Program Manager, New Program & Product Embedment

Austin, TX

Meta is seeking an experienced construction professional to join our Data Center construction team as a Program Manager. In this role, you will work closely with the Data Center Engineering and Construction teams and various internal departments to develop infrastructure programs and lead their successful deployment. The core responsibilities will be on developing and leading data center infrastructure programs and global rollout of retrofit construction programs to site Project Managers for execution. A typical infrastructure program may involve numerous data center sites across North America and EMEA. The ideal candidate will have a background in managing large multisite/multifacility infrastructure programs consisting of many retrofit projects across diverse geographical regions. The candidate will also have experience leading non-infrastructure programs, such as product embedment or other organizational initiatives. In addition to strong communication and project management skills, the ability to generate program frameworks from high level concepts, and then lead the embedment of those concepts, will be keys to success in this role. Approximately 25% travel to project or headquarter sites located across the globe.
