Facebook Data Science Manager, Analytics in Tel Aviv, Israel
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. Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.
The job is to be the "data eyes and ears" guiding the product team. We're building innovative, exciting products used by many millions of people around the world. The data scientist finds what's working, what can be improved, what's missing. While not a management role, the data scientist drives strategy and roadmap of a large number of engineers and designers.
Suited for people with many years' experience studying data to guide product development. Experience leading a large data team is an advantage. The key attributes needed are: mastery of SQL, strong quantitative logic, core statistical knowledge, instinctive product sense and focus on real-world impact.
