Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways.

  3. Work collaboratively with marketing managers, product managers, growth marketing, and researchers to design, execute, measure and improve marketing campaigns and product experience.

  4. Translate data insights into actions and recommendations that will drive brand sentiment, user growth and engagement, and marketing effectiveness.

  5. Produce charts, presentations, and executive summaries that clearly communicate findings to internal stakeholders.

  6. Explain complex modeling approaches in simple terms and develop compelling narratives that connect data analysis with business problems.

  7. Design and implement reporting dashboards that track key metrics and performance trends, and provide actionable insights to marketing leadership.
