Seattle, Washington, United States

At Meta, we work on some of the most challenging issues in infrastructure and large-scale distributed systems. Over the next few years, we plan to make transformative changes in how we manage our data center design and operations, server fleet, and compute and storage services. The goal is to move towards a much higher degree of automation, efficiency and fault tolerance, and much more fluid resource management, and advanced elastic compute. It is one of the largest infrastructure projects that Facebook has ever undertaken, involving thousands of engineers across software, production, electrical and mechanical engineering, and the Core Systems team is at the heart of the initiative. And with this comes the improve efficiency of capacity along with defining and delivering a unified approach to end-to-end efficiency. We are seeking a Group Technical Program Manager to lead the Core Systems Technical Program Management (TPM) team driving this initiative. The Group Technical Program Manager will have both deep technical and program expertise that can drive results with agility and leadership, and serve as an inspirational team leader that can gain the support and efforts of stakeholders teams and task owners. Demonstrated experience building, growing, and mentoring technical program management or engineering teams of 6 or more, and a proven track record of scaling infrastructure in a highly transformative environment is important. This person will be an innovative, intellectually curious problem solver. She/he does not need to have the “correct” answer to everything but, rather, should be able to quickly drive the conversation toward a productive programmatic solution by including the right stakeholders and understanding technical design trade-offs.

In this role, you will go through engineering boot camp and are able to champion building an overarching understanding of the whole system architecture. As a peer to Engineering Directors and Managers, the individual will heavily contribute to planning, strategy definition, and execution; negotiating cross-team dependencies, while representing core Meta values and perspectives.
