Data Analyst, Media Operations

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 â€" we're just getting started.

Facebook has changed how we communicate with our friends and family and connected billions of people around the world. Our next step is building and supporting an informed community.
Media Operations is at the forefront of this mission. We support major media partners like the New York Times and Fox News and public figures like Beyoncé and the pope. We help them launch new products. We protect them from impostors. We verify their pages. We take down hackers. We make sure our policies apply and, when they fail, we change them. We get more efficient every day, and we're looking for an analyst who's as excited as we are to build and support the future of media. This role is based in Menlo Park, CA.
