Head of Global Intellectual Property Operations

(Menlo Park, CA)

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 Intellectual Property & Privacy team develops solutions to empower and protect our community of users, rights holders, and Facebook by managing legal risk at scale and fostering a trusted platform. We do so by creating scaled systems to address the issues impacting their experiences with the suite of Facebook and Instagram products, and packaging these insights for the rest of the company.

We are seeking a leader to provide vision and strategy for how Intellectual Property and Privacy concerns, globally and locally, influence upcoming product launches, existing workflows, and support for current events. With our focus on Media, Commerce, and Ads products on the rise, special attention to evolving our management of risk concerns for ads, goods, music, and video will be key tenants of success. This individual will assume management responsibilities in developing our talented team members, work with team members to build an efficient workforce, as well as drive cross-functional impact with our internal and external partners. Candidates will be data driven, self-motivated, and flexible to frequent changes. They are expected to think creatively about nebulous issues and are passionate about problem solving. They will lead regional teams and will have to demonstrate a sustained ability to hire and develop talent. They will also be able to work successfully across teams and countries. This role is based in Menlo Park, California.
