Come join a diverse and collaborative team of researchers who work directly with product design to make the best social platform for Facebook's billion+ users.

This position is based in our MPK, California office. The right candidates will be excellent communicators, knowledgeable about UI design, passionate about social computing, comfortable in a flat, fast moving organization, excited to collaborate, and focused squarely on impacting the design of Facebook.
