Park, CA)

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.

More than 1.7 billion people use Facebook each month to connect with friends, family, and favorite public figures over the events and topics that matter most to them. The Data Comms team’s mission is to create data stories that highlight the many ways in which people come together on Facebook during those key moments, from a Super Bowl to the Grammys to a presidential election. We also partner with other Comms departments across Ads, Corporate, and Product to provide innovative insights that support critical public narratives within each functional area.
