Product Designer (AR Specialist)

(London, United Kingdom)

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 was built to help people connect and share, and over the last decade our tools have played a critical part in changing how people around the world communicate with one another. With over a billion people using the service and more than fifty offices around the globe, a career at Facebook offers countless ways to make an impact in a fast growing organization.

Come be a part of a team of designers passionate about creating the very best product for Facebook's billion users. As a Product Designer, you will be involved in every aspect of the product development process, from brainstorming the next great product innovation to tweaking pixels right before launch. You will be expected to utilize your full range of product design, interaction design, and visual design skills, and you will own the experience for a wide area of the Facebook product.

We are looking for product designers who are considered senior on the team. You contribute as a leader in some capacity (whether on your direct team or throughout design.) You may be a Design Lead for your product area, with explicit accountabilities for the design quality of a team. At this point, you may also consider switching over to the management track, which runs parallel to the Individual Contributor Product Designer track. We are hiring product designers across a number of areas, including business solutions such as advertising for emerging markets and publisher solutions, as well as for our core app team, focused on friendsharing.

We have a really exciting opening for a Product Designer to join our Camera and Sharing team in London. Our goal is to democratize the development of art and creative effects for the world. We are building creative tools for anyone, whether you're a professional artist, a business, or a consumer. We believe that anyone should be empowered to create something to help others express themselves on Facebook, and we aim to make this as simple and as accessible as possible. A designer on this team will work on a range of products, enabling people from different backgrounds and levels of expertise to contribute to our community and help us build our vision for the future.

As a Product Designer you will own an entire product space or work on projects that encompass multiple features and are broad/ambiguous in scope. Given a high-level problem, you are able to deliver concrete end-to-end solutions that help define a product vision. You demonstrate solid leadership skills. You have strong partnerships with product managers and engineers, likely providing product direction and exerting significant influence in defining goals for your product area. Your skill level across product thinking, interaction design, and execution & craft is generally solid across the board, with one or more areas being areas of particular strength. You have a good grasp of the medium you are designing for, and you make effective use of prototyping tools. You may be designing new patterns or introducing new standards in your work that later become adopted by others. You succinctly and effectively communicate your work and may be called upon to represent your product team to executive leadership or in design forums. You are actively mentoring junior designers or interns, or participating in design-team-wide initiatives (examples include: interviewing, recruiting, mentoring workshops, design standards, improving design tools, etc.)

This is a full-time position based in our London office.
