Privacy & Public Policy Manager, Facebook Technologies

(Menlo Park, CA - Washington, DC)

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.

Facebook is looking for a Privacy Manager to join its Public Policy and Privacy team. The team's mission is to develop privacy-protective and innovative approaches to data that help bring the world closer together and improve people's lives. In this role, you'll help shape the company's approach to privacy for the next generation of products and technologies that we're building for the more than two billion people in our community - things like virtual reality, augmented reality, hardware, and more. You'll work closely with product managers, engineers, and cross-functional partners across the company to build privacy into the products and services that we're developing and shape Facebook's privacy vision in these areas. You'll also interact with privacy experts, academics, and other stakeholders outside the company and will play a key role in influencing the development of privacy standards and regulation for new technologies in our industry and the policy community at large. And you'll serve as a subject matter expert for Facebook's global policy team on Facebook's consumer products and work with our teams to evaluate and respond to legislative and regulatory developments around privacy. The ideal candidate for this role is a self-starter, a good team player, and creative problem solver that is able to switch easily between detailed work and high-level strategic thinking. This candidate will be deeply familiar with consumer privacy, have a meaningful understanding of stakeholders and perspectives in the privacy community, and be able to use this understanding to promote privacy in Facebook's products and services, and to drive privacy improvements across our industry. You should be passionate about the services we provide and the people that we serve.
