Software Engineer, Intern/Co-op

(London, United Kingdom - Menlo Park, CA - New York, NY - Seattle, WA - Boston, MA)

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.

Want to build new features and products that touch more than a billion people around the world? Want to build new features that improve existing products like Photos, Video, Groups, NewsFeed, Search, Mobile and Messaging? Want to solve unique, large-scale, highly complex technical problems?

Our development cycle is extremely fast, and we've built tools to keep it that way. It's common to write code and have it running live on the site just a few days later. If you work for us, you will make an impact, immediately.
