Facebook Careers: Vietnam Growth and Financial Planning

By Sara Inés Calderón Comment

Facebook looks to be expanding its Vietnam operations and financial planning this week, as we take a look at the Facebook Careers Page.

First off, a Corporate FP&A position which seems to be based in Palo Alto, CAlif. is being advertised for someone who will be “responsible for all aspects of corporate and consolidated level financial planning and analysis.” The position requires one to work on quarterly and monthly reporting and analysis, make analysis on budget vs. actual, monthly trends, as well as help with the corporate financial planning calendar.

A bachelor’s degree in finance, 10 years of financial analysis experience and the ability to thrive under pressure are a few of the requirements and responsibilities listed for the position.

Next is a contract position in Vietnam called Manager, Policy and Growth. This person’s background has to be pretty specific. Not only does the person need to be fluent in both English and Vietnamese, but they must have a background in tech and social media, business strategy and legislative and regulatory issues.

The posting stresses that the person filling the Hanoi-based position have “experience in government relations work and navigating government agencies along with an extensive network of contacts in the government and the technology space.” Interesting, considering how the government in Vietnam has responded to Facebook’s presence in that country — it has reportedly tried to block it.

This 12-month contract position will be involved in driving user acquisition programs, identifying growth opportunities and represent Facebook in meetings with government officials in Vietnam.
