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 SMB team contributes directly to this mission by connecting every small business in the world with their customers on Facebook and then helping them grow through solutions like pages, advertising, and messaging. We succeed when we help our customers grow their business. The SMB team at Facebook is one of two sales channels responsible for Facebook's multi-billion dollar advertising business.

The leader will be responsible for solving one of the key challenges for our future business: how do we support our rapidly growing client-basis and provide value for our clients at scale.
