Facebook announced its intention to grow its staff in its Dublin, Ireland office by about 100, and open a new location in Washington, D.C., part of its ongoing worldwide expansion.
Here’s our weekly look at changes on the Facebook Careers Page, including more details on who Facebook is looking for in the new offices.
In Ireland, Facebook is set to expand its staff by 85 in the next year, adding to its current staff of about 200, according to The Guardian. The Dublin office serves as the Europe, the Middle East and Africa headquarters for Facebook and focuses primarily on advertising, sales in all types of languages, account management, finance and human resources while less than 20 work on engineering and platform operations.
These priorities are already reflected in Facebook’s Career Page postings where the following Dublin positions were posted: Partner Engineer (Mobile) – Dublin, Account Manager – Swedish (Dublin), Analyst, Online Sales Operations – Dutch (Dublin), Analyst, Online Sales Operations – Swedish (Dublin), Account Manager – Dutch (Dublin), Law Enforcement Response Analyst, French (Dublin) – Contract, Law Enforcement Response Analyst, Spanish (Dublin) – Contract, Physical Security Manager (Dublin), Customer Marketing Associate – EMEA (Dublin), Customer Marketing Manager – EMEA (Dublin) and Marketing Communications Manager – EMEA (Dublin).
As far as Facebook’s plans in Washington, D.C., The Washington Post reported that the company signed a lease in late November for offices on F Street, downtown. The new space is 8,600 square feet, enough for about 30 or 40 people, according to the Post; in the article, Facebook said that it planned to grow long-term and make the physical move in April.
This announcement made for some interesting timing, considering that two D.C.-based positions were no longer listed on the Careers Page: Associate Manager, Policy Communications and Manager, Public Policy. As the company has gotten more attention from Congress over privacy issues, it has been building its local presence to get its message across.
Other positions that are no longer listed include several Dublin-based security positions, the Lead Recruiter position in Singapore, a Marketing Campaign Manager, several Strategic Partner Development positions, a Network Engineer – Voice, the Benelux Head of Sales position, and Business Development Manager – Mobile.
A bunch of new sales positions were also posted this week to work across Europe, from Hamburg to Milan to Paris to Sweden, but also Singapore. Partner Engineering positions, as well as about a dozen U.S.-based Strategist – Market Solutions positions were also listed.
Two positions also of note that Facebook added to its Page this week were Litigation Counsel and Senior Commercial Transactions Counsel.
