Public Policy Manager

(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 an analytical thinker with expertise on global security and political violence to join our Policy Management team.

As a Public Policy Manager, you will work with a talented and experienced team of subject matter experts driving product policy globally for the Facebook family of applications. You will have particular responsibility for understanding violent and extremist movements and will use that knowledge to shape Facebook policy. This will include analyzing the organizations themselves, driving counter-extremism work, and engaging government and civil society on Facebook's behalf.

Successful candidates will demonstrate uncommon expertise on security challenges, be able to abstract that granular knowledge to shape policy applied globally, and have the initiative and problem-solving skills to work collaboratively across teams to both define and implement policy. The right candidate will be committed to countering radicalism, hate, and violence online and be passionate about the positive power of social media.

This is a full-time position located in our Washington, DC office, but will entail significant travel.
